the heart day

started early for me. 5:30 in the am to be exact. that is when my mister came home with the bag of Chanel. Chanel no. 5 parfum. my oh so favorite. tucked away in the bag was a sweet gift card to Barnes & Nobel of course. because the book he went to get for me wasn't on the shelf. what a dear, sweet man. well, until the "happy pills" were discovered. while at the health food store he spotted them this weekend. naturally he picked them up for me so i was sure to happy this day of love. that's my guy....sort of romantic, ALWAYS a good laugh. 
the day was perfection. thoughtful gifts and a sushi lunch. golf balls for my older peeps. a new camping lantern for Sawyer. chocolate dipped strawberries all around. and even a special heart bentoish lunch for mister 1st grade. 
i love this day of love, hearts, and chocolate. the day we celebrate loving each other. the day of roses and tulips, of hugs and kisses, and of cards with hearts. the day we remember that Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes...

**today was a doubly good day...a package arrived from one of my favorite blogging friends, Amanda. full of fab goodies. thank you Amanda!
