Happy Belated Valentine's Day
I know this is late but I still feel the love. This week had two special days for me. The first was my 28th wedding anniversary and of course the second was Valentine's Day. I wanted both days to be really special but they were subdued. Sadly hubby went to bed early and I sat up and knitted. He has been working some different hours this week. So we are looking forward to the weekend to do something different. I did manage to do this...
I know that the green crowns of the strawberries are dried out. I bought them a bit too early and then waited too long to dip them, but believe me-it didn't affect the taste one bit. We stood at the kitchen island before going to bed eating strawberries dipped in horribly cheap chocolate and enjoying every bite. There were no roses, no champagne, no high priced gifts, but love that was shown every day of this past year and 27 others before. While I love the idea of Valentine's Day, I know that I am loved every day when my bad foot gets rubbed, a fresh cup of coffee is poured and brought to me when I am pinned in by three dogs sitting in my lap while knitting, and by just by being present in the smallest of moments every day.
I love you honey. Thank you for 28 wonderful years! You still make the best cup of Saturday morning coffee I have ever had.
