San Antonio Surprises

A few weeks ago J went to a conference in San Antonio. He said he couldn't stop thinking about me while he was there because there were so many Hispanics! Ha! When he came back, he gave me a couple surprise gifts from his trip.

One was a beautiful cross for our home. Back in 2009 I had gone on a girls trip to San Antonio. My sister and I shopped around at the local markets. We really felt our inner Latinas that weekend! And through all the shops we searched, I couldn't find a cross that I thought my husband could deal with. They were all a little too much, kind of like in the movie "Fools Rush In" if you have ever seen it. Knowing this story, when J was in Texas instead of picking out something he liked, which probably would be nothing at all, he picked out a cross he thought I would like instead. And I do, I LOVE it!
The photo makes it look more green than it actually is, probably having to do with the fact that I took the photo after hanging it. The colors are really close to our wedding colors. And it makes me smile every time I see it.
