sweet and affectionate. But, like lots of men, he doesn't like to shop, and can be a little, well, you know, dense when it comes to picking out gifts.
However, there have been a few surprises lo these many years.
About twenty years ago, when Glen traveled all the time for work, he had to be gone on Valentine's Day. I had recently lost a favorite pen that I had for years. So, hubby surprised me with a new, lovely pen. It is one of the sweetest memories I have of Valentine's Day.
During those long years of work travel, the hubby became quite inventive. Here's a beautiful music box he made for me......in his hotel room late at night. We had a good laugh wondering what the other guests thought was going on when they heard the power tools singing. Hearts are my all-time favorite shape for just about anything, but especially jewelry. The heart locket on the left was a birthday gift from my mom. The ruby red on the right was a little treat Emily and I found at a vintage and antiques show last year.
I've been enjoying some embroidery lately....sweet napkins for spring. Once this part is done, I plan to crochet a pretty lace edging....I can hardly wait!
We haven't planned anything too romantic for Valentine's Day....but you never know. Romance can happen in the most unusual places when you are with your soulmate.
May you find a moment of peace..... A bundle of happiness.....and A little romance this Valentine's Day.
