Love Commandments

Dan CupidThe paper is old, faded and worn.  It was found in an old box with some photos.  The photos were scenery and people unknown, judging by the clothing I’d say in the 40’s.  The text was typewriter typed.  The folds in the paper created holes, it’s been folded and unfolded many times I’m sure.  I can picture a young woman reading and laughing, perhaps before her beau is off to war. It’s clever and shows signs of respect, from an era long gone, but romantic and kind. Perhaps this Valentine spirit will warm your heart,too.

The Ten Commandments of Love

  1. Remember your sweetheart.
  2. Thou shalt not make GooGoo eyes at other girls, or boys.

Chocolate Sweetness, Love All the Way!

rom2What says Valentine’s Day to you?  Is it flowers, perhaps roses, with that sweet, sweet fragrance?  Is it a special dinner out at a fine dining restaurant?  Perhaps you dream of getting away with your sweetheart to a romantic bed and breakfast.  Maybe you need to give a box of chocolates or a beautiful piece of jewelry.  My thoughts on Valentine’s Day is just spending quality time with my sweetie, and telling him how much I appreciate him and all he means to me. What says romance to me  isn’t  gifts, it’s realizing he appreciates me back by how he shows me, and tells me, and by meeting my emotional needs. As for all those other sweet treats mentioned.  Well, those are just a great icing on the cake!! (Which by the way, cake is another great sweet treat, wink, wink)
