Sweet Love ~

A message to my loves ~

I'm a big fan of love, hugs & kisses, and all things sweet, sentimental & romantic ~ they're the best!

...aren't they just too cute

Lately we have a lot of {new} young love here, with both girls ~ I love all the life and joy they bring into our home.
It's reminded me of our first Valentine's Day...the day he carried a giant card under his puffy down jacket, all over town, only to give it to me at the end of our "date" (we were 16.) It makes me smile to remember that day. We do love when they do goofy things for love, don't we!?

The girls have been filled with anticipation over Valentines Day. It's no wonder why some guys aren't big fans...if only they knew, it's all the little moments and sweet sentiments that will be treasured. The Little One's friend gave her a teddy bear and made her a card from red & green felt ~ too cute...and Big Girl's friend gave her roses (which Smoochie loves to eat - just roses for some reason, and note to sender...he prefers pink) chocolates, a teddy bear, and dinner ~ he's clearly smitten and trying very hard to woo her! Do people even say that anymore?

I whisked hubby out of town for a much needed getaway ~ that man will not stop working if I don't extract him from the premises. He put up a little fuss when I told him "surprise" our bags are packed ~ let's go! Here's the plaque that was on the old inn we stayed at ~ Valentine Hill, how perfect

So glad Valentine's Day fell on a Sunday, so hopeless romantics {like me} could celebrate all weekend!
