Happy Valentine’s Day

Remember that card “unsigned” that said, “I LOVE YOU”?
It was so darn simple as kids
It was so darn simple as kids

It’s that time of year again… I do remember as a kid of 8 or 9 and Valentine’s was slightly different and yet…so simple…I remember how special I used to feel on this day. I would bring my carefully chosen and signed Valentines to share with my classmates and the fuzzy feeling I felt in my tummy along with tons of butterflies when someone special gave you a nice card “unsigned” but saying how you are special to him/her…{Heart throb…thump thump…sigh!!}

Moving on to Valentine’s Day and grown-ups…that special day…you know when couples look into each other’s eyes with a twinkle…or with that GaGa look.  It is a time when lots of guys feel the pressure to get something and aren’t “all” sure just what will put that sparkle in his partner’s eyes…or have his partner’s heart melt.


It is a time that some partners just don’t bother and give the excuse that it is “a lot of crap and only to make money”.  Hmmm, okay, I get part of that comment but what about just a little special something…does not have to be an expensive gift or that box of chocolates or the flowers you always forget which one your partner prefers…What if it is not purchased and you show her/him…MORE THAN WORDS to express the love you have for this special person in your life??!!

What about just being more attentive that evening?  You know, like clearing off the dinner table; or folding the laundry (kids clothes) together!

What about having a babysitter stay

Preferably a human babysiter over 14!
Preferably a human babysiter over 14yrs!

with the kids so you can go out for a nice walk…or just go to the movies together after dinner.  Can`t afford that…that`s just fine…then have the kids play at your friend/neighbour`s for 2 hours and you and your partner have a REAL early dinner …tête à tête on the living room rug with candles of course and soft music…ya see, it does not have be much to be turned into something special!

No neighbours but lots of children…have the older children go out for at least an hour or so to a park, a mall, a recreation centre…it may not work Feb. 14th…so plan it for a few days later.

In addition to words…What if you just looked your partner in the eyes and said just how much she/he is meant to you?  Now that wasn’t so bad, was it?  An extra stroke in the small of her/his back…a light touch (minouche)  behind the neck…a little pat on the butt…just little loving nudges that say it all so well, “I love you”.32179_300751003381322_603805519_n

Remember that song  by Extreme “More than words”?  Well, that is one of my favourites and I find it so darn fitting for Valentine’s Day.  Not everyone has the gift of the gab or Blarney; not everyone is a poet and not everyone can afford a gift expensive or not.  But showing your special lady how you feel can mean a lot and the results, believe me, will linger…for a while anyways.

{I still do not know how to embed this lovely video so kindly click on this link…the images speak wonders….the lyrics!  Well, listen and you’ll understand why it’s been one of my favs for so many years}



More Than Words

Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me
‘Cause I’d already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words

Now that I’ve tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don’t ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me
‘Cause I’d already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words

Here are images professionally photographed by a Caroline Michaud who totally knows how to communicate in “more than words”…

I could think of several stories to write about this image…{heart thump}
Can you "see" feel the love...?
Can you “see” feel the love…?

What are things that make YOU feel special?…that make you feel like a woman… like a desired human being in every sense of the word.  I wrote a personal blog a while back on things that make me feel good, that make me feel desired and that make me  truly “Feel like a Woman”…and literally sigh with contentment…feeling like a feather fluttering on your skin or the nice feeling when draping a silk robe on your body…nice, smooth and special, right?

In closing, allow me to share what I wrote in my personal blog…in a slightly edited version of course 😛  

Special things that make me feel like a woman …Sooooooo… add to the list or pick one or two for Valentine’s Day  Loving yourself and making yourself feel good is KEY:)

53348_401761603228304_1176255263_o–         Finding that special sexy dress that makes my body look amazing and shows off the curves in just the right places…

–         those high heels or pumps that make those calves feel firm and allow me to walk with confidence when strutting down the street (or dance floor, club etc.), hips swaying, head up high, shoulders straight…feeling like taking on the world …bonus if my guy is next to me, gently placing the palm of his hand on the small of my back now and then.

–         Walking into a fancy restaurant, dance club or bar with the above outfit and attitude and feeling some eyes notice me as I proudly hold onto the the arm of “my guy”.

–         Dancing with my girl friends and just enjoying the music…not a care in the world…feeling eyes on us which does not stir my curiosity but just adds to my confidence.

–         Nice silk stockings that feel soft on my legs

–         A soft silk nighty hugging my body…

–         A nice feeling after a workout especially feeling my tummy muscles start firming…

–         Soaking in a bubble bath, the bathroom lit ONLY with candles and listening to jazz

–         Having my special person,  put sunscreen on my shoulders…my back…and yup, you guessed it the neck and small of my back feel extra special

–         Swimming in a lake on a deserted beach…nude…feeling light and free

–         Floating on a boat…catamaran …raft……hearing nothing but the ripple of the water and fish tails flapping the water now and then…feeling the soft breeze on my face, through my hair and on my body.

–         Feeling the breeze on a hot summer night on my body…lying on a sandy beach or on a boat…

–         Feeling the palm of  that special person`s hand gently support the small of my back as we walk into a room together

–         Touching the small of my back while dancing or on a slow walk outdoors…

–         Passing his fingers through my long hair…starting from the top of my head, gently going down to my neck massaging the scalp gently, gives me goose bumps just writing this

–         Those special eyes that look me over slowly with some subtlety …eyes telling me I look amazing…worth more than words!

–         Being pulled into his strong arms and kissed (“ardently” the cheeky novels say) on my lips… breathtaking…

–         Minouching /stroking my neck and gently towards the nape of my neck.

–         Watching a movie and gently feeling my guy’s hand cover mine…stroking ever so softly now and then…

–         When talking or watching t.v. or a movie, gently stroking my shoulder or my neck or my hand or my knee or thigh…ever so briefly…that’s telling me that you’re thinking of me …you’re glad to be near me…

–         When among people in a discussion or at a party and my special person looks at me casually and winks…or raises their eyebrows…means so many things 1) This is cool but I’d like to be with you right now 2) miss you 3) won’t be long so we can be together and ….cuddle…take your pick…they are all signs of wanting to be intimate (talking, touching or just holding each other and relaxing)

–         Sometimes, taking me by the elbow to make sure I don’t slip or fall…

–         Feeling his hand around my shoulders when walking, …just feeling his presence…

–         Those are just some things I like…Oh, oh, and lest not I forget…slow slow dancing to soul music…

Happy Valentine’s Day!
