In August, Mr. and Mrs. Nash celebrated 60 years of marriage! I am also very thankful to have this lively couple in my life. He travels the country speaking about his book and finances. She dresses beautifully, has the kindest heart, and laughs when she runs into bushes with her new bike. For Christmas, they got each other these bikes and ride around on them regularly! Adorable, no? I sure hope that is me when I am their age!
Enjoy your love this Valentine’s Day, and be sure to treat him or her like they are your absolute world! If you lack a beau in this season of your life, then enjoy the company of sweet friends and family! Happy happy heart day!
P.S. This blog turns two today! Thanks for always viewing and reading! It means so much. XOXO.
