Another Valentine's Day has rolled around. Hope you're feeling the love from your loved ones today.
I woke up this morning to a box of Chocolate Covered Cherries [my favorite candy] and a beautiful card from my hubby. [The flowers in the background are from my birthday over a week ago and they're still beautiful.]
Below is my hubby's and my first Valentine's Day picture taken in 1963. I was in the 10th grade and he was in the 11th - just kids! He brought me a dozen long-stemmed red roses.
Valentine's Day 2020. What a difference 57 years makes - no resemblance whatsoever! ;-)
~ We had a great dinner at Carrabbas ~
Can you believe the size of this slice of cannoli cake for two. It was almost a quarter of a cake! We brought most of it home to savor tomorrow.
Last year on this day, at 11:00 a.m., we were celebrating the marriage of Dave and Lori [our daughter]. The wedding ceremony was at our house. Happy first anniversary, Dave and Lori! I baked them a carrot cake. It's Dave's favorite cake and what I made for the luncheon following their ceremony.
Lori went to visit her daughter, Tiffany, and her two sweet little granddaughters, Evie and Juliette, this week, and I sent a little Valentine's package with her for the little girls. Lori texted some pics after the girls opened the package. As a last minute thought I bought a fun Valentine headband to stick in the package and I think the girls liked it.
Tiffany sent me two pics taken today of Evie and Juliette wearing the outfits I sent. Aren't the girls precious!
Love my daughter, two daughters-in-law, six granddaughters, one granddaughter-in-law, and two great-granddaughters! [Not to exclude my two sons, one son-in-law, two grandsons and one grandson-in-law.]
Our son, Jeremy, took his little sweetheart, Ellie, to the Daddy/Daughter dance last Saturday.
A surprise package arrived in the mail a couple of days ago from a sweet lady who follows my blog in Fort Worth, Texas. She recently visited Chip & Joanna Gaines restaurant in Waco, Texas and bought me a tea towel to add to my collection. Thank you, Frieda!
Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day and heartfelt thanks for taking the time to be a supportive reader of my blog. Love and hugs to all!
