My Valentine

Posted in Elizabeth, Family, Joe at 9:11 pm by elagreca


He has been my Valentine for almost 15 years…wow…it doesn’t feel like it could be that long!

Not only did he put together these awesome Valentines for the boys…


But he also got me flowers, unexpectedly!! And he cooked my two favorite things…filet and shrimp.

What in the WORLD did I do to deserve this?? I will never know…

Today, as I was driving to work, I was thinking about my fondest Valentine memory. It had nothing to do with a boy that liked me. But it made me feel so incredibly special.

My Grammy (who died of lung cancer right after my wedding, in 2004) was such a fun Grandma. It was ALWAYS so special when we got to spend the night at my grandparents’ house. Once, I spent the night on Valentine’s Eve…and I woke up in the AM and went downstairs…there were two GIANT Valetines cards (1 for me and 1 for Grampy)…handmade. I felt so special and so loved.

As much as I dislike the “commercialism” that comes with this “holiday” — I do LOVE to take every opportunity to think about the people I love most. And honestly, there are SO many of them — it would take than one day to reach them all.

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you felt LOVED in a special way today.
