My perfect Valentine's Day card. . .

I LOVE finding the perfect card for my sweet Steve, and I was fortunate to have found the perfect Valentine's Day card this year. {Not the one that is pictured above!} I mean, I usually love the cards that I find for Steve--I don't settle on one until I find the perfect one. . .but this one is especially perfect! With its simple letterpress design and all of 11 words, it reminded me of a song that is one of our favorites. . .Steve even sang it to me at our wedding reception. . .we were laughing as we tried to remember what he sang at the end of the song. . .I think he said "put you to bed with a little wink" :)

Well, I hope that you too have found the perfect card for your Valentine and I also wish you a very wonderful Valentine's Day! My sweetie is taking me to Richmond for the weekend. {I really wasn't supposed to know that. . .but joint e-mail accounts make it difficult. . .well that, and my nosy self!} I hope you all have a special week!

I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh, all I wanna do is grow old with you

Ill get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh, it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you, kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
I'll need you, feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
Oh, I could be the man who grows old with you

I wanna grow old with you. . .
