LOVE IS...

This is a sweet reminder of my early marriage days. We left little love notes everywhere and sent each other cards in the mail. I hope you will come join Marydon and Sherry and I for this Monday fun meme. The shy artist Kim Grove use to leave little notes for her future hubby Roberto Casali and he kept every single one of them but he thought there was something more too them. He showed them to a person in the syndication business who agreed that they should be  made public and that is how the Love is...phenomenon was born.
I shared this with you today because in the store earlier today I told Sweets to make sure he sent me a Valentine. Our local King Soopers grocery store has a mail box in each front range store and they collect your addressed and stamped Valentine's and then they are mailed from Loveland, Colorado. Each year thousands of folks send their Valentine's to Loveland so they will have the special postmark. They have volunteers who hand stamp these Valentine's and there is always a special poem on the stamped cards. Send your cards too. They are www.withlovefromloveland.com/.

I remember years ago sending valentines to Loveland Co to have them stamped and mailed to loved ones...
Love is...saving all the cards my husband had sent to me.

That was cute and I love that you gave all that information. My darling man hands me the checkbook so I know he won't be interested in Loveland.....lol....but he's been a keeper for 44 years.

In Texas we have a little town called Valentine. You can sens your cards there and they will stamp and mail for you. I do it most every year for the kids.
