“Do something incredible for Morgs”

For me, and this big, beautiful crazy life that I lead there are a few certain things that are just matter o’ fact, no doubt about it, u.n.d.e.n.i.a.b.l.e. Want to know what they are? Well, it’s that; 
1. I love to set Goals, and;
2. I love Morgan.
Of course, there a million (x infinity) and one other things to me that make me, well, me but those two fundamental things alone fill a lot of my heart and mind. 
It’s hard to explain the love and appreciation I have for Morgs. He really is just ‘that guy’. His the guy who will be my strength when I need it most, and the guy who never needs to be told or asked to do anything, ever, he just knows and will always be looking out for everybody, especially me (& my family). His always that guy. So when I compiled my list of 25 things I wanted to do before 25 I knew I had to put on there to do something incredible for him. 
I had SO much fun planning & scheming what to do for him and when I came up with the final idea I knew that was the winner. We were just about to embark on our trip of a lifetime so I didn’t want it to related to travel – as what could top that trip. I also didn’t want to do anything that I would have adored as well as I really wanted it to be as much for him and just him as possible.
SO what did he end up getting? 
A day of his favourite things of course! 
I went with a treasure hunt of his favourite things spanning over 24 hours starting with a letter explaining just what he was about to embark on, which was a LOT of surprises. The most fun part about it all for me was that Morgs had ab-so-lutley no idea it was coming, nor managed to guess any of the hints that I had written out and sealed, that he would be handed before each surprise. 
We had the best day laughing together and immersing ourselves in his favourite things (like restaurants for brekky, lunch and dinner, a very fancy hotel, time zone, la prem movies and lots more) and I have promised myself to make sure I do things like this for him a lot more often. 
Your turn.
What do you do for your partner to show how much you love & appreciate them? Cook their favourite meal when they least expect it? Let them have boys nights out more often than most? I’d love to hear your own stories in the comments section below.

    That is so super sweet! it is key to know each other and what you want, need and like from one another. Love is basically what keeps us happy in the end. xo

      It sure does lovely – we always say as much as we love and honour our independence & other aspects of our life, we wouldn’t know what to do without each other 🙂 x x

    Hi Anna, you are without any doubt the best girlfriend and the day sounds and looks like the best of fun 😉 I don´t do such big gestures. You know all guys love to eat I think so sometimes I get a take out from our favorite Chinese bistro for him or buy him a packet of coffee beans covered in dark chocolate just because I felt like it (without being his birthday or any other important day). But I would like to plan a trip on his motorbike somewhere we could spend the night in a small and cosy hotel without him knowing.
    PS: I send you an e-mail on your blog address. Please, let me know if you´ve received it. Thank you 😉
    xx Eve.h

      Ooooo I think Morgs might disagree with you there, I can still be a moody and impossible girlfriend too :)! haha But you are so sweet all the same. The thing about gestures of love are they just need to be thoughtful so I think smaller gestures like favourite food and ‘just because’ presents are as powerful and sweet as the bigger ones. I think that planning a trip on his motorbike somewhere would blow him away though 🙂 xx
