Valentine {Golden} Anniversary

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!  Do you go all out and celebrate Valentines Day or do you just look at it as another day?  We have a little of both in our house!  My kiddos, of course, made fun little Valentines for their friends at school and I made them some cute Valentine treats for their lunch today.  And since my hubby has to work today, my boys told me they would be my date and take me out for ice cream later today...I {heart} them!  My hubby and I decided long ago that we don't need to do anything for Valentines Day, but I broke the rules a little this year and got him a little sweet treat from the candy shop :-) 
Ok, enough of my rambling and on to today's card!  My husbands aunt and uncle are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend...what an amazing milestone!  They are the kindest people you will ever meet and I am sad we won't be able to join them for their celebration, but I will be sending them this card...
