Filled with Love

May you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
This year my husband is home so we are spending it together. He is making me a special dinner at home. This is a real treat for many reasons. I am lucky to be married to an amazing cook. Unfortunately, due to long work hours and travel, he doesn't have much time to indulge in this area.
When he does cook, he goes all out. His creations are always amazing. I love the fact that he pours me a glass of wine and escorts me to an area to relax while he does the prep work. I wander back towards the kitchen around the time he begins to cook. However, I am not allowed in the kitchen. Luckily, our kitchen opens into our family room so I can curl up in a comfy chair by the fireplace and still enjoy being with him. It's nice to be able to talk and laugh with him. I love this time of catching up with him, hearing his thoughts, and talking about our up coming plans.
What ever menu he has planned, I know it will be delicious and I will enjoy every bite. Relaxing and lingering over a fabulous meal with my husband is something I look forward to and oh so appreciate it when I have the opportunity.
I don't need expensive gifts, or a dozen roses, the time we spend together is the best gift of all!

Wonderful Jo!
I'm so glad he's home and you can enjoy Valentines Day together. I can sure relate to deployments.

The topiaries are artificial plants made for outdoor use. I ordered them from Home Decorators collection online a few years ago and they have held up very well. They have been one of my most favorite purchases ever. I love the spiral shape.

Have a Happy Valentines Day!
