We have spent so many wonderful Valentine Days together,, hubby and I... and each one was so special and wonderful.... but there is only one that really sticks in my mind,, it is really a funny and very Romantic to say the least.... So this post is in tribute to my Valentine.... my Sweet Caring Husband.....

In the first few yr's of our Marriage like most young couples we did not have a lot of money,, but that did not stop my DH,, he would come up with the sweetest little gifts for me,, only the ones I would love,, to other's I am sure they would have said,,,, I can't believe he gave you that..... But too me they were the kindest most wonderful gifts he could have given me.... I have a real love for Beef Jerky,,, just love it,,,,  and he new that,,, so sometimes he would stop and buy a few to surprise me,,,, and to me it was like getting a expensive piece of jewelry...........or something like that....... or he would bring home a single Rose from the gas station,,,, (they were cheaper there)..... but I just adored them...... I Love the simple little things in life I am not a fancy kind of gal,, and he is not a fancy kind of guy,,, so we fit together so well.... any way that was just a few of the sweet little things he would do for me...... But on this one Valentine's Day,, a long time ago,,,, at the Laundry Matt,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  we did not have a washer and dryer back then,, so every Sat. we went to do the laundry,, and he went with me every time,,, how great is that..... Am I lucky or what.........

Any way the laundry matt that we used was next door to a Florist's shop.. and Valentine's Day was on that Sat, we were doing laundry,,, I did not mind it all because he was with me... But he did feel bad that we were spending the Day doing laundry..... So while I was busy with the folding he slipped out... it was very busy in there that morning too,,,, so many ladies with small children,,,,,,, and no husband......so when I heard some ladies making some gasps and hearing oooos and ahhhsss I turned and here is  this Man trying to get into the door with this very Large and very Red heart shaped balloon,, that said I Love You..... and a small sweet bundle of Daisy's which are my favorite....... well behind that huge heart was my sweet honey bunny,,,,,, he walked over to where I was sitting and gave me the most Wonderful Valentine's Gift ever..... I told him he did not have to do that,,,,,,, but he just smiled that most beautiful smile,,,, and said........... yes I did,, Because I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!  I could have just melted right then and there....  I can only imagine what all those ladies said when they got home to there husband's.....lololol;;;;;  they were all just standing there watching what was going on....

Rod _ Alaura's Wedding Day 

So that is why that one Valentine's Day I will always remember,,, I am so very Blessed to have such a wonderful Husband,,,,,,,,,, Wow were we young in that photo,,,, gosh wish I looked that tiny now.......hehehe... he still looks the same,,, same mustache.. you know I have never ever seen him with out that,,,,, not sure if I would even recognize him...lol

Well Ladies that is my Pink Saturday Valentine Day post... I hope you all enjoyed it and did  not find it too boring and long............. lol'  I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with all the little things in life that make you happy and feel well loved...... So wishing you all a HAPPY VALINTINE'S DAY; from both of us to all of you..

AND TOO YOU MY SWEET LOVE; HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY;  THANK YOU FOR BEING MINE.......

Thank you for stopping by. I really enjoyed your valentine story. I remember the days when we didn't have a washer and dryer either. My husband was an airman III class in the Air Force and we were living on love literally. Great post.

Alaura I loved this story of your most special V-day. I think a guy going to a laudry mat with me would be romantic enough, but this is really specail. The photo of you two on your wedding day is so precious. What a gorgeous couple!

Happy Valentine's day to you Alaura...sweet stories. My hubby always managed to give me little gifts also....he used to work 2nd shift and would stop at the grocery store on the way home. They were always clearancing the home items. He would bring salt and pepper shakers, signs, napkin rings...just odds and ends, but they were precious to me then...and still today......

How romantic! Those little gestures mean so much!

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

What a darling post, as you already know I did one for my husband too... Isn't marriage wonderful? I chuckled about how young and very thin we all were at that time in our life. It sounds like you have a caring wonderful husband who loves you very much.
What a nice picture of the two of you... so romantic!

I really thought I came over before and left you a comment... well it just goes to show you my mind is slipping.

Have a Wonderful Day to Both of YOu-
