You must just know my Mark, he's the sweetest person on earth. When Valentine's Day comes around I can always count on him to bring me Haagen Dazs Rocky Road Ice Cream. (He's precious---he picks it up on the way home from work, then I eat it right away!) He's never sent flower to me. Well, except the ONE time he did: It just didn't work out---the florist was SO busy, they delivered the roses the DAY AFTER Valentine's Day! It was supposed to be a surprise; it was! But being the person I am, I refused the flowers, and made sure the florist credited Mark. We both agreed after that experience, that the only way to be sure I was happy was to stop and buy the chocolate ("any chocolate", I told him) on the way home.
But this year is different. You see, today he bought this for me:
Because we love adventure, he bought one for himself as well! We'll take them when we go camping. Plus there are a number of great trails around here for us to explore. Now isn't this the Valentine's Day gift you always wanted? I love my Mark!
I told him it needs some pink and he sent me the link to this eBay item:
"I am a grandma,", I said! He said, "Age doesn't matter!" He has so much confidence in me, I'm honored. So, OF COURSE, I took it out for a few test rides on our road. I did fine, luckily our old Lab Sarge MOVED out of the way at the last second, but that was a close call!
My question for you all: What unusual gift has your loved one given you for Valentine's Day?
Hugs, Hearts, Love and Blessings,
