Valentines Day

After years of saying, "honey, don't get me anything for Valentine's day, our anniversary, blah blah, my birthday," I finally put my foot down and said ENOUGH...we need to start getting gifts again for each other.

The kids are grown and it's time to actually enjoy being just a couple, never had much of that. My husband and I got reacquainted, after years past our high school days in the 70's, in October of 1994. We got married on April 1st 1995, bring together this group. We spent years raising these kids and neglected our own happy events, usually saying "glad your mine, glad we made it, glad we still have us after all these years...and kids!"

For my gift I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers...hubby was made a dinner of filet, scallops, lobster tail and strawberry cheesecake.

Hope you all had a LOVE filled day!

How wonderful that you finally spoke up, wonderful that you realized you and hubby count too. So many people, after being married for years feel sad, believing romance has gone out the wondow. truth is, it hasn't! It just gets buried under life's stuff: kids, ilness, jobs, stress, etc. I hope every holiday finds the two of you doing something special together.
