My husband is not very good at compliments. He gives them out only occasionally and if I probe for one, he never gives in - he says it's his way of making sure the ones he does give mean something. It's more than a little irritating, but also a little endearing.
This morning I walked into his office and while chatting made a comment about the pants I was wearing being too big. He said "well yeah, you're getting smaller." I laughed and said I thought he hadn't noticed and he responded "What do you mean I haven't noticed? I've noticed - is your wedding dress too big now?"
Considering my next mini goal is for my wedding dress to be too big (I'm a little over five pounds away from that goal) and I hadn't even told him that, I was pretty much beaming from his comment. It probably doesn't sound like much, but to know that he's noticing means so much to me. I figured since he saw me everyday he wouldn't really see the changes for quite a while longer, and I'm beyond happy that he already has.
Sorry to ramble - I just wanted to share my giddiness!
