I hold Valentine’s Day very dearly in my heart, as many of you do, I’m certain. I have such a love of celebrations and today is no different. Cupcakes and cookies (or heart-shaped chocolate chip cookies, as Reece so subtly asked me to make this morning!), sweet cards (two of which I am the proud, teary-eyed recipient of!), and melt in your mouth chocolate. There is no better day to tell your Sweetie that you love them.
But wait! There is! How about EVERYDAY?! Why not make everyday Valentine’s Day? No, not the sugar high, full of indulgences kind, but the I-love-you-so-much-it-makes-my-heart-hurt kind! The I-can’t-imagine-living-a-day-of -my-life-without-you kind! The come-over-here-and-snuggle-with-me-on the-couch-and-let’s-read-a-book kind! We have it in our power to make everyday Valentine’s Day in our heart or hearts! We just have to do it! Make the commitment…take the plunge…love your love allllll year-long! I’m sure it would make attitudes better and gratitudes grow! Try it!
As for the once a year sweets (okay, so maybe we have sweets more than once a year in the Brown Homehold), those are good periodically. One thing that probably won’t change is my yearly ritual of wearing MY Honey’s high school ring. You see, on this day, 19 years ago, Rhett Brown stood on my parent’s doorstep and under the front door lamp, he asked
me to wear his ring. To be his only girlfriend. To go steady. And I said yes. And so now, on the anniversary of the day he asked me to wear the ring, I wear The Ring! I look forward to the day, love telling the story of the day, love remembering the day. The first day in my step towards becoming Mrs. Rhett Brown. I love that name!
So, Rhett Brown, I’d choose you. Every time. Thank you for making me Your Girlfriend….I won’t tell your wife! 😮
Until Next Time, I’m Fondly Yours,
The Final Girlfriend of Rhett Brown
