Happy Valentines Day

Yesterday inbetween preparing for the evening festivites I ran out to take a few pictures
The sky was blue and clear and the air was crisp and clean and it was glorious.
The moon was lingering in the sky hoping for a little exposure. . .so I gave it some.
I treated my beloved to toasted no knead multigrain bread for breakfast this morning.
We're pretty stringent on having oatmeal with ground flaxseed and when we have anything but. . .the day holds the promise of being special.

Valentines Day has always been a simple low cost affair in our home .
It's more about the affection we share and gratitude that we still love one another.

I can count the times we've gone out for Valentines dinner.
When the boys were at home. . I made a special Valentines meal and cake for my family .. .
just like my mom had always done.

Now. .
I either make a special dinner for the two of us .. .as I did last year. . .
we'll cook something together. . .

(Oh look what I found popping up in my garden yesterday)

We're off on a date to Ikea this morning . ..
not that we need anything in particular but it is fun to poke around there.

If the weather holds we'll take in a walk somewhere along the way .. .
take some time to talk . ..

.. .share our hearts with one another. .
knowing that no matter what. . .

.. .we have each others backs.

That's what we'll do.
I would ask for nothing more from my valentine.

I hope you have a day filled with sweet moments. . .

To all the special people in our life ..

We love you!!!

Have a wonderful day my friends, my pedometer is reset and ready to go.


  1. Dear Lovella

    Your day sounds like ours . . .

    minus the little green shoots :(

    everything is still covered with the white stuff here.

    Wishing you and Terry the loveliest of valentine's.

  2. Have a wonderful day with Terry...Ikea is a fine destination!

    I'm having my grandkids over for a party this afternoon...what fun!

  3. Happy Valentine's Day!!! How exciting to have something popping up in your garden! And an Ikea data?!?!?! Soooo much fun!
    Have a wonderful, love filled day, you deserve it!

  4. What a sweet post! It sounds like a fun day!

    My poor darling is working all day, followed by a session with his physical therapist (still recovering from his bicycle accident last month), so our dinner will be at home and a bit late...but we'll be together.

  5. Awwww... the contentment of true love that needs little more than the simple things.
    Beautiful !

  6. It sounds like an absolutely perfect day. I asked my hubby NOT to buy me flowers today because of the cost.........next week when they have lowered the price again, THEN you can buy me flowers....:-)
    i must admit, i am a little envious of the green in your garden, and the fact that you have an ikea. oh well i'll get over it, i'm not bitter, just bitterrrrrly cold!!!!

  7. oh, by the way did i mention, this morning it was -48 with the wind chill, just thought i would mention that so you could understand me bitterrrrrrly cold...;-)

  8. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

  9. I love those little green shoots! Spring is coming...

    Enjoy your day.

  10. Wow! I wonder if I have some green things trying to poke thru my mulch?! I should go and take a look.
    Thanks for the Gravol advice. It's much appreciated.

  11. It sounds like you had a lovely day! Enjoy Ikea!


  12. I love that candy cane heart! What a great way to use them after all the leftovers of Christmas.

    Your Valentine celebrations sound perfect...no hoopla necessary.

    I have a little surprise for you at my blog this morning...
