Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! The perfect day to be lovey-dovey and mushy with our sweethearts….and eat as much chocolate as we want, lol! Love it 🙂

Looking forward to going to the boys school for Valentine Parties today and watching them be uncomfortable giving the girls in their class a Valentine, haha!

Looking forward to a date with my hubby Friday night. Doing dinner and a movie with friends. Dragging the guys to see Safe Haven, CANNOT wait to see it.

Have you read this Valentine Story that went viral yesterday on Twitter?! I posted it on Facebook after I was a blubbering mess reading it….

Here’s her letter by Sue Johnston, 68 via Huffington Post:

“My sweet husband, John, and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine’s Day, he’d send me the most beautiful flowers containing a note with five simple words: ‘My love for you grows.’

Four children, 46 bouquets and a lifetime of love were his legacy to me when he passed away two years ago.On my first Valentine’s Day alone, 10 months after I lost him, I was shocked to receive a gorgeous bouquet addressed to me..from John.

Angry and heartbroken, I called the florist to say there had been a mistake. The florist replied, ‘No, ma’am, it’s not a mistake. Before he passed away, your husband prepaid for many years and asked us to guarantee that you’d continue getting bouquets every Valentine’s Day.’

With my heart in my throat, I hung up the phone and read the attached card. It said, ‘My love for you is eternal.'”


How wonderful is this?! I still tear up and I’ve read it a dozen times already. Goodness!
