I got it!!!

I got SoldierMan's V-day present today!!

I got the sweetest card in the mail today - oh, it just made my day!! Seriously, the most touching mass-produced card I've ever seen. Very sweet. I want to send him one that says, "Right back atchya!" But it might not come across quite as sweet. :)

It's kind of a big deal. SoldierMan isn't a "card" guy. But I could tell that he spent time looking and thought this one was special, from what he wrote inside.

Here's what it said (both inside and outside combined):

I love you
in so many ways
and for so many reasons...
because you know me
and understand me
like no one else ever could...
because you believe in my dreams
and care about my feelings...
because you make me laugh so hard
and smile so often
because you have a way
of bringing out
the very best in me...
I love you
in so many ways,
and for so many reasons,
but mostly because
you're my very best friend.
Happy Valentine's Day

And he wrote a sweet little note on the inside too, but that's for my eyes only ;)

Enclosed in the card:

This boy knows me so well :)

He knows how to make me feel special. I'm very lucky.
