It's the season of love in all the stores and it seems everyone is advertising ways to "make her Valentine's Day special".

You know what? I am thankful for my husband who, 4 years ago when we were dating, gave me this lovely crystal vase - with no flowers - on Valentine's Day. The card simply said, "I promise to fill it often." He always says that it seems silly to spend big money and pull out all the stops on ONE day of the year and neglect the other 364 days. I'm grateful he has a year-round view of love. It includes flowers, dates, diapers, laundry, and a whole slew of other things that might not be as romantic to others, but are certainly Lovely to me.

And I'm thankful for the flowers he brought home this week ... on a Monday. =)

Currently smack dab in the middle of your husband's blog post on food and I had to take a break and send a BIG digi fist bump. This is HUUUUUUGE and I feel extra-vindicated that someone with actual education and experience is saying EXACTLY what I've been saying for years.

K, back to finish the post. THANK YOU
