Today is Valentines day!
Today is also the anniversary of the first time that my hunky hubby & I went on a date.
Now I have to admit (sorry Mr P) that I do not get Valentines day presents unless I buy them for myself.
This year was amazingly different.
This year I received the most thoughtful, wonderful gift that a gal like me could ever want.
A pair of dressmaking scissors!
Now these are not just any dressmaking scissors.
They are super sharp but when they have been used a little to much, they can be sharpened!
No more blunt scissors!
But did you also notice something else about theses scissors?
He had my name & our 15 year anniversary date engraved on them!!
(which is also Valentines day)
He did this all while I was on a Bloggers Lunch meet the other day & was so proud of himself that he gave them to me in the car on the way home!
Only someone who has loved me for 15 years could know that a pair of scissors could bring me to tears, happy tears!
This was a photo of us on that day as we caught the citycat ferry back to the car.
here are some other photo’s from that special day.
It was a really special day for me as it was just over 1 year on from the Brisbane floods that devastated the only city I have ever lived in.
It was wonderful to see that the Brisbane River was back to normal.
The scars were still evident.
I knew that there would still be reminders.
The last time that I went down the Brisbane river on a boat was for Mr P’s work Christmas party which was of a night time so the scars were not visible.
But Brisbane has recovered!
If you live in the outer suburbs as I now do, why not take your kids for a trip on the citycat & see for yourself.
Where ever you are & what ever you are doing today,
I hope you have a fantastic Valentines day!
This is an open letter to my husband..
Dear Mr P,
Thank you for loving me for 15 years.
Thank you for being the most hardest working man that I know.
Thank you for giving me 2 beautiful daughters.
Thank you for being the only man who could put up with my
obsession to fashion
my addiction to fabric
my need for bling
my desire to own as many shoes as possible
my must have for handbags
my craving for new dresses
Thank you for letting me be me & thank you for being the best you.
I love you with all of my heart
Love you now & forever,
