This one is special to me

I just came across Reina's giveaway, if you don't know who she is then get over to her blog and check her out because she is super sweet & she is having one heck of a giveaway right now! There are several prizes to be won but one in particular that I am dying to have. It's a 12x12 canvas print of a photo of your choice from My Fine Art and I would absolutely LOOOVE to have this one printed...


It was a very special day it was the day after Christmas believe it or not (that's Texas for you) and he flew in the night before and showed up on my doorstep to surprise me. I was still living in Texas at the time and he had already been stationed in VA. I was so sad because I thought he wouldn't be there & having him show up was the most amazing gift ever. He showed up with roses, gifts, and poems he had written for me. He stayed for an entire week and it was absolutely amazing, I had never had anyone do something like for me before. He told EVERYONE he was coming my boss knew, my parents knew, everyone but me, I don't know how they managed to keep it a secret. I remember Christmas day I was leaving work and I was so sad, my boss asked me what was wrong and I told him I missed my husband and I wished he was there, all he said was "Miracles Happen on Christmas." Later that night I was sitting in my room working on our scrapbook adding a Christmas page even though we weren't together, and he called me. he started reading me a poem & my dog started barking, then someone knocked on my door and I got scared. I opened and I was so shocked I just started crying and I couldn't even speak! I hugged him for what felt like forever, and made sure he knew he was the best thing that ever happened to me.

So this is one of my favorite photos it's very special to me & always makes me smile. I would LOVE to have it printed and hanging in our home so that anytime I am down It would be right there reminding me of the happiness he has brought to my life.
