  • Gift a gift made by your hands to your valentine

    Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, are you ready? That is the day I like to make something special for my sweetie. 

    He has always done sweet things for me, but I must admit, I would discover what he was going to do before he got the chance to present it.

    In our first years of marriage, money was tight, so we gave each other small things. I would make a special dinner with a luscious dessert, and one time he gave me nail polish. It was so sweet, but unfortunately, I guessed it before he had the chance to surprise me.
