you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
Case in point: Year after year, we've done the same old, same old for Valentine's Day (not that I'm complaining...same old is much better than nothing!!) But this year, I was kind of hoping for a little. more. effort.
(Yes...I said the E word.)
And, to my great pleasure, my old dog, delivered up some fantastic new tricks!
The clues took us all across town from Wal-Mart to the golf course, to Josh's storage shed to the elementary school. Twelve clues, each with a rose which eventually led us to dinner and our biggest prize of all...Our men (with the final rose completing our dozen roses.)
We loved the well-planned, fun, romantic evening...
and to think that it could occur
"all because two people fell in love."
To my "old dog" Josh, I can't believe you've put up with me for nearly 11 years. As I reflect on our first Valentine's Day together 11 years ago when your tricks were still new and you surprised me with a diamond ring and asked me to marry you, I still feel giddy. I love you as much today as I did then...and a whole lot more! Thank you for the extra effort this Valentine's Day. You're the best. I'm still the luckiest girl in the world!
