I hadn’t intended to talk about Valentine’s Day but when I got up this morning there was a beautiful Watercolor orchid waiting for me on the counter. Now this might not seem like a big deal to most of you but as a couple we normally don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because our anniversary is the 17th of February. That and I have wanted an orchid for years… so this is a big deal.
Most people don’t think of Chris as being very romantic. He’s a big guy and very manly. We watch manly things together (our favorite things include Forged In Fire, Fast and Furious movies, MotoGP racing as well as Isle of Man TT… you get the idea). I am fully a guy in a female body. Lol. I am very much the tomboy. I can be girlie if needed but I am much more comfortable just being me. Chris is the one that will pick out the romantic comedy to watch and I will give the look like “Really?” I would rather watch a horror movie or maybe something historical. Of the two of us he is the bigger romantic. We seem to have switched places over the years. It used to be me that was the romantic. See what can happen after almost 30 years of marriage? And I wouldn’t change a thing!
Nuts… I got lost in memories and I need to head out the door! Yikes! Thanks for reading! I hope you have a great day! Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
