It’s Valentines Day and Saturday’s eve…woot woot!

A quick fact about me and the one I love, Keith…..we have loved each other for 11,136 days….962,150,400 seconds….16,036,080 minutes…..267, 264 hours….a total of 30 years 5 months and 25 days!  I can’t imagine spending these days or those ahead of us with anyone else!
