Rolls over and hugs me in the middle of the night. Or kisses my cheek. Also, sometimes he cleans my car or the house without me asking him. It’s SO nice to come home to that!

He stays up late to clean the house after I go to bed when he knows I don’t feel like doing it, so when I wake up in the morning I wake up to a clean house.  It makes my heart smile.  πŸ™‚

He makes my lunch and dinner every day during the week! He even measures the portions for me, because I am working out hard and tracking everything I eat.

He leaves silly notes for me in our bedroom, and I find them randomly πŸ™‚

He gives me foot massages when we are watching tv at  night

Love him πŸ™‚

Awww… What a great thread!!!  

Mine texts me throughout the day sending me kisses & love messages. I love it!!! 

He’s also my snuggle bug when sitting on the couch at night & I’ve felt him cover me with blankets in the middle of the night.  : )

He does a million tiny things. But at night he always goes to sleep well before me (I’m in school- lots of hw). When I finally get to bed, he’ll reach out for me in his sleep and make this happy noise and pull me to him and continue sleeping. It’s wonderful.

Those nights when I don’t get to sleep until 4-5 in the morning, he’ll usually padder out with this sleepy look on his face and tell me it’s time for bed. He waits for me to turn off the computer then takes me by the hand and walk me to bed, just to make sure I get some sleep.

So much!  The one that makes me smile the most is when he washes the bottom of my feet when we shower together, because in his old shower I used to slip ALL the time, so he takes care to get the soap off… such a little thing I love that he remembers.

He comes home with “no reason” flowers for me all the time because he knows I love them!

Things that he does without realizing they’re sweet….walks me to my car door when it’s icy, drives me/won’t let me drive in the rain or snow, calls me if I leave his house and I didn’t text him that I’m home safely in a matter of 10 minutes…when my old car broke down on my way up to Saratoga from Long Island, he left work immediately and drove his truck and trailer with his car on the trailer, and met me 3 1/2 hrs away to take my car home on his trailer, and give me his car, then drove home the same night..that was a biggie. He also always plays with my hair. πŸ™‚

Aww I love reading these!

My hubby makes my dinner for work every night, and puts in lots of snacks and just way more food than I could ever eat. He gets my work badge out, packs my bag for work, gets me my coat and starts my car for me πŸ™‚

I don’t think my feet have touched snow since I met him, he always plows the driveway and shovels a path for me before I go out to my car.

But I agree with PP’s… the half asleep middle of the night snuggles are the BEST!

Specifically, I had a really bad day yesterday…I couldn’t hold anything down, was super crampy, and had a horrible headache. Without me knowing, he grated some almonds into my favorite vanilla ice cream for me, and curled up with me to watch Community. 

He’s not really one for traditional romantic gestures (I think he’s given me flowers all of twice in the 5+ years we’ve been together), but he goes out of his way to make sure I’m comfortable and happy…like sewing up a rip in my favorite coat (he was a parachute rigger in the Army, and had to spend 3 weeks learning to use a sewing machine), or grating almonds into my ice cream, or driving to the 24-hr grocery store 20 minutes away to get me migraine medicine.

I lost my scarf the other day when we were on the side of the road.  He actually went and drove around looking for it, found it, washed it and gave it back to me. 

Yesterday I went to go get bloodwork done and the hospital is…. “special”. They stuck the needle in the valve in my vein, and it HURT but i sucked it up.  I now have a sexy big ass bruse the size of my fist on my arm.  They did not even give me a bandaid.  They gave me some tissues and scotch office tape. SERIOUSLY.
I then had to go get my oil changed before I went to work, and I called my Fiance to tell him of my adventure. 15 miniuts later he shows up at the car place with a box of bandaids and a box of chicken mc nuggets.

I love this thread! Great idea @zippylef:  Smile

SO is such a generous man. Some of the things I love the most about him… He makes my coffee on the weekend! And he makes the best coffee too…  I also love when I catch him randomly looking at me with admiring eyes.  Or when he kisses my forehead out of the blue.
