A Valentine Gift From My Guy

I was an immediate fan of the new
Masterpiece Theatre series

Now in season 2 my sweet hubby
knows that at 9pm Sunday nights
he is to entertain himself elsewhere
(which he's more than happy to do, during this show!)
while I cozy up in front of the
fire to watch.
The costumes alone, of this period are exquisite!
(I secretly wish this were all back in!)

So, my husband gives me my Valentines gift today
which is this book that I didn't even know
existed...
it's a true story of the real "Downton Abbey"!
He said he read about it in the newspaper
last Sunday and went to
Barnes and Noble and found it!
Now....that is a husband
who knows his wife's heart!

He knows not to buy me flowers,
I buy my own every week.
No jewelry for me!,
I have been wearing the same
cross necklace for 6 years!
But a book about a time that once was...!
Oh and a note that brought tears!

That is why at 25 and counting years
he is still my only Valentine.

Happy Valentine's Day!
Sweet Followers!
I hope your day is also
full of sweet surprises!

Hi there, Just came from Heaven's Walk and so glad I did-I'm loving what I see. I've heard about that show but haven't found it yet.
Hope you have a blessed weekend.

I am visiting from Laurie's blog, Heaven's Walk. She is such a lovely lady, and it was so kind of you to send her such a heartfelt gift. Everything inside is so lovely. I know it made her smile. I am going to check out your Etsy shop. I'll be back soon. xo

What a sweet man you are married to! No wonder he is a keeper. I'm visiting from Laurie's place, "Heaven's Walk." I gasped when she showed the beautiful box you sent her and swooned when the box was opened. Gorgeous!!! As a bird lover, and anything related to birds, (except poop) I just have to visit your Etsy shop. I'm just getting to know Laurie and absolutely love her blog! She truly is a sweetheart and her home is gorgeous. What a nice thing to do to help lift her spirits.
