This is a marvelous post. I think you are going to do them all. Your big, full, loving heart will have you going and going and going.

Oh, my yes, Katie. I am hopelessly devoted to Jud. Thirty-seven years. I never imagined I would even have the capability to love someone that long but he is a dear, dear man.

I got him a sack of the best chocolates I could find. They are just for him. No one is allowed in his stash. After I got them, I found out that he will be diabetic if he indeed, qualifies for surgery (our prayer). Our minister was there when I thought of this. She has a brother who has been diabetic since the age of six and she said, "Even diabetics can have treats every once in awhile if they are careful!"

My biggest treat...having him here beside me!

Thank you so much for the angel, Katie. I was so thrilled. You will be getting a thank you note but I am a little slow these days!

Love and hugs,
Suz

I'm left with strong memories of the subject of my devotion. I love the hearts dripping down the page. It made me smile. :D

Here in Australia Valentine's day was today. Chocolate dipped strawberries for breakfast (along with porridge for THE MAN, ugh!) out to lunch at a favourite restaurant, dinner was fresh fruit salad with home made icecream (too full after lunch for anything else).
Katie please visit my OWOH post if you have time. It was your post last year that made me determined to be a giver this year.

Oh Kate, what fabulous ideas!! The year after we were married, living in my husband's TINY bachelor pad:), I woke up an hour after he'd gone to work and when I opened the door I was surrounded by hundreds of huge paper hearts that he'd cut out and taped on every available surface... ahhh, maybe nothing that extravagant but you've got my creativity stirred.
I hope you have as wonderful a day as you deserve, i.e, the BEST!

I have a feeling if you don't do all of those things, you did most! (And love that Audrey photo!)

Each year I make Rick a poetry year book with photos or drawings representing our year. It's always one of my favorite things -- and his too! (And of course heart-shaped anything that one can cook!)
