Joe and I had a date night on Saturday, and I was reminded of yet another reason why I'm marrying this amazing man. He planned this date night all on his own. We had been looking forward to it all week long. Joe actually managed to keep all of the details of our date night a surprise, which is a major accomplishment for Mr. Joe Joe. He kept all of the details super top secret, which was fun. Well, Saturday finally gets here. I ran around with my mom and sister and did a little shopping, which was fun. I was looking for boots for date night, but just couldn't find any that I liked. So, I came home to figure out what I was going to wear. I started scrambling around and just couldn't find anything. Girls, you know what I'm talking about. It was quickly turning into one of those situations where NOTHING looks the way you want it to look. With the help of mom and Mal, I finally found an outfit that was acceptable, but now, I was running late. If you know me, you know that I love being on time. Actually, I love being early. I am not a late person. I just don't like the way it makes me feel when I get in the car to go somewhere, and I know I'm going to be late. So, I call Joe to let him know. I'm frustrated, and feeling down about the whole situation. Joe reassures me that everything will be fine, and that we're going to have a great night. Then, a few minutes later, Joe calls me back. He tells me that he has called the restaurant to let them know that we may be a few minutes late, and he wanted to make sure that was ok. They of course said it would be just fine.
It might seem like a simple story, but I was totally taken aback by it. The fact that he realized this was truly stressing me out, and he came up with a quick solution was so sweet to me. I love how thoughtful Joe is. I was instantly reminded how lucky I am to have someone so considerate in my life. I truly cannot wait to call him my husband.
