Enough Mush.........

Back in 1969, we had been married 7 1/2 years on Valentine's Day. My husband gave me this large envelope with my name on the front and signed from him.
Well, I opened up this beautiful card and there was two pages of all these sweet words. I remarked that there was enough mush to last for years. His reply to me was that if that was true, then he would never buy me another Valentine. Well, here it is 2010 and he has held true to his statement. Each year, I bring out this same beautiful Valentine with all that mush. Now, come this August 18, we will be married 49 years.

You open up the card and here is the first page.
Below are the two inside pages. Notice that he
never signed the inside of the card. I am so glad
that I saved this card because you cannot find
them this beautiful now. We have had great fun
every year as the card comes out again.

    Old Valentines are the best of the best and yours, along with its special story, is simply lovely. I hope your Valentine's Day was spectacular.

  3. That was such a beautiful story. Our 45th is on the 16th.
    I have the very first heart shaped box of chocs that hubby gave me on our first Valentines day.

  4. Marie,

    I love that you have kept this Valentine all these years and it still means so much to you.
