Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all!  Today being February 14th, I would be certainly remiss if I did not recognize this special day celebrating love and romance.

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.

Several years later I had a son and five years after that I had a daughter.  Here we are taking the time to enjoy a cup of coffee.

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 florist in Paris offer the most beautiful flowers of so many different varieties.

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.

The photo is a little dark, but if you click on it, it will enlarge so that you can see it better.

An unusual red chair, hearts of chocolates, a table setting of red, real red bon-bons, and the cafe offering a table for two are some of the photos I posted here.

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.

    Well, I have only been up a very short time. I need to continue working on postering & finding Kyra. It has been a difficult time & we all miss her so much….the cat is so sad, crying for her and hanging around her bed & toys. We keep faith that God will return our baby. In the meantime, the chihuahua we were supposed to re-home is now a family member. If you check my FB page, you will see Harry’s photo..very silly looking little man…LOL!
    Love to you & Michael on this special day,

    • Thank you so much for your good wishes and congrats. Tell Toby I said that I wish you both a very Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Keep the faith on Kyra and that’s great to give a loving home to the chihuahuas, he needs love too! Yes, we are so excited about our daughter Noreen. Keep in touch, love to you both.

I'd love to hear from you, please reply
