Here's wishing you all a loving Valentine's Day! There are so many blogs out there with some really pretty red stuff this month, it has been a lot of fun browsing! But todays post is for my honey! We have been married 17 years now, not much time to some - but this is our second marriage for both of us...and we are still as happy as the day we got married! My husband Roger, is one of the smartest, most loving, giving, helpful, and creative people I know. One of the things that I will never forget about Roger's love is when my daughter went into the Navy (Quite a few years ago. She is now married with two children.) Anyway, the recruiters came to our home to pick her up and take her away to who knows where! It was the last I would see of her until graduation from boot camp! I was very sad and I cried quite a bit that day! Roger said he had to go to the store and left. When he came back, he brought a card and some flowers, a hug and a kiss and told me how much he loved me and understood how sad I was at seeing my sweet little girl leave (and growing up!) He has always surprised me when I least expect it. The first year we were together before we got married I was expecting an engagement ring that Christmas - Surprise: He got me a traveling bag! (and I did get the ring sometime later!) Last summer I came home from work and found him putting in the french doors on my shop, and he didn't finish until he had it done...Roger is just a wonderful husband and altogether a generous and kind person. He loves his family and he loves mine too. So to end this post I just want to say; "Happy Valentine's Day, Honey!"

And "Happy Valentines Day" to all you bloggers out there. I am sure you all have your "honey's" to write about too!
