Now That's Love

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

This post is about a towel. My towel. I bought it and one other the week before heading off to college from Linen's and Things, which is no longer open in Minnesota. It's one of those fabulous towel blankets and literally falls past my knees when I wrap it around. I love my towel. It's worn just right, gets me dry in a jiffy and keeps me warm while I'm getting ready for the day.

Tony also loves my towel. Or at least he does when he's forgotten to grab his own. I don't know how it works in your house, but Tony leaves the bathroom with the towel on continually leaving himself in the position of needing a towel in the bathroom. Mine stays put. Additionally, Tony showers at night, while I shower in the morning.

These two situations create problems when Tony uses my towel, because a) it usually doesn't find it's way back to the bathroom, leaving me toweless or b) there hasn't been enough time between Tony using it the previous night to my morning shower for it to dry completely.

I've been known to get just a titch out of line when my towel is unavailable or sopping wet. You can imagine my sweet surprise this morning when I was greeted by this:

He'd mentioned that he'd used my towel and placed it in the wash, but he had the foresight to take it out of the dryer and bring it upstairs for me! I was completely smitten.

Of course I laughed when underneath the sign I found another copy, "Good morning! Towels in the dryer!" Clearly bringing it up was the better choice. :)

Ok, this is probably my favorite blog post ever from anyone! I have the same thing with my husband..he always steals my towel and I also get a touch edgy when he does this. This just made my heart melt. Thank you so much for sharing!

Haha so cute. Love this story! Particularly the amusing ending. My other half turned up on my doorstep before I left for work this morning with a decaf vanilla latte and a chocolate chip muffin. Like you, I was smitten :)

Already mentioned here, but it really is the little things (at least to me) that matter the most. How sweet and what a way to brighten your morning :)

We've had a heck of a time finding towels that my husband likes which makes me curious about your towel. Sounds like something my husband needs to try!

Glad he washed and dried it for you! So nice!

We have the SAME towel issue, lol! I love the two versions of the notes, and clearly Tony made the right choice between the two!

The small things are the sweetest! :)

Okay I have a question for you. Do you have a preferred camera bag? I'm on the hunt for one that's not too stuff, that will protect my new camera, but still has room for personal items like my wallet and phone. Any suggestions?!
