  1. I visit his blog, too ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    That was quite cute, btw! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I always like learning about other couples and hearing about how they met, and what their dynamic is. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Of course he's the 'neat freak,' those dirty dishes are going to haunt you forever. Eat chocolate, drink wine, and celebrate this Hallmark holiday.

  4. Aww... I was going to use this for my Tuesday quiz, but now that you've answered... the point is moot. Love how you met. That's a novel, dear. Happy Valentine's Day. Enjoy your day. Kizzes.

  5. Happy Valentines Day, you two love-birds!

  6. Thanks for sharing, anne marie in philly. I enjoyed learning a little more about you and arteejee.

    1. stick around, kid. you'll learn more than your EVER wanted to know!

  7. thank you for playing - I see you edited away the photo.

    1. we don't take pix of ourselves. privacy and all that jazz.

  8. Id answers these, but don't know what to base them off?!?!?!?!

    I hope you two are streaming up the windows for us isolated singletons. Do me proud Hot Mama.

  9. I lowkey love that you met through a personal ad, that he can cook and that you are five years older. Yes!


    1. pre-internet days. in his personal ad, he mentioned that he liked monty python; THAT was my buying point.
