50 Promises for Marriage

"I'll show you something", he said... "Huh, what? Where are we going?", with my usual perplexed look. "Just wait..." Then he took a right turn and told me "Now close your eyes..." After a few more turns, he parked the car and asked me to open my eyes...

I was bloghopping the other day and saw this article titled 50 Promises for Marriage. I immediately sent a copy to sweeps and told him that these are small things we intend to neglect as the hussle and bussle of our daily activities begin to consume us...

I didnt even receive any replies from him, so I'm not sure if he got a chance to read it at all. I always tend to forget to ask.

Then one time, I just feel that he's overflowing with love and affection. I mean, I can clearly tell something's different... in a good way :o) When he mentioned about reading this article, it put a big smile on my face. Now I know how come suddently he's ultra, mega loveydovey. Don't get me wrong, he is always loveydovey but these days, it's like 10 folds!

So, just want to write about this cool article that I believe is useful to the newly weds and the not-so-newly-weds-anymore :o)

When I opened my eyes, right in front of me are 2 of the most beautifully christmas decorated houses I've ever seen in my entire life! I can't even begin to describe it. It's not just lights and all. To me, it looks like a huge christmas playground! Sweeps said he made a wrong turn the other day and saw these houses and he thought I'd like to see it... so he brought me there. Then he kissed me and he said how much he loves me :o)

So there... isn't it too obvious that it only takes a little to put a big smile on my face? Heeee!

We're going back there one of these days since we didnt get to take some pics of them. I'll post one as soon as we get a shot.

Soooo sweet noh? I love my sweeps... and oh, my Skye too! hehehee!
