Happy Valentine’s Day

“The human heart feels things the eye cannot see, and knows, what the mind cannot understand.” ~ Robert Valett


Good morning, dear friends.  Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope all of you have plans for a sweet day. 

To me, Valentine’s Day is about showing our love to all those we love and hold dear.  So, be sure to tell those special people in your life what they mean to you.  Hug and squeeze them extra tight.  You will always be happy you did. And, so will they.

“The rose  ~ the place of memory.” ~ Elie Wiesel 

Red roses are for many ‘the flower’ of  Valentine’s Day.  I will agree they are beautiful, but, often hothouse roses are not very fragrant.  Most likely, I am spoiled by the glorious fragrance of roses from our garden.  However, many beautiful words have been written through the years about roses and their connection with love. But, in my opinion, none more beautiful than the words of Amanda McBroom.  Sung by, Bette Midler.  Give a listen, and Enjoy ~  “The Rose.”


“As children, we were fascinated by magic, as adults we fear love, at what point did we forget they are the same thing?” ~  J. R. Rogue


Wishing you and all those you love a beautiful Valentine’s Day.  


Avec Amour,

Sandra, a lovely post as always! It is almost midnight at your home, but I hope you and your hubby had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We celebrated with my 88 year old Dad, son and DIL, and our little princess! I have always loved “The Rose” and have sung it a few times. Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend!

A day late, but the sentiment is the same. May you always feel loved.


Sandra, I hope your Valentine’s Day was lovely. I love the quote, and I agree, roses should smell like heaven. Luckily, when we grow our own, they often still do. xoxo

What a beautiful Valentine’s Day post, Sandra.

Lovely thoughts to accompany the photo with its exquisitely fashioned heart. And such a gorgeous red rose! (I too lament the fragrance-less roses that are available now. To me, ‘they’ have squashed the soul of the rose by making it thus. I try to focus on the fact that they are still so very pretty to look at with their red velvety petals.
