L Is For Love

And Mary had a little lamb that followed her everywhere... even school! I wonder if this is the same lamb.....
Another mystery I suppose.
Here is what is not a mystery, well, I suppose it sometimes can be, but it's much more than that.... it's love.

I am always a hopeless romantic. Especially during the month of February... the month of love.
Each day in February I give the hubster a valentine. This is a tradition I have done for years. Each year I spend hours trying to find enough Valentines to fill each day, and with just the right words to say. (If you are my friend, or follow me publicly on Facebook, you may have seen these Valentines. I have shared them with everyone else this year too!)
What I also did for the hubster, that Facebook won't be getting from me, is purchasing the tie... yeah a boring tie.... for our wedding day. We decided on Tiffany Blue as the color of the theme, to go with the white & black, so I purchased a silk tie in Tiffany blue for the big day. Hard to believe we have been together going on 14 years and still not married legally, but we will be, no rush.... lol...
This is a photo from the shop where I bought it.
Check them out on Etsy!
It is the exact color that his tie, his best man's boutonniere, and my maid-of-honor's dress will be. There won't be any other party members to worry about coordinating with.
I also got the hubster a lovey-dovey box of Lindt chocolates. It is one of the things I always request, so I figured I would return the favor.
Lastly, I made his card.
Yup. It's not that I am cheap, but you can't find what I wanted to say on ANY Hallmark card. You won't find it on any card for that matter..... except mine!
If you know what MILF means than you can figure out DILF. If you don't, sorry, but I'm not saying it on here so Google it.  :-)
Lastly, when it gets closer to the big V-Day, I'm going to go and get my hubster one long stem red rose. Yup. Believe or not some men appreciate roses too.
Anyway, that's the hopeless romantic at work..... I may leave a love poem or sing a song and send to his text.... you just never know what I may do with love hangin' in the air.

What about you? Are you the romantic and do crazy-in-love things, or do you prefer to be spoiled?? Any plans???

  1. Wow, you guys have been together 14-years and you're now getting hitched? That's amazing news! Well...congrats! This is really exciting. Our wedding color was a soft blue. You know the color blue you would find in the late 70s. lol This year we will kick off our 35th anniversary. The years really have a way of getting away from you. Now, I just love the idea of giving a Valentine's each day and home-made ones are the best. I may have to try to do this next year, since I pretty much can't do that this year. Of course, I did make hand-create one for DH using one of my many rubber-stamps. I probably will share that on my blog soon. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Valentine's Day is a double whammy in this house, because it is also my husband's birthday!! We always give each other cards, but he gets two or three (depending on what our dog children come up with). We always have a nice dinner out that night (his Valentine's gift to me).

  3. I like your lovely L post! Sometimes testing the waters is the thing to do. My hubby and I waited about 8 years before we finally said I do!

  4. Homemade cards are often best. I have (great) trouble finding an already-made that I like. I usually make a card out of a photo I've taken of a favorite place we've traveled to.
    February is the month of our wedding anniversary (and my birthday and our first born's).

  5. Valentine's Day is always a favorite of mine. I like to prepare a romantic dinner for two with whatever surprises happen our way.

    Your posts are always inspiring.

  7. I like the little things that Mr. Jenny and I do for each other...

    Sometimes I will leave little notes laying on his desk, so when he looks at them he knows I love him!

    Lovely post for the letter "L".

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
