All Balls

All Balls


One of my favorite times of the week is when I get to share my week. What a week it has been. All Valentine theme, all week!!
1. First hubby and I enjoyed an awesome time on Saturday at a Valentine Dinner and Dance with my bestest friend from high school and her husband, Richard and Teresa.

We had some great food, a little two-stepping and amazing fellowship with our new venture, members of the Moose Lodge.

Teresa and Richard got me the balloon and my sweet husband bought me a rose!

2. We had our first snow of the season. Well, SNOW might be a stretch, but anything white that falls from the sky in Texas - we consider SNOWFALL. Of course I had to include this picture!!

3. The cold weather and the SNOW lent itself to our first fire in the woodstove of the season. MMMMMMMMMMM...the smell of a great fire !

4. I miss all my g-babies and I got a wonderful surprise from the kiddos in Maryland. I love getting mail from my g babies - anytime and in any form !

5. My kitchen remodel. It is looking amazing. Finished the cabinets, countertop and sink. The floor had to be ordered and hopefully we can get started on that this weekend (hubby can't wait for that project!)

Ever wonder where Valentine's Day comes from?
Fear no more............from the Wikipedia know all

Saint Valentine's Day, often simply Valentine's Day,[1][2][3] is a holiday observed on February 14 honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentinus. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. It is celebrated in countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").[1][3]
Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.[4]
