We are sure looking forward to the long President's Day weekend.
And the fact that tomorrow is Valentines just makes it better. :)
This year I have not decorated for Valentine's Day.
I have so much going on that I just couldn't seem to find any time, so I guess I will jump
from Winter to Spring decor as the time comes.
But I couldn't let this special day past by without sharing a little "love". :)
I had this little old, simple and very dated wood box for over 25 years.
My husband made it for me one year as a Valentine's gift.
What this box holds is very special to me and through out all the years of military moves, I always
worried my "little treasures" would get lost.
The box was a wonderful way to ship its contents in a safer way. About 10 years later, I decided to decorate it a little.
And this is the way it has looked for many, many years now.
Can you guess what is inside?
You see, before we got married, my husband, (fiance back then) joint the military and we spent a year apart
while he attended basic training and paramedic school.
I was in Spain, he was here in the States and phone calls were not as easy to make 33 years ago like it is today,
so that left us just letters.
Yes, in this box I keep each and everyone of the letters we wrote to each other during that year.
Some people will think it is silly, but I hope, may be one day when we are gone, our grandchildren will be able
to read them and learn what our life was like for us back then and how much we have loved each other since.
For me, is the little things like this that really count.
Yes, I have always been very sentimental. :)
I hope you all have a super wonderful weekend with your loved one!
