“How many Valentine’s Days have we shared?” I ask Hubby.
His reply: “This will be our 36th.”
That’s a lot of love and a lot of loving.
We have boxes filled with mementos – cards, letters, notes – that we will probably never look at again.
This year we choose not to give the traditional card, or the obligatory love letter. This year, instead of throwing money away on things that will eventually be thrown away, we’re going to invest time in each other.
I’m a cheap date and Hubby knows it. I like nothing better than to sit across a table from him and hold hands while we share our thoughts and dreams over a “value tea” at Wendy’s.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweetheart! I love you!
