Now this is true love. My man loves him some meatloaf. We have been married going on 6 years now and I have yet to make it. (It is sooo not my favorite) Well, I got to thinking a couple weeks ago after Landon had done one thoughtful thing after another for me that I would finally break down and make him the BEST meatloaf he has ever had. So, I reveiwed recipes for two weeks and finally found the perfect one! A mixture of fresh ground sirloin from the local butcher shop and many other yummy things. I just knew it would be good...and it WAS! Such a huge hit. I didn't have to say much while making dinner Landon was just thankful for a hot meal. Once he realized it was meatloaf his sweet eyes lit up like I had just given him a week long hunting trip in the rockies. He gave me a hug and said, " I know that you did that just for me" He then scooped the boys up and took them out fishing. While I finished up dinner I couldn't help but think about how much I adored him. And all I did was make some meatloaf..I mean really? That is all it takes? This reminds me that its not about the big things here and there but about the everyday little things that keep me loving him more and more each day. I am writing this so that one day he can look back and not really even remember the dinner I cooked but that 6 years into our marriage I loved him more than I could have ever imagined. I wouldn't be able to write about my precious boys if they didn't have a sweet daddy like Landon.
So honey...this means many more meals of meatloaf and many more years of "little things".
