Happy February, all!
Oh, February 1st is one of my favorite days. Why? Because it marks the start of my Valentine's Day excitement! Of course, Matt's birthday is the day BEFORE Valentine's Day so he gets the better end of the deal...but hey, I do so love getting him gifts!
This year, he turns the B.I.G 3-0. Old man. :-) (He sure did rob the cradle with me!) So far, he is handling it all very well. Of course, he has always been the one who has wanted to skip the younger adult years and head straight to the gray hair part...that way he would be respected and distinguished. I don't foresee his 'transition' to be anything but grateful for another year. But-one never knows the surprises of the future...he could have a pre-mid-life-crisis right on the heels of his 'anniversary.'
Someone once said, "Only the first is a birthday, all the rest are anniversaries." Don't remember who, but whoever it was...was a smart cookie.
Yesterday I did a bit to spruce up our home to get into the Valentine spirit. I posted some pictures below. AND I finished Corynn's valentine surprise-with pictures below. OF COURSE.
I told Matt last night that all I want for Valentine's Day is for him to write me a poem. He is a lovely poet but it has been a LOOOONNNGGGG time since I was awarded one. Of course, He has been sick for the last few days and was practically comatose when I was talking to him.
I also told him about my most romantic (and desired) wish. I think my most romantic and wonderful surprise would be for Matt to take a photo of my bridal bouquet back to the florist who made it and have them make me an exact replica for me to enjoy. Of course, it would be even more wonderful if it was preserved in silicone or something so I could see it EVERY day. Not holding my breath on that one, either. :-)
What is the most romantic thing that YOUR husband's could do for you? Not just for Valentine's day, but WHENEVER???
