True Story Tuesday - V-Day

Today is Tuesday and I am linking up with Rachel and Mr. Daddy!  I love the crazy stories they tell!  If you have a crazy story to add, just click on the picture above and link up!

Our First Valentines Day,

When Wes and I met in October of 1999, I was a very broke single mom.  When Valentines day rolled around I said on more than one occasion, "Do not buy me anything, Valentines day is a Hallmark holiday and I don't believe in waisting money" NO GIFTS!!!  Well that day I did call and ask if he would like to come over for dinner.

I cooked Chicken and Rice and homemade biscuits.  (He loves those)

At that time Wes only had a motorcycle.  He lived 35-40 miles from me, and I might remind you it was February!!  He decided to come over after work and have dinner with us after all. 

At 7:30 in walked Wes, decked out in leather (Jacket, Chaps, Boots, Gloves) with a dozen roses and the biggest Hersey's kiss I had ever seen. That was so sweet I almost cried...fast forward 11 years (yes 11 years)

I got in my car yesterday morning and on the dash was ???

 big Hershey's Kiss, and the sweetest card ever that said "In 20,30,40 or even 50 years I hope you still want to hold my hand" ....  he hates holding hands...and there was a CD, set to play a song he said makes him think of me.  George Straight "I look at you"  I must say that I cried all the way to work...that was just so sweet.
