Yesterday was Valentine's Day but I found my present this morning when I dragged myself into the office to check email. Sitting atop my keyboard (where Sweetheart knew I couldn't miss it) was a sweet little assortment of See's Chocolates -- and an even more sweet card.
Even though a card and chocolates are typical Valentine's fare, there's nothing typical about my amazing husband. He's amazing and I love him! I really don't know how I got so lucky but I hope he keeps me around forever!
It wasn't my favorite collection (that would be "Nuts and Chews") but it was probably even better because at least half of the decadent little items were things I won't eat (Ewwwwwww! I detest creamy centers. So, just think of all of the calories my Darling saved me!) Best yet, each rejected item was something my daughters positively drooled over! And, we all know Miss Madeline could use the calories more than Mommy!
Of course, the only way to know if the center was something nutty and/or chewy was to bite it. So, I did what I had to do and here's the mutilated box of chocolates several hours later. Most of the empty spots are courtesy of Gwendolyn and Madeline who weren't too proud to scarf what Mommy slobbered on.
