Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Valentines Day.   My day was wonderful.  Sam loves giving cards and for that reason, I can always expect 3 or 4 different cards which he places all around the house....    He is such a sweetheart.   

This year.....he placed a little "CASH" in each card!!  Woo great for me!   Trista and I are planning a trip to go visit our "Airman" during Spring Break, and this cash will certainly come in handy for all of the great things we are planning to do.  

Many years ago, we owned a flower shop and I so enjoyed making flower arrangements for Valentines.   It was so fun watching the guys as they would come in and try to figure out what to buy for their lady.   Most of them had no clue and just wanted me to make a vase with flowers in it!  LOL.

For my valentine, I bought him an EXTRA LARGE card and then a card that plays music.   He really got a kick out of both of these.

I have to tell you about my craziness yesterday....   I drove to Tyler to purchase a gift for my niece.   She turned 42 yesterday!
On my way home, I pretty sure that I was the one driving since I didn't see anyone else in the car with me........but somehow, I made a turn that I didn't even realize I had made.   

It was only after I had already pulled in to the Nursing Home parking lot, that I realized that I was heading to visit my dad.   I have gone there everyday for the past 2 years and without even paying attention.....I just pulled right in.    Isn't it odd how we get so use to doing something, that we do it unintentionally?   Oh well....

Blessings to each

Gosh...when you look around at the landscape here in our makes it hard to believe that it is February.  It seems more like April.        Check out my Carolina Jasmine...   

gorgeous yellow blooms.....everywhere.

This is the usual time for the daffodils to bloom and this year...mine are really beautiful.  

At the end of the blooming season this year, I'm going to have to dig them up and replant them.   When Sam built our new fence (which I love) he built it about 2 feet inside the property line, which means that they are only seen if I go back behind this fence!  :(

I'm all ready for valentines about the rest of you?

Sam and I went out to eat this past Saturday......We both knew that the restaurants would be so crowded on Valentines day, so we celebrated a little early.   I had been craving "Olive Garden" and my love took me there.     I ordered eggplant parmesan and it was
sooo good!  This is my all time favorite dish.  

My precious niece has a birthday tomorrow....on Valentines Day!
She will be 42 ...... so hard to believe.

It is very hard to share a birthday with a day like Valentines day.   Everyone is so busy with their sweethearts and it makes it hard to celebrate on that day.  

We usually have to choose a day before or after the 14th, to celebrate her big day...

This month is moving right along.......which means it's almost time to put out the shamrocks!!

Hope you all have a Blessed day..
