there are a million reasons why i love him... this is just one of them.

lately my shoulders and back have been a mess ; exhausted from working so much. Soon, i will tell you exactly what i do but it's constant movement on my feet.

max surprised me with coffee bright and early while i was at work last week (seriously? i hit the jackpot in future husbands!) and saw how intense it can be. He also noticed i was tossing and turning in my sleep because i just could not get comfortable. 

this morning, i woke up with a text that said he had a little surprise for me when i woke up.

i was not expecting this envelope on my little pink laptop:



YES!!! an hour deep tissue with hot stones massage at this cute place called The Spa and Salon at Acorn Hill. So charming! the place and my darling fiance.



i've had fabulous massages before (including a few at the W hotel's bliss spa - also a gift from my Max) but lovies, let me tell you-- never before like this one! THE BEST MASSAGE EVER. I truly needed it-- she completely healed my shoulders. Amazing pressure points... just pure amazing! i feel incredible and it's all thanks to this man i love. Who loves me

how i got so lucky, i don't know!

on the way home feeling blissful, i stopped at a local family owned bakery called Chesnut Hill. I picked up this cream puff for Max 


and cupcakes to bring to my favorite postal clerk. I just love her! As you know,  i go to the post office quite often and she's always so helpful and funny. She's so cute and just like me (nosy lol) and asks what's in this box or that package. Yesterday i dropped of Claire's belated birthday gift and she made a joke about the cupcake photo on the front of the box and how i should have sent real ones so she (Carol, my postal clerk) could have had one. I joked with her next time. I made up my mind right then and there to surprise her with cupcakes.

lord knows i can't bake, but support local businesses? my kind of thing. 

making someone's day after i was so incredibly blessed? exactly my kind of thing.


dear micaela's life,

never forget how blessed you are. stay this good? please? and always be thankful. You've got such a loving husband-to-be. Never take that for granted.

love,

me xo

You definitely hit the future husband jackpot! :-) Continue to enjoy your fabulous life, my dear.

Micaela said...

Of course she had left an hour earlier :( boo! but it will be a nice surprise for in the morning!!! and since there were 3 cupcakes, i told the worker he could have one ;) lol i left a little note on the front of the bag for her... i know, i wish i could have seen her reaction but to know that i could possibly make her morning when she first gets to work... i don't know, it's even better! ;)

Claire Kiefer said...

oh my goodness gracious! You had SUCH A GOOD DAY and the fact that you brought cupcakes to your postal worker makes me love you even more. You're such a delightful person who brings so much GOODNESS into the lives of everyone she meets. Seriously. You are lucky to have someone as wonderful and loving and generous as Max, but he is just as lucky to have you. Sometimes you forget that part!

I am smiling thinking of Carol coming into work tomorrow morning and seeing the surprise you left her--she's going to be so excited. Not only because she'll have cupcakes, but because the knowledge that there are good, sweet people out there makes people so happy.

April said...

I'm so just ecstatically happy that your man did this cute little thing for you, and that you gave cupcakes to your postal lady. These are the kinds of things I want to hear about everyday.
