Happy Valentines' Day! I usually find some fancy-pants card for my sweetie, but this year I found a little card that simply says it all. It's so cute I can't stand it! It is from Sugarboo Designs, Inc.
This is such a sweet little day with a wonderful tradition of showering the people you love with love. I think the secret to a long and happy marriage is remembering to show your special someone, everyday, in some little way, that they are loved and are special to you. Sometimes that's hard; the days go by so fast and we get caught up in deadlines and laundry, but a sign of love is the glue that holds everything together. What I have learned in 27 years of marriage it that when I make the time and effort to do something sweet for my sweetie, it comes back to me 10 fold. It took about 20 years to figure that one out. A little note on a chalkboard and as if by magic he walks through the door with a dozen roses! I try not to abuse this power. Then again, I think he has caught on to this phenomenon and figured out that it works both ways. Those dozen roses .... make him happy too : )
