A Blue and White Valentine's Day

A few months ago, I was on an airplane and flipping through the Sky Mall catalog.  I love looking at the bizarre assortment of novelties they expect people to buy.  But one thing actually caught my eye.  Garden gnomes decked out in your favorite football team's attire.  I love gnomes!  I mentioned this to Jerry in passing one day.

As Valentine's Day approached, Jerry kept trying to get me to guess what he had found for me.  Usually he drops hints, but I couldn't think of anything.  He got me this.

I cried a little out of happiness and hormones.

Jerry is tough to find presents for.  Really tough.  Stealing a page from the Book of Cliches, I made him him this.  (Don't read to closely.  There may be a grammatical error or two on the card.)

If you are wondering why the hearts aren't red and pink, it's because Jerry's favorite color is bluc.

And here's our traditional photo in front of what I feel like we can safely call our holiday tree.

You make me smile! Your holiday tree matches my forlorn holiday decor that has yet to retire to the closet.
