Thursday was the annual celebration of love, and this Valentine’s Day was made special for a local business owner.
Enrique Saldaña was surprised by his wife Thursday morning when he found his car covered with balloons and love notes written by his wife Janett.
Saldaña said his wife had some help from his niece and daughters decorating the car. He said she took the time to write on each of the heart-shaped sticky notes.
“She told me I could take off the balloons, but the notes had to be removed by the wind,” Saldaña said.
Saldaña’s vehicle was noticed by other cars on the road to work. He said another car sped up to reach him and recorded his car with a mobile device.
Saldaña said he and his wife have been married for 17 years and have been together for over 20 years. He said the gesture made him feel very good.
“Janett has done something special for the past 17 years and I have a feeling there will be many more,” Saldaña said.
