One of the fun things about my special "love fests" .....
Is my putting on my thinking cap and trying to come up with a new and unique way of telling my special guy how important he is to me.
This year, I was really going into panic mode because as of Tuesday morning I just wasn't coming up with anything new and different.
My spirits have been so much on a roller coaster these past couple of weeks, that this was really hard. And, I feel like for the past two week I keep having this reoccuring thought. What will I do if something happens to John?
Barbara and Richard only reenforce how precious life is.
Well, on Tuesday ... I'd had enough. It was time for happy thoughts and grand ideas. Afterall, that is what my sweetheart, honey bunch, cutie-pie would expect.
And, I just can never let him down ......
I went out looking for ideas at the stores and GOT NO WHERE!!! I went online and GOT NO WHERE!!! I told my brain to start working and GOT NO WHERE!!!
Now, that is not good !!!!
Low and behold ....
I started to zero in on what makes my man special. What does he like? What are his hobbies? What are his dreams?
And, I went from there ......
And, then I had this brilliant idea .....
HE LOVES TRAINS
So, here through photographs was my Valentine's Day gift to him.
I hope you enjoy my adventure along with us.
I took him on a
vintage train ride
As the engine whistles and smoke passes our
window, we travelled together back to the
Golden Age of Travel of the 1920's.
Served with his very own luxury chocolates and chocolate chip cookie.

And, I just let cupid take care of the rest !!!!
The clink of crystal glasses will soon be filled
with chocolate milk
As we watched on the huge widescreen television
our very own private showing of
the train makes its way
through the landscape green of Ireland.
Now, this is my make-believe trip everyone .....
Ireland, the Isle of Green
is the home of family history of the
this romance of rails
of authentic culture

Memorable sounds of
Celtic Music played softly in our ears
