My Funny Valentine…..

I would like to introduce to you the inspiration behind my whole being…

This inspiration came to me way back in the 2nd grade…

However, I lost this inspiration when I was 10 years old ( I moved away) …but miraculously came back 5 years later…


Meet my inspiration, the love of my life….my best friend…my sweet hubby….

……While vacationing with friends in Canada, my friend Linda took this picture. We both feel this photo
depicts his personality to a tee…(Hey, he was voted Best Personality in high school..)

He IS my MY FUNNY VALENTINE…He wakes up every morning at 5 am. (ugh) to begin his exercise routine..

…happy, chipper, with a smile on his face, sometimes whistling a happy tune…



…………..EVERY DAY……

He is kind….He is thoughtful…He has the highest level of commitment…..

………..He lives life each day with the utmost sense of integrity..the most honest person I know….

….He is the most wonderful father and grandfather…

……………………….the backbone of our family………..

……….Most of all….he is my biggest cheerleader…He encourages me to…


…After 42 years of marriage (yes I was married when I was 2..)…

each day is an incredible, adventurous, journey with the man I so love, MY FUNNY VALENTINE…I am truly blessed…
