I Love February!


Hello, My dear family & friends,
Valentine's Day is past but for me it lingers in my heart and throughout the entire month of Love...
                I love February.

"The man or woman you really love will never grow old.
Through the wrinkles of time,
Through the bowed frame of years,
You will always see the dear face
 and feel the warm heart union
of your eternal love. "
       A. Montepert
 
Sweets for the Sweet!
 

True Love
Mark & Carolynn

"Us"
Our 12th Wedding Anniversary
1998
Mark and I have been happily married for 27 years.
We met in San Diego in 1985...
and it really was love at first sight!

"Grow Old With Me
The Best is Yet to Be."

My Sweetheart
"Then"
My Sweetheart
"Now"


Is your mouth watering, yet?
 
"His and Hers"

 
Whenever we visit San Diego we always make a trip to See's.
This year as Valentine's Day was approaching we indulged just a bit.
 
Two Hearts Beating As One...


I'm so glad you stopped by...
I know that most likely several of you are on
Post Valentine's Day diets...
BUT
I think you'd agree...
We all need a little sweetness in our day!

Blessings to you!
Carolynn  xoxo


"Now these three remain:
Faith,
Hope,
&
Love
But the greatest of these is Love."
