{It's the Little Things // Heart Shaped Rock}

Nathan and I went out this past weekend for a date on Saturday {post on that coming} to celebrate our 9th year wedding anniversary. We went to a town about an hour and 15 minutes away and walked the town square and had lunch. While we were in one of the boutiques Nathan found a basket full of heart shaped rocks and suggested that we get one for Mason. His thoughts were that we could give it to him the night before Kindergarten and tell him that if he starts to miss us he can touch the heart in his pocket and know that we are always there with him. 

So we picked out the best one that we could find and brought it home. We gave it to him on Sunday and he LOVED it. He said "Awww, I love it!" Nathan and I both kissed the heart for him.

He put it in his pocket the morning of his first day and off we went. While in his classroom I was busy putting all of his supplies away and I didn't notice, but Nate said that Mason kept his hand in his pocket where that heart was. 

I melt.
