A Man and Love...

Hi sweet friends!

My Valentines Day gift to you is this true story, from our home to yours.  I hope it starts your day off with a smile:)

Fall 2011...

Mr. Sweet came in one day with something behind his back and a smirk on his face, a.g.a.i.n.

My mind went berserk, you know the feeling ~ that very brief moment when visions of chocolatey sweets, flowers, perfume, sparkling jewels and tickets to France flash in a nanosecond before your eyes, you start to swoon, your heart flutters...

Then you blink and there you are ~ back to reality... standing at the kitchen sink, your hands sore and chaffed from dirty dishwater, your old and faithful apron a little snugger than need be.

Your husband gently pulls this from behind his back, he is positively beaming as he proudly explains he found it in a rock pile... and thought of you.

he's a man... all man... my man... France can wait, just sayin':)

Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day filled with sweet memories and the gift of Love...

Tootles, Sue
