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

I am glad you two lovebirds had a romantic week. The card in your header is adorable! I am so sorry about your dad, and I know you must still be grieving. I think we never get over it when our parents die, we just learn to adjust better as time goes on.

You and Sam sound like a perfect match. Glad you had a great Valentine's Day. It is funny how we become so conditioned to routines in life. Prayers.

I can relate to your trip to the Nursing home.No,I never actually went to the home my Dad was in, after her passed away, but each Sunday I thought we should head over there, because that's what we always and memories live on.

Hi Shug!

What a great Valentines Day you had! I love it when those sweet little traditions just carry out through the years! Happy shopping to you!

I am so sorry to hear about your father's passing. I know how you feel though, I would be so happy if my sweet mother could just go home, peacefully, to be with those she misses so dearly. It truly is sweet sorrow. Blessings to you and your family, because I know it is so very hard, and we miss them...but we know where they are, and the joy they are experiencing!

We lost our best friend 2 weeks ago, and I am so sad, but so happy at the same time. I know he is just fine, and so happy to be with those he loved and lost.

Hugs and Love to you sweet friend.

We enjoyed Valentine's WEEK in Arkansas ---at our little romantic cabin on top of the mountain.... Hope you viewed all of the little videos I put on FB during that visit... I love making little videos ---but laugh at my crazy, southern drawl on the videos... ha ha

Glad you are going to visit your grandson during Spring Break. You will love it.
