holiday : send a card
Hi Everyone -
Hope you all had a great weekend! As you know, Valentine's Day is in a couple of weeks and the holiday has special meaning for us. We met on our infamous blind date to the Ice Capades (see no. 4 here) in the first few days of February many years ago.
Scott sent me a Valentine's Day card that year with a personal note, which I have with every other card or note he has given to me. It's a pretty funny card by today's standards because he signed it Love, Scott. He also wrote a note about how he'd like to get together again and that I should call him. I think when we did meet again he gave me a single red rose and some candy. I wonder what would happen if someone did such nice things these days after all the books about the 'dating rules'?
Scott gets an A+ when it comes to cards and notes. Sometimes, he likes a card so much he'll buy it several times, but I think he forgets he's already done so. It's ok, at least his message is consistent ;). We don't make a big hoopla about the holiday, though. I don't always get flowers on the actual day, but either before or after. As much as I love flowers, I'll take them anytime and don't place an emphasis on a particular day.
I buy Scott a lot of cards, too. I'll put them on his inspiration board as a surprise, but he rarely notices. It's ok, because I kind of think they're more for me to look at, anyway. I recently added wonderful letterpress cards from Chewing the Cud and Twig & Fig, which are very cute.
Coincidentally, this year we each bought a card from Smudge Ink. You can see mine above (click on the image to see the full message), but his is turned over so I don't see it. I'm quite proud of myself for not peeking. I'm usually a peeker. He's also getting the Surprise-a-Sweetie card from SusyJack* and I can't wait to set it up the night before. He will notice this one ;)!
I also adore cards from You Send Me and it was one of the few Scott could purchase when I was selling my own handmade greeting cards. I think Scott will like this post and seeing that very first card. He likes cards. Me, too.
