Happy Valentines Day

It's Valentines day, so I'm going to get sappy and mushy. If you don't want to read that, please feel free to skip down to the pictures!

First of all, Happy Valentines day to my sweet Greg. I could not imagine how my life would be if I'd said no to that blind date. I recall when you showed up and I saw you through the window from the mirror where I was putting finishing touches on my hair, you got out of your classic sky blue Lincoln Continental, pulled a comb from your pocket and fixed your hair. I smiled.

Not wanting to look like I was waiting impatiently, I stayed where I was, watching you come up the walk until you were out of sight. Only once you rang the bell did I make my way to the door, heart fluttering all the way. I could not remember your name until three quarters through the date, but I knew it would not be a one time date.

I spent half of the movie wondering if you'd try to hold my hand or put an arm around me. When I glanced over from the corner of my eye and saw you, head rolled back, mouth wide open, almost silently snoring, I stifled a giggle and quit worrying and wondering and enjoyed the rest of the movie all by myself.

Talking all through dinner until they almost closed the restaurant around us was amazing, and in one of your stories, I finally heard your name and repeated it over and over in my head so I wouldn't ever forget it. We talked on my couch until two in the morning, and even though I didn't get a kiss, hug, or even a handshake, I still knew this was going to be pretty special. I love you, and always will. Happy Valentines day, my love!

Happy Valentines day to my sweet furries too! To my pretty Star, or should I say Greg's pretty Star! I wanted you from the first moment I saw you, and even when you were tearing up my arms until I thought I'd be scared for life, I still loved you! I love that you're a daddy's girl. And I love hearing him talking to you when he thinks I can't hear.

Like when I heard him tell you, "I know you're not bad, you're just drawn that way," quoting Roger Rabbit. I had to smile. Or when he confessed just yesterday about your computer time. He said he pets you a lot at the computer and I asked how in the world he gets anything done, he had to say that he didn't really get much done, he just pets you because you demand it.

As for me, I just love how when you occasionally will bless me with your presence at night, you will walk up one leg, perch on my back and have a bath, maybe rub in my hair, before walking back down on the opposite leg. It's so silly, and so cute and it always makes me smile.

My darling heart kitty, Leo. Who wouldn't love a kitty who runs down the stairs and dives into their arms like you just can't wait another second to be cuddled and snuggled? How can I not love a kitty who gets so obsessed about laying on me that you almost destroy my laptop by shoving it out of your way?

You make me smile when I feel you jump onto the bed and settle in leaning against my feet. Even though you refuse to move up and get pets at night, just knowing your warm presence is right there makes me happy. Even though I now know that you bug daddy for attention in the morning, I know you're still my kitty.

Leo, you make me giggle when you don't realize what a big cat you are. How you think you can squeeze into tiny places is beyond me. Why you don't think you can jump up on a counter that you can rest your chin on when standing on your back feet makes me giggle. I'm just so glad that you're my kitty, and that you've chosen me as your person.

Ok, enough mush! Time for pictures of the kitties! They're the ones I made for last year's Valentines day, but I haven't had time to make new, so here they are again. And if you feel the need to point out that I could have made new pictures in the time I took to blather all that sappy stuff above, well, I'm afraid my ears are closed to that logic!

Star first!

Then Leo!

Happy Valentines day to all of you, from all of us! We hope you take a few minutes to be sappy today too!
