Kathi here.

I have heard it said many times that it's the little things that count. I'm not sure I totally agree with that statement, but I do know that the little things make a big difference.

My Jim does big and little things for me all the time.

I work in a tax office on the weekends during tax season. Our favorite garden center, O'Toole's, was having a nice giveaway on the last weekend of the season. I wasn't able to go because I was working, BUT my sweet husband went for me.

O'Toole's was giving away a free flat of pansies to anyone who came to their event dressed for "flower power." Jim put on his tie-dyed shirt, sunglasses, sandals, and headband and went to the event. It was not warm and the wind was chilly, and he stood there waiting for the giveaway to begin.

Thanks to my sweet man, I have pansies planted in two large round planters and one really big rectangular planter. I did not know how many pansies there would be! They look really nice and I love how hardy they are in our unpredictable spring weather.

This picture shows what he kinda looked like on the day he got my flowers.

Thank you, Jim. You are the BEST!
