This is from Valentine's Day 1997.
This is the pull out hidden journaling front and back...well, most of it.
This was our last Valentine’s Day celebration together before our wedding the following January. David had brought me tons of roses since our first date, but this was my first dozen roses so it was really special. … I love these photos of us together. I’m pretty sure it was Mama who took them. You can really see how happy we are and how much love we have for each other. That is, if you know that this is smiling for David. I can’t believe how thin I was, how thin we both were! We went to dinner at Montana’s in Gulfport where they had a shrimp buffet. I’m almost certain that after dinner we went to the beach because we went every time we were near it and could make the time.
The card that David gave me that year (Yes, I still have it.) says: For the One I Love So Much, My Special Valentine: My love, my happiness and the greatest joy I’ll ever know is you. On Valentine’s Day, I would give you the world if I could…Instead, I will give you all that is mine to give—my hopes, my dreams, and my love—always my love. Love, Dave. That is where the title of this layout comes from.
Honey, I hope you know that is truly all I want and need. I loved you then and my love has grown every day since. I couldn’t ask for more.
