Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day , hope today will be filled with love :-) Today is also a special day to me as it is my Dad's birthday , he is 91 today and he is a wonderful father who I love dearly ,wish I could be there to spend the day with him . I'm going to share a picture of my Dad and myself on my wedding day , 39 years ago , wasn't he a handsome man , still is ;-) My Dad is a quiet man except if you get him talking about horses , we grew up with harness racing horses and my Dad has a  passion for them ,he can of course no longer care for horses but he still on occasion repairs harness as well as other equipment for the horsemen . Happy Birthday Dad .

Another little treasure to share with you is this very old Valentine card ,it was one of a few old cards that I got from Bessie , most are Christmas cards , I love the illustrations on these vintage cards , it is actually a postcard . Sweet isn't it.
I will spend my day with my dear hubby that is definitely my sweetheart not only for today but for always .
Have yourself a great Valentines Day .
hugs Sheila
