This is the card I got my husband last Valentine's day. Oh, my goodness, I thought it was just the sweetest looking card ever. I have saved it and was unable to find one as adorable this year so I thought I would post another picture of it. I am sorry to say our day will be spent going back and forth from hockey games between two of the three daughters. There will not be a romantic dinner for us today. But Mr. Vintage and Rosy isn't one to care. And I do not mean that in a bad way. We have a wonderful relationship and appreciate each other every single day, not just on Valentine's. We go to dinner without kids two or three times a month and some evenings or weekend mornings we hide inside our bedroom with pots of tea and biscuits and while away the hours in each other's company reading, cuddling and watching our favourite movies. As a matter of fact, my oldest had to write one of those lists on facebook that they are all getting now and one of her "non-fiction" statements was "my mother is the luckiest woman in the world to have my father as a husband". She also wrote "I believe my parents are the best parents in the world. Truly". Is that not a wonderful Valentine's Day gift?
But I must admit I would much rather be grabbing my true love and wandering the countryside with my picnic basket in hand and pretty thermos full of tea. Wouldn't that be lovely? We will pretend that is possible and totally forget that it is -12 C with the windchill here right now.

Have a beautiful day, my pretties, whatever you do.
