Valentine Berries and Flowers

What a fun surprise yesterday afternoon - my beloved came home bearing gifts!!! 


I confess that I adore fresh flowers.  I know they die quickly, too expensive, so on and so forth.  But every time I walk in this room and see them I smile.  I love the way they smell and I love the deep red color. 



I also love that he knows me well enough that he started taking pictures of the flowers for me.  That’s some true love right there!



He also brought these beauties home – and you might notice in the 1st picture there are only 2 on the plate.  Yeah…   Smile   It was a gorgeous afternoon here, so we each took a strawberry and sat in the backyard.  Such a wonderful time sitting and talking together.

We did go out for dinner and had a nice time.  We had considered going to a movie dining theater, but there just wasn’t anything playing right now that we’re dying to see.

One last thought – so many people posted on FB yesterday about how it is a ‘made up’ holiday and they don’t need that just to show somebody they love them, that it should happen every day.  They are absolutely right!  But I also don’t think it’s a bad thing to slow down one day a year and remind those you love how important they are to you.

I agree ... it's a made-up holiday, and I would rather have love shown in regular, every-day ways 365 days than have it all saved up for something special on just the one day. However, there's still nothing wrong with taking the opportunity to do something a little special on that one day. ;-)
