Coffee = My Love Language

As you all know the love of my life was in El Salvador this week.

I welcomed him home last night and couldn't wait to hear all about his trip. But before he would get to the good stuff he wanted shower us all with the thoughtful pieces of El Salvador he brought back for each of us.

For Ethan he brought him a bright yellow shirt with a cool lizard on it. Ethan was THRILLED! He loves T-shirts with pictures.

For the girls he brought them each back a hand made change purse. Both had a beautiful assortment of colors around a main color - pink for Madison and purple for Sadie. They were PERFECT.

And for me...well after 14 years of marriage I can say this man knows his woman!! He brought me back 3lbs of freshly ground El Salvadorean coffee. Oh, was I delighted! Last night I actually dreamt about drinking it this morning. As I was sipping the hot, rich but so smooth coffee I fell deeply and madly in love with him all over again...:-)

It's the simple things, really!

Oh, and I will post the praise reports and pictures soon.
