For each big event, I usually end up telling him what I thought about buying for him (it's the thought that counts, right?).
Snowboard, smoker, camping gear.. whatever his latest interest is.
But I never buy it, and life goes on.
This year, I followed through on my idea and actually purchased a present.
Our first anniversary, we bought a house. Our second anniversary, we went to Dallas.
On our third anniversary, without speaking about it, we both bought each other gifts.
As you can see below, we both purchased stereotypical male/female gifts, which made this male and female happy!
His gift to me-Flowers & Chocolate: My gift to him- TV
But after my purchase for him, we still had to take it back to get the right size (which of course, was bigger!).
Here is Ray before he shaved the stash one day earlier than planned (thanks boys of Chesapeake!)
After we exchanges presents, Ray took me to dinner at RedRock.
We got there in perfect time to watch an amazing sunset!
Couldn't resist capturing the scene..
A toast to a great night
and happily ever after.
I love this man
