My Valentine

Pink Heart Shaped Tea Cups!!!

As anyone who knows me knows, my husband is my very own and true Valentine.  I think at times we make others a little sick to their stomachs actually.  We always get remarks like, "how long have you two been married, you act as though you got married yesterday",  "can you keep your hands off one another", and "we can’t even take a picture because he is always kissing you".  I always smile to myself when I hear things like this because for Eric and me it is just the way we are together.  We have had some beautiful Valentine's Days together over the years.  The best one was when we were living in Puerto Rico.  He took me to the Wyndham Casino and Hotel in Isla Verde.  We ate at a rooftop restaurant and we even visited the casino.

  Casinos are not our thing but the atmosphere was so captivating.  Ladies in beautiful dresses and gentlemen in splendid suits and beautiful and lavish surroundings.  The night was fabulous and he gave me a gold bracelet and he also bought me a star that year.  I know it is just really a novelty but all the same I felt he loved me so much that he could buy me a star.  He gave me a star, yes he did that!!!

This year we had to spend Valentine's Day apart but that is okay for we know that this is our life.  We will be together again and we will be just as happy as we always have been.  This year he got me a beautiful pink inside heart teacup and saucer set for my tea.  My daughter Tiffany and I have become quite the afternoon tea drinkers.  We love Twining's tea and especially love Prince of Wales tea by Twining's.  So she and I have been enjoying our tea.  

 Now this came about because of Pinterest.  Yeah, I love Pinterest and I want to make everything I see and have all the beautiful things I see on Pinterest. That does not happen much but with the tea cups and saucers, I had to have them.  I had mentioned it to him; OKAY I sent him the picture and said "Can I have these PapapaPlease!  Of course he replied and said "is this a tea set"?  Well the thing is I have tons of tea sets but I did not have this one.  

He once bought something and I said sweetie you haven't even used it.  He looked at me with all the love in his heart and said "how long have we been married" to which I replied "for a long time", then he said. "How many tea pots do we own" and I said "too many to count".  Then he really went for the jugular and said' "and how many times have I had tea" and I tried to protest by saying but I do enjoy my tea pots.  I look at them every day and you know tried to pass them off as decor items.  A girl never likes to loose. In the end I conceded and I let my prince win.  You notice I say I let him win, although he did have a point. 

But I digress, as I do sometimes.  So I got my beautiful tea cups and saucers and we love them very much.  They are prefect for Valentine's Day and really for me every day.  You know being a Girly Girl and all.   He did well as he always does.  Oh and I forgot to tell you the best part.  After he asked if it was a tea set, he then emailed me to say: “anything you want my sweet princess"!  Yay me, I am married to such a wonderful guy that loves me to pieces and truly he is my Valentine!

Here are my cups filled with delicious tea.  One for me and one for my beautiful and loving Tiffany.  
You did notice they are pink, right?

Hope everyone had a beautiful and happy Valentine's Day!
