Tomorrow Dave and I will celebrate our 10th Valentine's day as a couple! Way back in 1999 he was studying up at Western (WWU) and I was still a wee bairn - a Junior in high school.
I sent him a care package full of candy, chocolate, and a sweet little red teddy bear he named Fuzzy. I think he just gave me a card, but that's okay because he was poor. That was around the same time he started bumming rides home from his friends, and selling his textbooks to buy greyhound tickets to come visit me on the weekends. Ahhh young love. ;)
I remember he came home that weekend, and we had an amazing few days together. It was so hard to see him go back to school, knowing it would be several weeks before I'd see him again.
This valentine's day is a quite different from the one 10 years ago. Now we're an "old" married couple, we have a mortgage, a preschooler, and all the responsibilty of being a grown up. But the spark is still there even after all this time. Dave has planned some kind of outing (it's a surprise) - and overnight babysitting for Sammie! WOOOHOO!
I treated him to something a little different this year. Today I took him down to Renton to get Lasik Eye Surgery. It was a little bit out of the budget, but I've been very blessed lately with my CTMH sales, and had enough to pay what our insurance didn't cover. I'm so excited for my hubby to be able to see clearly, without glasses, for the first time in his life! Happy Valentine's Day sweetheart!
I'd love to hear your valentine stories! Feel free to post in the comments section. Or display a link to the card you made for your sweetheart!
Dave is sleeping now, recovering from the procedure, so I had time to whip up this cute card. The lion swivels back and forth. For a tutorial on how to do this click here to go to Tresa Black's blog.
