WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #538

Thank you Joyce.

1. What does love mean to you? 

I'm going with the Urban Dictionary:

"The act of caring and giving to someone else. Having someone's best interest and wellbeing as a priority in your life. To truly love is a very selfless act."

2. Is love blind? 

I do believe it can be in some situations. 

3. How do you remember Valentine's Day as a kid? Do you have any special plans for the day this year?

I believe I remember decorating shoe boxes to hold the cards from my schoolmates. 

No special plans. I have bowling today and shopping afterwards. Maybe we will order in some food. It has never been a good day to go out to eat because it is so crowded everywhere. 

4 Are you a fan of the movie genre known as 'rom-com'? What's your favorite (or one of your favorites)?

Yes!!! It is so hard for me to come up with a favorite. I'm going to name a few older ones like "When Harry Met Sally", "You've Got Mail", "Sleepless in Seattle" and "While You Were Sleeping."

5. What's something you recently put your heart into? 

I'm going to go with the downsizing of my Christmas decorations. It was not easy on my heart. 

6. Insert your own random thought here.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GABBY!
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH
LOVE, MOM AND DAD

We will see Gabby on Saturday!
(This was from Adam's 45th celebration in January)

Happy birthday to your daughter-in-law! I'm glad you're able to go to bowling this week. Have fun!

Happy Birthday to Gabby, and Happy Valentines day to you. I too did the decorate the shoe box, and take little valentines to school and put them in the boxes.
I liked all the movies you named but had no idea they are rom-com or what that even means. they are so much better than what they make these days. those were movies that told stories.. and ones that we could enjoy.

Happy Birthday blessings to Gabby!
I don't recall having shoe box "post offices" in grade school; rather, we'd all decorate and hang white bakery bags from the chalkboard.

My favorite rom-com is probably "10" -- back from 1979!

I like the Urban Dictionary's definition..I'll go with that.
Yes I do believe love can be blind and can be a serious "wake-up call" when the eyes are opened.
I remember making shoe box things for valentines and having to sign a gagillion little cards for my class mates.
We may go out to a hamburger place that's having a special couples order.
2 Squeeze burgers, 1 large fries, 2 beverages for $24.00..that's pretty inexpensive nowadays. We love the owners of this Mom and Pop restaurant.
I plead ignorance..What's rom-com?
I like the old movies since we rarely go to them any more.
Wishing your Gabby a very happy Birthday too.

Happy Birthday to Gabby.
Valentines day was my dad's birthday so we always celebrated that. Other than that it's never been a big deal kind of holiday

Happy Birthday to Gabby. I'm wondering if she thinks it is a plus or a bonus to have a Valentine's Day birthday? Happy Valentine's day!
