any random tuesday

I’ve told this story before.

When my husband and i first started dating, i learned that N is not the mushy kind of guy. Sentiment is not his game. He is awesome and caring and funny and scary smart, but not super expressive about his feelings. i couldn’t count on him to remember anniversaries or birthdays. He wasn’t one to plan romantic dates or trips. It was kind of a bummer since he was just so darned perfect me in almost every other way.

But then, one day while i was at work (i had an office job a long time ago!) i got a delivery. A big bouquet of flowers.

The card simple said, “for a random tuesday”

i had a lightbulb moment.

N might not make the grand gestures at the conventional times, but on his own time, it was there.

In the months that followed, i was often surprised to find little treats here and there….a can of my favorite wasabi peas on my doorstep when i went out one morning for work….a snickers bar on the shelf in the refrigerator after a rough week….even a quick drive-by my office to deliver a starbucks brownie frappucino.

All random acts, that still pop up on occasion even 10 years later.

All started on one random tuesday.
