Show and Tell Saturdays- Favorite Gift from Hubby

Hello everyone. Welcome to the 3rd week of Show and Tell Saturdays. This weeks theme is our favorite gift from our husband. Well one of them at least. Do you have one that just stands out above the rest?
The thing I chose brought tears to my eyes when I opened it Christmas morning about 5 years ago. It's a Willow Tree Figurine of a man and woman dancing. (Well at least that's how we look when we're dancing. I always put my hand on his heart with his hand over mine.) This is special to me because there are so many moments I steal with my husband in our kitchen. I will usually start humming a tune and we will break into a nice little slow dance. Most of the time it's just he and I but sometimes we are slow dancing in the midst of kids and dogs running around our feet. He knows that sometimes I just "need" these little moments with him and he takes the time to stop and just dance with me. So for him to remember that and know how important it is to me, makes me feel special. So here it is, one of many favorite gifts from my hubbalicious! (with a bonus picture of us together on the beach.)


Have something to show and tell about? Blog about it and come back here and link to the post using Mr. Linky below.
Have a great day!!!!

  11. Those are neat! I've seen them before. In fact, I've received one as a gift!

    I couldn't think of anything in particular, that's why I didn't join this week. :( My husband showers me with things, it would be hard to choose just one. He's about to buy me a new cell phone today...maybe that will count? I don't know...cell phones are cool, but for me it's just a tool, not a toy. (I'm not much of a phone talker). Hey, but I'll text! LOL
    Happy Saturday!
