27 Valentine's Ago

Engaged in January 1987, Dave and I spent our first official Valentine's Day together at a military chapel banquet in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Our youth group kids were helping to host it, so surprised me with the name tag above: Connie Patty (almost). I loved it!

It wasn't the first time I'd seen that name written out (yeah...I'd been practicing...ha!)

But to wear it at the banquet where everyone could see it...awww! It made the already good Valentine's Day, an even better one!

Twenty seven Valentine's Days later, I'm still happy to have that name!

My Valentine gets home from the States tomorrow night. I'll be just as excited, if not more, to see him as I was that evening all those years ago!
