Today I Got a Back Rub.

Day 26 of the 30 Day Challenge:  A picture of something that means a lot to you.

(a lovely sunday nap, on my parents' sofa, 3 days before we got married)

The friendship and relationship I have with my husband means a TON to me. 

That's sounds so lame.  I don't have the eloquent words to express how much I value our marriage and companionship.  Just know that there is a lot of feeling behind those typical words and my lack of fanciful expression.

My husband is the best when it comes to many things, but back rubs are one of his specialities.  He gives them without ever being asked and never asks for one in return.  He's just so awesome like that.

He also helped me with a lot of housework this evening.  We've got family coming in from out of town next week and I've been trying to get things organized and cleaned up around here.  Nothing like the threat of company to get me to put on my house cleaning cap!  I really needed the help too.  After being out of commission for two months (1st trimester and thyroid blues), this place has gotten really outta control.  Tony is NOT a cleaner, housework type of guy (did any of you get lucky enough to find one who is?) so his assistance this evening was wonderful, pleasant surprise.

You two are so adorable. As far as husbands go, I'd have to say we both scored.

I got lucky I guess; Bret pitches in with housework ALL the time, but he's not in school right now. During his full-time school and work years, he never did housework. Sometimes it was hard. And when I was pregnant, he hardly ever made dinner even though I'd have to go throw up in between browning the ground beef. But when he's got nothing else to occupy his time and mind, he's awesome.
And man, I love the guy.

That's so sweet of your husband! My husband will sometimes clean on his own, if I ask he always is willing to help. But my favorite is when he is talking on the phone, he is a cleaning machine! He just talks and cleans and picks things up. I love it!

The picture is totally cute of the both of you together. It is also nice that you still have such deep feelings now and realize the importance of your relationship.

I "got lucky" in a lot of ways, but my husband is great with housework and I'm finally (oh, finally) learning to do the same.

Very nice! Those are the best aren't they? That is also very nice of your husband to help.
