Ronald Reagan ~ March 4, 1983
Dear First Lady,
I know tradition has it that on this morning I place cards Happy Anniversary cards on your breakfast tray. But things are somewhat mixed up. I substituted a gift and delivered it a few weeks ago.
Still this is the day, the day that marks 31 years of such happiness as comes to few men. I told you once that it was like an adolescent's dream of what marriage should be like. That hasn't changed.
You know I love the ranch but these last two days made it plain I only love it when you are there. Come to think of it that's true of every place and every time. When you aren't there I'm no place, just lost in time and space.
I more than love you, I'm not whole without you. You are life itself to me. When you are gone I'm waiting for you to return so I can start living again.
Happy Anniversary and thank you for 31 wonderful years.
I love you
Your Grateful Husband

Right now they are having an end of Summer sale, 15 % off! They also donate 15% to Breast Cancer research, education and awareness! So honored to bring this product to you. Did you know that the American Cancer Society recommends satin to help ease discomfort for chemo patients? Makes sense right....
I didn't list them here, but you can read about the TOP 5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED Satin Hydration Therapy® on the Neero and Anna website. Reason #6, because 15% of all sales go to such a worthy cause.

Here's the deal, Creations of Love is undergoing many changes. Wow, I can't even begin to tell you that it's a "Wednesday Wisdom Romantic Tip" because you already know it's not Wednesday! OK that was suppose to make you smile, (smile please!) So sorry I didn't get a tip posted yesterday, but do enjoy a tip that's good any day the week!
So...it’s sum-sum-summertime; the imagination conjures up beach music, pool parties, barbecues, ice tea and lemonade! Summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors, getting hot and sweaty, indulging by the pool and eating ice cream on a cone. What can be more romantic than thinking about the, hot days and torrid, fun-filled nights that only the Summer can bring?
You don't always have to get-away or wait until Valentines Day to have a hot steamy, torrid, fun filled night. Or wait until after dark either! Turn up the heat during the week, during the day!
Here's an idea....
One day during the week plan an all day romantic soiree at home together. With school no longer in recess, it's the perfect time if you have children because no babysitter needed! Ok here's a few things you'll need....
Whom ever is doing the planning pick up the following items the night before:
2. Make sure you've got all of your mates favorite breakfast foods, (or try the pancake idea below) and don't forget the ingredients for a morning mimosa to have a toast to your love! My personal fave...Sparkling Cider and OJ with a shot of Cranberry juice. Pancake mix for heart shaped pancakes, (heart shaped baking pans...Big Lots or the Dollar Store) strawberries and powered sugar...oh and don't forget the maple syrup! It's going to be a "sweet" morning!
3. Prepare heart shaped pancakes and sprinkle with strawberries & dust with powdered sugar! Pour up the mimosa's. Sprinkle petals on the breakfast tray, (you do have a breakfast tray...right?...of course you do)!
4. Make sure the curtains and blinds are closed so the sun is simply peeking through.
5. Light the candles and voila...spend quality time reverencing each other!ATTENTION: The above soiree will not take place until the kids are on the school bus!! If it's just the 2 of you don't forget to take the day off in advance!!
