Over at Seaver's Place, romance is in the air as Saturday Night Genealogy Fun celebrates Valentine's Day. Our mission, should we choose to accept it:
1) Recall a memory of a Valentine's Day in your life. Is it the first love of your life? A special day with your lover, spouse or significant other? Do you have a picture of a Valentine's Day event, or a special Valentine that you received, to share?
2) Describe your Valentine's Day memory, activity and/or image in a blog post of your own, a comment to this blog post, or a comment on Facebook.
3) Have fun remembering a special day.
My husband and I are fairly recent newlyweds. This past January marked our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Sounds romantic.
HOWEVER, we have been living together for the past 17 years. Doesn't sound quite so romantic now does it?
Well I got to tell you, in all these 19 years, not once has my husband ever bought me a present for Valentine's Day. About 5 years ago he bought me a card. It had a picture of a dog peeing on a tree and the caption was "Hap-pee Valentine's Day." I kid you not.
Well this year, my "reason for living" surprised the hell out of me and presented me with my first ever Valentine's Day gift. Imagine my surprise when I opened this:
Nothing says love quite like a Hoover.
