SOMETIMES...LESS IS MORE



We just recently celebrated my husband Patrick's birthday and this year we had to decide what gift to give a man that has everything.... We thought about new Golf clubs but with the demands of his job, he is barely on the range anymore.


THAT GIFT WOULD BE TO MUCH!!





Next we thought about getting him a new computer but quickly decided against that decision when we caught him talking to his old computer. (smile)


My husband is a man that will not throw anything away.








His computer is crying out for retirement and he still continues to use a computer straight from the stone ages...


THAT GIFT WOULD BE TO MUCH!!




Finally we decided to get him something we knew he would love....A custom box to hold some of his Navy Coins.
He loves that gift and from time to time I catch him playing with the coins like a child at a candy store.







THE PERFECT GIFT FOR MY HUSBAND
The surprise on his face and the pure joy I witnessed with his smile made me feel really good about our decision that LESS IS MORE.







THANKFUL FOR MY HUSBAND PATRICK

  1. I am so grateful for the time I have RIGHT NOW. I try really hard to tell the people around me how much I love and appreciate them. My husband is easy to please because he insists that we not get him anything. BI would love to hear stories of some of the gifts you have given someone you care about. Enjoy this beautiful day!
