Smell the Roses


Red Rose

Mr. Heart surprised me us with a special Valentines Day.
Dinner at my favorite restaurant,
the kind of restaurant we only go to on very special occasions.
This Valentine’s Day was extra special because not only did he surprise me
but also
my mom, our daughter and her husband.
We had a FAMILY Valentine’s Day and it was the BEST!
When we arrived at the restaurant, these beauties were waiting for me…

Valentines Day Roses

So today, I’m taking time to smell the roses!

Valentines Day

What did you do for Valentine’s Day?

Hope it was full of love!



  1. Sounds like a very blessed Valentine's Day! Your roses are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What lovely photos Cindy! And what a special husband you must have!! I had to smile when you said you went to dinner with your family. There was a time when I thought Valentine's Day was a 'couple's only' holiday, but now that I'm a bit older and wiser, I think it's a day to share with those we love. Plain and simple. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I so appreciate it and hearing your thoughts has been really helpful! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hi Cindy! I just commented and it didn't show up so I'll try again. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting. I SO appreciate it.

    Your pictures are so lovely, and you must have a very special husband! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. We dont go out on Valentines Day too crowded. We go out a week later.
    My husband bought me the most biggest bunch of roses ever. 42 Roses for 42 years of marriage! I wish he hadnt because they dont last. But they did come with a pretty vase I can keep. I think he spent some of his bonus pay, AWWW


  5. What a sweet Valentine's Day you had. So special that he did this! The roses are beautiful and look lovely in front of your drapery. Have a wonderful weekend, Cindy!

  6. You had a lovely Valentine's and your hubby was a real prince!! Those roses are stunning! We too stayed in and had a lovely evening with Chinese take out in the table of my post. Enjoy your weekend, pretty lady.

  14. Hi Cindy,
    Sounds like you had a super sweet Valentines day........so nice to get to spend it with your family, and your roses are gorgeous, I just love roses, course, I never met too many flowers I don't love really.......lol
    Loved all your pretty pictures too, and so glad you had such a special day.
    Smelling the roses is definitely a great thing to do, cause when we slow down we see so many neat delights the
    Lord has in store for us, like leaves blowing off a tree, as we are just driving along. That was my one of my delightful sightings this morning. lol

    Have a great Sunday hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  15. Hi Cindy,

    That does sound like the BEST Valentine's dinner, for sure. What a sweet thing for your husband to do! Your roses are gorgeous, and your photography in this post is FANTASTIC! (I always notice photography) :) I'm glad you had such a special evening with your loved ones.

    Visiting from Seasonal Sundays -- have a wonderful weekend!


  16. What a wonderfully dear Valentine you have!

    Thank you SO very much for linking up your Valentine goodness!

  17. Taking time...I think we were having similar thoughts today. Smelling the roses is what we should allow ourselves to do each and every day.
