I got a wonderful 24 hours with my SO after a long 3 months away. Unfortunately circumstances have us living 200 miles apart and that's about as often as we get to see each other. My birthday was in July and as a result he missed it. He kept hinting at the gift he got me. Just the fact that he got me a gift made me ecstatic considering neither of my ex-husbands could be bothered to acknowledge my birthday. Well...when I saw him on Thursday he gave me my gift. It was a new Columbia jacket. I've been needing a decent jacket for hiking and this wasn't exactly inexpensive. I know it's not diamonds and flowers but I LOVE that he listens to me and gets me things I need and are useful for gifts instead of some trinket I'll forget who gave it to me. He did the same for Christmas. Got me the kerosene lamp I've been needing. Like I said, it's not diamonds and flowers, but it proves he actually listens to me and I feel loved!
