Romantic story with cupcakes

Welcome to our home/porch...

Please sit down and stay awhile...
we have lots going on...

We made red velvet and yellow cupcakes
especially for you.

Help yourself to a few chocolate covered strawberries,
they are very sweet and tasty.

My son made his Valentine Box...
In case you didn't's a Robo-Soldier...can you
find the 5 3D & 5 2D geometric shapes?

Then off to write 20 Sponge Bob Valentine cards...remember
those days, how excited you were to recieve a valentine card? Especially from someone
you would look extra close to see if they wrote your name
extra nice or if they picked that special card just for you?...hahaha
Ohhh..I will be so sad when he no longer does this at school.

I still love getting Valentines cards! My hubbys
cards are always funny...after 20 years of marriage he can
still make me laugh...or cry....

The reason I write CRY is because a couple of years back I was
having a recurring dream. I am standing knee deep in warm, crystal clear water, holding my skirt
above my knees so it doesnt get wet and wearing a billowy off the shoulder white blouse.
And I kid you not...a huge pirate ship in the background...anyways....
I am all distressed because I've lost my ruby with a diamond in the middle ring in the water!
I am crying because I cannot seem to find it....

I was having this dream soooo many times...I wonder what
it meant????

I mentioned to my hubby that I must have been a pirate wench looking for treasure...hahaha...
because I am crying over a lost ruby/diamond ring.

One Christmas... my handsome and wonderful husband... surprised me with
a beautiful ruby with a diamond in the middle ring...

I cried.

Well, I do hope you had a great time and please come back soon!

Don't forget your goody bag!

Ahhh your husband is a keeper. Beautiful ring. My goody bag is full, thank you so much! BTW when you little boy has outgrown those valentine's, you just do it again years down the road with your grandchildren. I just did that last week with them after school. But....I am not rushing your time with you own, it goes way too fast anyway. Happy Valentines Day.
