I guess if you could be anywhere in the world for Valentine’s Day, it certainly would be Paris. It is one of the world’s most romantic destinations, if not the most.
I celebrate my marriage today, we have been married for 40 years together. I was 16 years old when I met my husband. It was a blind date and I had never been on a blind date before. I knew it within the first 5 minutes. I remember saying to myself, “Oh, I just met the man I’m going to marry!” Sounds crazy right, but that’s the absolute truth. One date was all it took.
They celebrate the same way here. The windows of the chocolatiers show cupid ready to shoot his arrow, the lovely heart filled boxes of chocolates and the beautiful displays. It is hard to take a photo without the reflection of the glass, sorry about that, but the pictures tell the story. So bear with me. Today I will share photos of something red, the color which expresses love.
The display of so many bouquets all wrapped in vibrant red looks so beautiful.
The banner which hangs over another display reminding us of this special day in the next photo.
Last year in Paris for St. Valentine’s Day, I was given flowers, a red necklace and dinner at a special place. I don’t need anything today, just the company of my family and husband. But, I know him only too well. He will be going out shortly and I know he will return with something for me, for today, to show me he cares. The man is a jewel and I am blessed. I have a beautiful card for him today, a lovely French Saint Valentin card.
Happy Valentine’s Day honey, I love you! I would like to wish my daughter and wonderful Son-In-Law Paul a very Happy St. Valentine’s Day. It is a special one you see this year as my daughter is expecting her first child. You can just imagine how very excited we are about this wonderful news. Happy Valentine’s Day to our friends and family back home.
