Subtle Valentines Hints

In preparation for Valentines Day, my sweet husband kept to one simple phrase -

"It's black, sleek, sexy and you can wear it."

He bought me a 530 Benchmade knife.

I actually really, really like it. A lot.

For Spencer's Trouble

Ah...Valentines Day. It was Valentines weekend 8 years ago when my little brother came home from his third (yes, 3rd!!) date with a young girl none of us had yet met and announced,

"We're getting married!"

It didn't go over well.

You see, Spencer's track record wasn't so great. And this was the icing on the cake. It wasn't so much Brit herself as it was...Spencer.

Spencer's dating years were rough. He always seemed to find himself liking the girl more than she liked him. And sadly, it happened a few times. Lots of trouble.

It became such a repetitive cycle that hearing Dixie Chicks, Trouble still reminds me of Spencer. And yes, sweet brother, my kids all call this the "Uncle Spencer" song. And we love singing and dancing along.

Remember, we love you.

This song fits Spencer like a glove.

So my point - we're really glad Brit came along 8 years ago, stepped up to the plate, stopped the "trouble" cycle...

Congrats to 8 years!!
