Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: Postcards for Love

"My husband & I moved to a small town many years ago to raise our family. It's a safe place that seems to have been forgotten by the outside world. Nothing ever happens here, which is a good and bad thing I suppose.

One day I received in the mail a postcard of Miami Beach. On the back, it read "Thinking of you here". Nothing else. Without further thought, I tossed it in the recycling bin.

The following week another anonymous postcard arrived. A photo of Cape Canaveral again with writing that said, "Thinking of you here, too." Again, it ended up in the garbage.

Over the next few weeks, more postcards arrived, showing exotic Florida locations. I was angered because I thought it was pretty manipulative advertising, but at the same time I couldn't help but read each postcard and picture myself there.

And then a special delivery arrived. As I signed for it, the post lady handed me a thick envelope sent from my husband. Confused, I opened it to find brochures and plane tickets to Florida! I've always wanted to take a big trip but my husband and I just never seemed to get away. I guess he wasn't ignoring me all these years, just preparing to surprise me! "
