My Funny Valentine
Paul and Abby surprised me Valentine's Day morning with a nice card and a lovely box of chocolates. It was so nice compared to my home-made garland and cards I made them. Later that day, when I went to pick Paul up from school, I told him about the "newlyweds" upstairs and how I noticed the new hubby had bought his new wife flowers because of the ProFlowers box on their porch. I then went on and on about how silly it was to spend money on flowers when they were just going to die anyway and how we were much smarter and would rather receive store gift-certificates, etc. I talked about this the whole way home. Well, when we pulled in the driveway, Paul finally says, "I guess I should tell you those flowers are for you." What? Understand this: Paul has never bought me flowers before and he had already given me some nice things that day so I really had NO CLUE! Sure enough, there was a beautiful bouquet of tulips (my favorite flowers) addressed to me with the sentimental note attached that read: "Now you can't say I never buy you flowers." You can imagine how my tune changed. They are beautiful and light up the room! We ended our day with heart shaped pizzas Abby and I made together. What a great Valentine's Day! I am such a lucky girl.
