To be completely honest, I don’t ♥ NYC, never owned a single piece of clothing or sticker that displayed this sentiment…but it’s not that I don’t like NYC. When I lived 45 minutes away from the big apple, I did frequent it pretty regularly and enjoyed the excursions. It was the place that every person who visited me wanted to see; rightfully so, it’s spectactular and like no other place on earth. But new york city is definely a day trip and nothing else in my opinion. The best day trip being the one where my sister and I took the ferry over and saw “Wicked” on Broadway for her 21st birthday. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Anyway- you might be wondering why there is a picture of a green mug with the very emblem I claim as not true, on this post. Well, see, this mug actually means waaaaay more than anything it says. As many of you know, my husband travels a lot for his job, and while I do travel with him often- this month has been a dry spell for Josi and me in the flying department. And Bart knows that one of the ways I feel loved is by gifts…which he often wrestles with because he doesn’t know what to get me and/or he doesn’t want to spend $ on something dumb. BUT he finally did…and i loved it!!!!!!
If you know me, you know I’m not a trinkety person. And I am not a fan of touristy stuff like magnets and mugs and tshirts that scream stuff to the effect of ‘I’m not a local’. However, when Bart pulled this green apple colored mug from his tiny carry-on last week, I got the biggest grin on my face! I am pretty sure it could have been a plastic troll cup with handles that doubled as ears and I would have been psyched!! Why you might ask?
Because that silly $4.99 nyc mug meant he was thinking of me. And now when I use it every morning- I am reminded that he loves me. It’s that simple. I actually think the mug is pretty cute and thankfully got over my “every mug needs to match” phobia a few years back, so I plan on using it every single morning.
So thanks babydoll, for my sweet mug. I love you and I know you love me too.
ps. Just had to add that the other “best gift giver” in my life is my mom. She rocks!!!
