Ladies, sometimes small things are better than large ones

Five years ago today, I walked down the aisle toward the cutest, kindest, funniest, smartest man I’ve ever met. And he has a British accent – what more could a girl ask for?

As a romance writer, I spend my time dreaming up men who could appeal to women like me. Although they could never do my real-life hero justice, I hope I create characters who show how awesome it can be to find the partner who’s perfect for you. And I try to find little ways that my characters can show their love for each other, because to me they are often the most heartfelt gestures.

This week I searched online for anniversary ideas, though it’s tricky since we’re trying to get rid of loads of stuff and save money for a Christmas trip back home to California. I found this video, though, that made me smile (yes, I’m a nerd), so I wanted to share it with you guys.

I love how much time this man put in to showing how much he cared.

My husband is still my ideal man. And though this hasn’t been the most romantic of anniversaries, what with us trying to pack and clean our whole flat up, he did give me a wonderful gift. When the packing overwhelmed me, he wrapped his arms around me, gave me a hug, and then helped me decide what clothes to get rid of – something I’ve always struggled to do.

Would it be weird if I said my mom used to do the same thing when it was spring-cleaning time?

What’s the most thoughtful way someone has shown you they love you? Have you ever given someone a perfect “gift” (whether an item or not)?
