My Valentine

We met in a drawing class.  Our first conversation was about the price of Folio paper. ($4.25 a sheet)  I thought he was amazing.  He drew pictures in my sketchbook while he talked about his life in Texas.  Our first date was dinner at my house, I served a mean bowl of noodles with tomatoes and parmesan cheese.  This was 17 years ago on February  11th.  We married a few months later on August 7th, yes fools do rush in.  I was 19.

He is the best dad to our two beautiful daughters, makes me laugh everyday and wraps his feet around my cold icy toes each night when I crawl into bed. 

I could not run this business without his support.  He never complains when I travel around the country.  Okay, he pouts when I go on the Bead Cruise, he knows he is missing out on all the fun.

He loves to read, watch SCI-FI movies, he is an amazing artist, he works so hard everyday and I happen to love him to pieces. 

I know, I count my lucky stars and thank God everyday for him. 

A house that Jess made for me.

On of my favorite necklaces that he made.

His studio and yes he does have an etsy shop.

That is so romantic! Sounds like a match made in Heaven.
I rushed in at age 19, too. Still together after all these years. Just goes to show that true love lasts. Here's to many more years...!
