It's not a holiday I usually go all out for - we normally go out for dinner ( or not ) see a movie (or not)
John always buys me a card and flowers ( or not ) I make a special dessert ( or not )
It's pretty much hit and miss.
But this year I decided John wanted to buy me a dozen pink roses
And when I saw how much joy it brought him to do so - I decided to buy HIM some of my favorite flowers as well !
Then I found these chocolate covered chips - oh my gosh - I HAD to have them and so I bought them for John ( sweet - salty - chocolaty heaven )
I bought him one of these ( on special ) also - just because
John says - What did you get me for Valentine's day?
Suzan says - WHAT DID I GET YOU ? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
John says - Well besides a white artichoke .................
Suzan says- Well ! If you don't like the white artichoke we'll call it mine - I love it
John says - Well that was the plan all along........
John says - Where are those chocolate chips you bought?
Suzan says - Oh - please don't eat them all - I really think I'm going to love them !
John says - So what did you get me for Valentine's day?
Suzan says - FLOWERS ! I bought you flowers - you don't sound very appreciative you know !
Later John put his coat on................
Suzan says - Where are you going?
John says - To the golf store
Suzan says - WHY?
John says - There was something there I know you wanted to get me.................
You see ?
After awhile you really DO know what each other wants without asking !
Have a wonderful weekend everyone -
CELEBRATE - even if your sweetheart is a furbaby - or your kids - or your parents - or a good book take some time to celebrate.
Sometimes the best goodies are the ones we buy ourselves - ( chocolate covered chips perhaps? )
And in my humble opinion Valentine's day is not about LOVERS - it's about LOVE.
Which I'm sending to all of you
