Early Valentine

Valentines Day is a different kind of holiday for us.  Usually it is the man's responsibility to make Valentines Day special for his lady.  Not in the Goss household because Valentines Day is also the birthday of a certain Richard Goss.  So that puts me in charge.  I didn't know what to get him so I decided to do something more thoughtful rather than spend a bunch of money (especially since we don't have much these days).  So I created a photo book with all the pictures of us from the past NINE years and wrote a poem.  Get ready for a Dick & Julie overload!!

Another funny thing is that we never give each other presents on the actual day because neither of us can wait so he already got it last night!

Love is different between you and me
It may be difficult for others to see.
It isn’t our interests that cause us to attract;
We aren’t the same and that’s a fact.

You wonder why I strive to be thin
When in your eyes its curves that are “in”.
Jewels and makeup to you don’t matter
Jeans and a t-shirt do just as well to flatter.

Romance to you isn’t about glitter and rings
It’s taking the time to enjoy all the small things.
Our love isn’t about similarities, not one bit,
You and I are like a puzzle with pieces that fit.

Very sweet! From your poem it sounds like we have very similar hubbys :)
