Last January when The Shape of Water was released in the Movie Theater near our home I bought tickets for my husband and I, and even when he had some reservations about the movie he ended up loving it as much as I did (he was happy Guillermo del Toro won the Oscar).
When I found out they were releasing the book (written by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus) I immediately put it on my Wish List. Today we celebrated an special occasion and my husband arrived home with a surprise for me:
Earlier today my husband sent me a message saying he was going to be a little late because of work, the truth is that he went to Barnes and Noble (even when he isn’t a fan of shopping in that store and when he goes he is “in and out” really quickly), but today he spent over an hour looking around the store, reading synopsis and reviews to choose the books he was going to give me as a gift.
I loved the books he brought me, but what I love even more is:
- He knows me well and knows how much I love reading, so books is a great gift option for me.
- He spent time doing something he doesn’t particularly like (shopping in a Bookstore) just to make me happy.
- He pays attention and he remembered that I wanted The Shape of Water book.
- He brought and extra book because, in his words “I know you love YA books”, and that’s true, is actually my favorite genre.
So, besides sharing with you the newer additions to my Library I also want to share my appreciation and love for the wonderful man that is my husband.
“Connecting with those you know love, like and appreciate you restores the spirit and give you energy to keep moving forward in this life.”
