Happy Valentine’s Day
Posted February 14, 2013on:
My husband and I have a Valentine’s Day tradition… It began probably ten years ago as the parents of 4 children…We don’t go out to eat much and hate long waits on holidays like this one and Mother’s Day. We began getting our dinner to go, then finding a quiet out of the way place to park. We own a 15 passenger van with plenty of room. We bring along a fold-up tv table and set it up in the back seat or some years if the seats are removed sit picnic style. We chose great music and enjoy the peace of our own little world. I rather like our tradition and don’t want it to change…
This leather jacket is from QVC ‘s Denim & Co line. I purchased it last summer on sale, but it is available now Here… It comes in 8 colors and sizes XS to 3X. I highly recommend reading the reviews for items on QVC as there is such help with sizing to help keep down having to make returns…I will tell you this brand runs large and I take an xs. Sadly I ordered this one misjudging my size and am hoping to have it tailored once I am at my goal weight…
I may have an addiction to trench coats as I now own five of them… Three of them are just like this one in different colors by Rachel Zoe via Qvc and is on clearance now.. I also own it in black and khaki… I feel confident that they are classics and I won’t need to buy another trench. I keep resisting them at the thrift store such as the cute Ann Taylor one I tried on this week…
A final note on Valentine’s Day... My husband has been extending this holiday this year with candles, flowers and Tuesday night he bought me a beautiful heart shaped tin from Dove Chocolate. When I saw it I exclaimed, ” I told everyone in my WW meeting that my husband knew better than to give me chocolate this year!” He just smirked and opened it up. In the center was one lone chocolate heart. He had removed the rest and filled the spaces up with samplings of nuts, seeds, popcorn and raisins. It was really creative and worth more than anything to know that he gets and supports this return to myself. I think he is happy to have his wife back and is so excited about the timing of this Cayman Island trip! Is it silly that as I typed the part about his creativity and support that I teared up? I have always been a woman who can tear up at a Hallmark commercial….
Dear Readers, What traditions do you have for Valentine’s Day? Or do you do something different this year, if so what are tonight’s plans?
I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with Love, Laughter and Gratitude!
Linking Up with Look What I Got
Gratitude: I am grateful for our tradition! I am grateful for my supportive husband and family! I am grateful for the wonderful timing of this upcoming trip coinciding with this wonderful time of my putting the years of pain behind me and getting back to embracing life fully! I am grateful that the trip is a day shorter than I thought and that I will be home the night before my daughter comes home for her Spring Break!
