With Valentine’s Day in the final countdown, I always think of my favorite gift. I think/hope we all have that one Valentine’s Day gift that just meant the world. I think so highly of gifts that are from the heart. I guess those grocery store teddy bears and heart shaped chocolate boxes are nice and all, but nothing beats a gift that says “I really thought of you and wanted to get something that I knew represented us.” My husband surprised me back in 2005 with this painting.
We were all lacking money for some fancy gift and so I wasn’t really expecting anything. So when he showed up on my doorstep with this, it melted my heart. He painted himself crying because he couldn’t buy me flowers or chocolate.
He has painted many things between then and now and this one is still my favorite EVER! It is the one that I know I’ll have forever and love to tell people about it when they ask (and sometimes when they don’t.)
What is your best Valentine’s Day gift?
