- What’s the most romantic thing your spouse has ever done for you?
My husband has the gift of wooing. Literally. He took a test, and that’s what it said. So I could go on and on here, but I’m just going to share the cutest thing he did lately. He wore a Hawaiian shirt with my face on it for our flight to Mexico.
- Where is the most romantic place you and your spouse have ever been?
He grew up in Maui, so he took me there for our honeymoon twelve years ago. We hadn’t been on a tropical vacation again until last week’s flight to Mexico. It was magical.
- What simple gesture does your spouse do that melts you every time?
He sings to me. On a karaoke microphone at home. Usually country songs. Sometimes on the back patio when it’s raining.
- What is the most caring thing your spouse has ever done for you?
He took care of me through breast cancer. He told this story to friends in Mexico, and I didn’t realize how bad it had gotten. But (sparing you the gritty details) when I couldn’t even swallow the pills that were supposed to keep me from vomiting, he crushed them in my applesauce.
- What is the most caring thing you’ve ever done for your spouse?
I encouraged him to buy a motorcycle. It was his dream, but he’s not a dreamer. He’s a supporter of my dreams. So I sent him a photo of a motorcycle dealership with a reader board that said, “Your wife called. She said it’s okay.” And now we go on crazy motorcycle rides to the Grand Canyon and the Redwoods.
- Who said, “I love you” first, you or your spouse?
He did. I’d been through a tough relationship before him, so I responded, “I don’t know what that means.” He said, “I’m going to show you with everything that I am.” And he has.
Question for Readers: What’s the funniest shirt or item of clothing you own or have seen?
