Gratitude Day 13: Gifts

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope you're all having a wonderful day so far and are able to enjoy the lovely weather we're having (if you're from the UK). Today's theme from the 30 days of gratitude is a certain gift that I have cherished and why?

When you think of gifts, most of the time you would assume that it's some sort of item that you have received, but there's all sorts of gifts that someone can give you: love, affection, time, and it doesn't have to be something of value either. I think the best gifts of all are priceless really. Doing something special for someone that shows that you put a lot of effort into something, like a candlelit dinner, are some of the best and thoughtful gifts!

When it comes to a gift I'm thankful for, it would have to be when I got proposed to by my husband in 2013. I really didn't think that it was going to happen in the end but I'm very happy that it did. My husband and I were visiting a castle and I was really excited to actually see a castle for the first time that I didn't realize he would actually propose to me in one of them! It was a beautiful day and I remember there being a lot of school kids on a trip there because he got down on one knee and kind of had to rush his words because we heard them coming up the stairs and didn't want an audience, but it was really sweet and an emotional moment for me. It's not about getting a ring at all and I really mean that when I say it. I love the meaning behind why you get married in the first place. I believe that as long as you both work hard at it each and everyday, marriage can be a beautiful thing!

I'm thankful for my husband! He has been the greatest gift to me so far because there's not many men out there like him. He's definitely not perfect but I appreciate him for the person that he is.  I am so happy and excited now that we are married to start a life together and make our house a home! 

Have a wonderful day!
