I Love!

(Mary Englebreit)

I think Valentine's Day takes on a different tone as you get older and have been married happily to the same person for over 31 years.  We don't buy gifts for each other on this day.  We didn't even buy cards for each other this year.  It can just be a waste of money if you're just trying to come up with something at the last minute just because Hallmark says you need to.

We just love that we are home together. ( I got home last night from Spokane.  I'll have to write about the trip tomorrow.)   I  Love being home. We allowed each other to sleep in this morning since we didn't get to bed until late.  Then first thing today we promised  to be nice to each other all day!  How's that for a Valentine's gift!?  It doesn't sound so good writing it, but I have to say, it was a nice gift to each other.  We can have a tendancy to pick at each other and get on each other's nerves since we work out of our home and we're together all day.  Today was nice.  I Love my Hubby!

My little babies were very happy to see me when they came with "daddy" to pick me up at the airport. I  Love my babies.

I Love my morning coffee in my "Love you, kiss, kiss"  mug.

I Love to look outside and see the red cardinal that shows up every morning for breakfast.

I Love my family, friends and all my blog followers. 

I Love my life!!

Hi my Friend, Happy you made it home safely! We had a simple Valentine's Day too! Marc asked me if I wanted to go out to Dinner and I said let's just grab a salad and bring it home! That is exactly what we did:) It was a great day! Have a wonderful Valentine's evening, HUGS!

Aaw Nina, that's a love-ly post.

We don't exchange cards or gifts on Valentines Day. In fact I'm not sure Hubs even knew what the day was... but that doesn't matter 'cause he loves me every day of the year. I came across a 32year old love letter today. It was full of love and promises for the future... all of which he has kept.
