How did I get such a wonderful Hubby?

Hubby knew what a difficult Mother's Day this was going to be for me. Since my kids had already given me Mother's Day cards when they came to visit with my Dad, we figured they weren't planning on coming over on Sunday. So I asked Hubby to plan something to keep me distracted on this day. He found a "Mother's Day Open House" at Jewell Towne Vineyard in Amesbury, MA. We went and did some wine well as chocolate tasting and cookie tasting. We found a nice red wine we liked and bought a bottle to bring home. There was also a woman there who made her own jewelry, so Hubby bought me a lovely pair of hand-made silver and pearl earrings.
The picture really doesn't do them justice.
After that, we went to our favorite spot, Salisbury Beach Reservation. It was extremely windy and cold, but we bundled up and walked up and down the beach. We always find nice shells, and this time I found an intact sand dollar.
Then we drove around to the center and got some fried dough. I think Hubby likes to buy me fried dough on a windy day so he can amuse himself and laugh when the powdered sugar covers me like a blanket.
Finally, we headed to Newburyport where there's a nice boardwalk to walk along the ocean. We stopped in the "Oldies Marketplace" (aka Junk Shop) to browse. But we didn't buy anything.
It turned out to be a pretty nice day. Hubby did a good job of taking care of me on this Mother's Day. I don't know what I'd do without his kindness and love and support.
I love you, Sweetheart.

I love you right back darling. We all miss mom and she deserves our tears. I love spoiling you since you spoil me rotten every day of the year (as you vowed at Salisbury).
AND the Oldies marketplace is NOT a junk shop! (it is a purveyor of antiques!)
