A Valentine's Hodgepodge

A Valentine's Hodgepodge, I love it!  I love Valentine's Day, it's all about love and hearts and what's not to like about that.  And, then throw in some HP questions and that's like "icing on the cake."

1. When's the last time you had a heart to heart talk with someone? A change of heart? Experienced figurative 'heart failure?'
I had a heart to heart just yesterday morning with a dear friend.  Now, was it ultra serious no, but, nonetheless, heart to heart.  And, I often have heart to heart conversations with close friends and family.  That's what friends and family are for.  As to having a super serious heart to heart with anyone, well, that's been a while.

I can't recall having a change of heart recently, but perhaps I've just forgotten.  Nor can I remember a recent 'heart failure."  Perhaps my memory is failing me but I sure hope not. ~Surely I'm too young for that~

2. Champagne, chocolates, flowers...what's your Valentine pleasure? Any special plans for the day?

Definitely flowers!  And, Hubby surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of pink roses last week that I've enjoyed for an entire week.  He has never liked to give me flowers when I just "might" be expecting them.  He likes to walk in with them at a most unexpected time.  And, that's more than fine with me.
We do not have any plans for today, we neither one care to fight any crowds at restaurants so we'll dine out another night and celebrate.  Shucks, we pretty much celebrate everyday at this point in our lives. ~chuckle!

3. Are you a hopeless romantic or do you fall more in the category of practical and pragmatic? What's a gesture you find romantic?

Oh, I'm definitely practical and pragmatic.  I find thoughtful compliments as romantic and Tommy is good at that.  If I look exceptionally nice (in his eyes) he generally says so.  And, walking in with flowers at a most unexpected time, far more romantic than when expected. ~just sayin'~

4. Do you ask a lot of questions in life or are you pretty content with what you already know?
I'm very content with what I already know for the most part.  I suppose it all depends on the situation because I can be quite inquisitive but in general, I don't have a lot of questions.

5. Your favorite power ballad?
It would be "I Can't Stop This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon from 1984.  Love, love the tune and I imagine I can still sing it word for word.  If you want to hear it, click on this link.

6. Insert your own random thought here.
I thought this was most appropriate for today and everyday.

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Am I right? Happy Anniversary and Happy Valentine's Day. LOVE that sone by REO, saw them in concert and when they sang it, it was magic! My Mr. brought me pink roses last night. Enjoy this day full of love with lots of smiles and hugs!!! xo

  2. I love your last quote! Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Lea!!

  3. I ask a lot of questions so when we meet just be ready ;). My husband laughs because I like to ask questions to everyone I meet. Scott surprised me yesterday with flowers because he likes to surprise me too! xoxo ERIN

  4. Love the way the last quote was done. I will have to listen to your power ballad to see if I recognize it. After the 60's, I really didn't keep up with pop music. Getting the flowers when they are unexpected make them more a surprise! I like that.

  5. Great answers and great quote! I hope you and your sweetie have a fabulous Valentines Day, Lea!♥

  6. I'm with you on receiving flowers for no reason at all. The best kind! We have rarely dined out on Valentine's Day and I enjoy planning a nice evening at home.

  7. Happy Valentine's Day dear Lea. I hope you have a wonderful day. Loved all of your answers. And oh that song...Can't stop this feeling....brings back some good ole memories! Thanks for sharing. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Happy Valentine's Day, sweet Lea! I thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful post.


  9. Roses of any color are wonderful, but pink -- how lovely is that!! Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. Well let's see. I do love flowers, but I also love chocolate...a lot. LOL. I'm very pragmatic and wouldn't say I really "yearn" for more knowledge, but I can ask questions. I'd say my fav ballad is "Your the Inspiration" by Chicago. Love that song. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day, sweet Lea!!! XOXO

  11. My husband loves to surprise me with flowers too, and I agree, that is VERY romantic and thoughtful! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day Lea,

  12. Me too, heart to hearts seems to happen often here. Enjoyed reading your answers.

  13. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy. What’s app contact : +44 7520 636249‬
