My Valentine!

Old-Photo-Romantic-Couple-GraphicsFairy Valentine’s Day has certainly evolved and changed since the days I was in grade school and everyone in the class got a Valentine’s Day cards.  In today’s world, Valentine’s Day has associated high and expensive expectations.  Some people will attach importance to spending hundreds of dollars on this “Holiday” but I’ve always been simple to please.  Call me a cheap date but a bouquet of red roses still works for me.  In the old days, delivering those flowers to the office got him bonus points and he was “rewarded” later. Vintage-Doily-Valentine-GraphicsFairy-1024x995 After 20 years of marriage, finding ways to make this day special can sometimes be a challenge.  We are not as mobile and free as we used to be since our daughter has severe Cerebral Palsy.  A nice quiet romantic dinner on V-Day doesn’t always work out for a variety of reasons, usually related to our daughter’s medical needs.  In these situations, we’ve learned how to adapt. We’ve been pretty creative in our celebrations, which don’t always fall on V-Day itself but close enough. Retro-Valentine-Telephone-Girl-2-GraphicsFairy When a couple’s life is complicated for any reason(s), finding moments to acknowledge each other’s love is a must.  The purpose of Valentine’s Day is to take the time to acknowledge your love for and appreciation of your significant other.  Be open to exploring new ways of expressing how much you love each other regardless of how crazy your life may be.  Be creative! Only you will know what that looks like and there are no secret recipes or instructions here.  However, in my book, a bouquet of red roses for her is always a good start… my Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day my Valentines!  I Love You!!!!!



Truer words were never spoken. It’s so easy to take our loved ones for granted, especially in difficult or stressful times. Thanks for the reminder for all of us!

That’s so sweet that your husband does that for you.

I’m the opposite way – the only time the Husband brought me roses for Valentine’s Day was the very first one we knew each other, and we weren’t even dating yet! He does always bring me a bouquet of flowers when our local Hospice has their annual flower sale – hospice helped when my grandpa was in his last days so it’s a fitting tribute to him.
