I traditionally make heart shaped cookies and treats to share with friends and neighbors, and Bernie and I exchange cards and maybe a small gift, or he gives me flowers.
This year he was inspired!
While Laura and I shopped in India (so to speak...) he was out shopping!
Apparently Tigs and Hart shopped too...there were cards from them as well.
"Princess Laura" got a two princess themed gifts, and a different balloon tied on her car as an early morning treat for her to take to work.
It is fun to get a surprise balloon at five a.m. in the morning....Inside the cute kitty box was the perfect nightshirt for a girl who is working on speaking more foreign languages.
And liking a glass a wine as well.
The princess card had princess stickers inside!
The stickers went on Laura's hospital badge right away.
I got red leather driving gloves, a dragonfly mother of pearl pin, enormous "diamond" stud earrings, a grey scarf with beads and sparkles, and best of all, chocolate silk pajamas!
There he is, my sweetheart, looking proud and happy with his gift giving extravaganza!
And the fun has just begun.
He has planned a Valentine's Day getaway weeking for the two of us to a historic bed and breakfast in Nachitoches (pronounced Nick-o-tish) Louisiana. It is a very old and historic town; one of the French settlement towns in Louisiana.
We'll take a four hour long drive to get there, chatting and listening to music, enjoying the ride as we go.
We're leaving in a couple of hours...hope the forecasted rain won't be too bad.
If it is...well, I guess we'll just have stay inside the inn and snuggle.
Rain or shine, we're sure to have fun!
