my dutch boy and our son just returned home from a two week trip to japan. they love to travel there and have made several trips over the past ten years. one year he brought back a simply beautiful heart necklace that has a gorgeous mikimoto pearl dangling from it. he knew that i would love it and he was right! this year he came home with this little treasure: three absolutely adorable rubber stamps. and i must admit that i love these stamps as much as i love my necklace! but, what i'm really loving is the message: this guy knows me...and he knows me well! i would give a week's supply of chocolate to have seen him in a stamp store, in the middle of tokyo, trying to choose the perfect stamps! after twenty-four years of marriage, my little dutch boy still manages to truly surprise, and totally inspire me!
