Sending Some Valentine's Day Love Your Way

I've got the feevah, ladies, the Valentine's Day fever, to be exact. In perfect husbandly form, Hubs had roses sent to my office on the Friday before Valentine's Day, so all the single ladies can swoon at what a romantically prepared guy he is. & I love that about him. To add to it, he had them sent in a black hat box, because he said he was even bored with roses in tall clear vases. I love his creativity. & on top of all that, on top of his fabilis card, right next to the roses was a box with a new Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens, with my name on it.

Can I tell you how much I love my man?

My fab Valentine's Day roses taken with my new camera lens.
Obviously I'm still learning how to use it, but I'm loving it just the same!

Now for the icing on the cake, here's the gift I received as part of Tres Tippy's Valentine's Day Swap! I was paired up with Kathy who lives in Cape Cod. I can't even tell you how cool it is that I can say that I live in Japan and have a friend I met from the blogosphere who sent me a Valentine's Day gift. The best part is that this is a gift I loved, I would have got from myself, and that is so useful --- Tiffany's Table Manners for Teenagers. I immediately started reading it to my Little Guy and love the wonderful insight into proper etiquette! Thank you, Kathy!

A keeper! What a wonderful gift!

Hoping your Valentine's Day is full of surprises!
