Our 2nd married Valentine's Day.
And our 1st Valentine's Day on a tropical island.
To answer many people's questions, YES, they do celebrate Valentine's Day in Grenada. But by celebrate, I mean that the kids know what it is, IGA has one end of an aisle dedicated to Valentine's Day treats, and I found a V-Day card at the stationary store with an envelope that had grease stains on it. This. Is. Grenada.
But ya know what? I kinda like it better that way.
No deliveries of generic overpriced red roses at work, no over the top displays of candies and cupids, just a special day to celebrate my husband without all the hullabaloo.
I spent the morning at our SO "Spread The Love" bakesale where we sold a wide array of beautifully baked treats to raise money for Dorothy Hopkins Home for the Disabled. We made $1,700 EC at the bakesale and it was our most successful bakesale to date.
Josh was busy in labs all morning but found some time to sneak over and buy me a beautiful bouquet of Birds of Paradise. I could get used to flowers like this, forget the roses any day.
|Only $25.00 EC which is $10.00 US dollars people.|
|Looks up to no good doesn't he? :)|
|Baby Deanna has been coming to Limes lately.|
|Loving the cupcakes Miss Julie made for them all.|
|...but you're the only catch for me!|
