For Her. For Him.

Belated happy "Love's" Day to all of you. I apologize for the late greeting. I have been very busy lately that I was not able to post about Valentine's Day.
In the morning of the Valentine's Day, we went to church. After the service, there were lunch served at the cafeteria (proceeds goes to fund raising for the mission). After lunch, we went home, and there my husband and I exchanged our gifts to each other. We agreed not to give something consumable like flowers, candy or chocolates, but instead, to give each other what we think is needed.
I gave my present firts. It is a pajama set and a handmade card (I made myself). I gave him pajama set because 3 of his pajama set were badly ripped very lately.
After I gave mine, it was my husband's turn. He made me close my eyes, and led me to the guest room, and there I saw it, a portable electric sewing machine and a message card. I was really surprised. I didn't expect to received something that worth like this. I am so happy. He knows I will be happy to have this. I have been telling him several months ago that if we got money, we will get a portable electric sewing machine. I love sewing. I have been making dress since I was 12 years old. I had spent 5 years working as a sewer in a garment factory. I have been into sewing business (self-employment) for 4 years. And now, I am so excited to revive my passion in sewing. I guess I don't have to buy pajamas for my husband, anymore. Instead, I will just make pajamas for him. Hmm... It made sense. (he-he-he)
Later that afternoon, we went to the mall to watch Avatar. We were both hesitant to watch that, but because of the recommendation of his family and friends, that was why we choose to watch Avatar, and to our surprise, we like the movie. It was not what we expected. It was really a good movie and we are glad we watch it. After the movie, we went home, and there he made romantic dinner with candle lights and music. It was such a great dinner. Thank you very much, my huckleberry. I love you very much.
