It’s Valentines Day and I’ve been bleating that the mister and I aren’t romantic. Well after twenty four years together the love is strong but romance and all the lalala mushy bullshit just feels weird and we tell ourselves that we don’t buy into the romance.
We certainly don’t go in for expensive gifts, a card and shared meal is more our style. Ummm, then I took a moment and realized that today had actually been peppered with mushy romantic moments. Simple little gestures that were all kind to the budget but warming to the heart.
There was this card I gave him…it was a freebie with a magazine that I had in the drawer 🙂
and check out the heart above the ‘i’….total high school I know.
Oh, I gave him this lolly watch to remind him that spending time with him is the sweetest joy ever.
And while he mowed the lawn I made chocolate cake and baked it in his Nan’s heart shaped tin because, romantic!
Turns out our day was pretty romantic and even after twenty four years together it’s still alive.
What about you? Did you make cake…or eat cake?
Did you exchange cards with anyone?
