That's love

My husband and I met getting ice cream.

While we both have a seemingly insatiable sweet tooth, we did not share a love of coffee ice cream, one of my husband's favorite go-to flavors. To this day, while I greatly enjoy my cup of joe, coffee flavored ice cream is nowhere near the realm of flavors I am willing to try.

That fateful night, when discussing flavors and favorite combinations, this new, handsome stranger, with whom I flirted, pledged that he would not get coffee ice cream, on the off chance that I may want a bite.

That sweet sacrifice was not a one shot deal. To this day, nearly six years later, he still does not order flavors or foods, for that matter, which I don't like, on the off chance that I may want a bite. That's love.

Love is about the little things. Of course, there are also those grand gestures of love. I'm sure you can think of your favorites, but when I think of ice cream and sharing a bite with the one I love, that simple gesture warms my heart and makes me feel like a lucky girl all over again.


  1. So sweet! I think his kindness from the first meeting really captured your attention. I tell people all the time that first impressions matter. Love that you met over icecream and he still shares with you. My hubby is sweet with food too. Yesterday we had leftover ribs from his bday, and two were left. I told him to take them for lunch. I came home and he left one for me. I had to smile. Small gesture, big heart.

  2. Wow, that is love! He doesn't get foods or flavors that you like on the off chance you'll want a bite? That's so very cool. Thanks for linking up with us!

  3. Little things are extremely important...bigger and expensive things could go away, but little happy moments like this will not.

  4. You're so right, Robin. The little things are the big things. It's the little things that nourish and sustain us. We're very blessed.
