Welcome to Take One of February’s Secret Subject Swap. This week, 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:

My subject is “What was your first valentine like?”  It was submitted by http://www.chewylicious.com  Here goes:

OMG. I started to freak out when I read the prompt…hubby and I really haven’t celebrated Valentines Day in years. Sure we’ve gone out…but it’s always to a place that we have a gift card to and that;s the end of the celebration.  Besides, why be nice to me on just special days…you should be nice to me all year round and vice verse. Though, I do cute crafts with my son…it’s always fun to have holiday fun with my little man.

Okay, now back to my hubby, well I had to dig in some old photos on Picasa Web. Low and behold, I found some good ones. We met at in April 1995, but sadly the earliest Valentine’s Day pics I could find were from 2006. Still you are in for a treat… (Sorry about the date on the pictures…that was way way way back in time when I had a camera for pictures and not a phone…giggle snort)

The couple in these photos….

have been together for 11 years
have been married for 5 years
in three years and four months they would be parents to a true miracle and gift
in six years she would be posting about these pictures that represented a lifetime ago

yes. we had the waitress take our photo….ahhh to be young and in love.

first we’ll have serious photos

hubby tying to act tough while still smiling

I had to put a heart over the ladies face behind me, she was looking right into the camera…probably wondering who these weird people taking these pictures are, LOL

this picture still cracks me up

Now we only appear in photos if Dino is in them with us…how times change.

  1. The photos are so sweet. I have a box I haven’t gone through in years. You make a sweet looking couple and now you have your little man! What a fun look back 🙂

  2. I love it! You two are just like us. 🙂 We haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day since the year he spray painted flowers purple for me after not being able to find the right kind of over priced half dead flower to express his love. It’s safer and cheaper this way. 🙂
    I loved seeing pictures of the two of you. So much fun to look back on… photo bomber and all. <3

  3. Happy to find you through the swap. So cool – well, in my case maybe so scary – to dig out old photos! I love the way you put this together! My hubby and I haven’t celebrated V-Day in…well, it’s been awhile – I’m glad I’m not the only one…

Would love to read your thoughts
