Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day!

February 14, 2009
St. Louis, MO

My husband and I took a quick road trip this weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to pick up a 1973 BMW 2002. It was two years ago on Valentine’s Day when Reggie proposed. Oh my goodness, time flies! As I got in the car ready to hit the road, this beautiful cream rose was waiting for me in the front seat. Reggie said it reminded him of the roses in my wedding bouquet. How sweet! And, of course, I had to photograph it!

We have been to St. Louis before, a couple of years ago. Although it was cloudy and a bit windy on Valentine’s Day, it was cool and sunny on Sunday. We enjoyed dinner downtown, not too far from our hotel, which overlooked the Arch. We had time for some photos of the famous Gateway Arch before it was time to head home on Sunday.

Here is the car that we picked up. Reggie removed some loose parts, especially the grille on the front, and stowed them safely in the trunk. We’ll be able to use parts from this car to fix up our 1969 2002. More on that project in the coming months!

Thank you, Reggie, for a fun-filled Valentine’s Day weekend! Love ya!
