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… 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.
