My Forever Valentine

I've always really liked Valentine's Day. My mom made a fun celebration out of it every year. We had an awesome scavenger hunt and had to figure out riddles to get to our final prize (usually candy.) She taught us to celebrate love. Family love, friendship love, romantic love.. it should all be celebrated.

Josh and I don't make a huge deal out of Valentine's Day. I'm not sure why, we just have never made it out to be a bigger deal than it is. We try to show love to each other year round. We go on dates regularly (one perk of the whole not-having-kids-thing) and we get little gifts and surprises for each other on more than just holidays and birthdays. I'm not saying that to be all "We're better than everyone else who makes a huge deal out of Valentine's Day!" Because we absolutely are not. I think it's great that there is a holiday to remind couples of their affections for one another. I think we can all agree that it can be easy to forget. It's just our philosophy on marriage.

Anyway :-)

On Valentine's Day 2008 we went out to dinner and I was secretly hoping he would take me to look at engagement rings....

He didn't. haha. Silly me.

Valentine's Day 2009 he painted a poem on the wall in the basement. He left it up to me to find it. It took me a very. long. time. It makes me smile every time I go to the basement (which is good because I usually go down there to clean up cat poop and could use a smile)

It will be written there forrrr-eh-ver.
In 2010...

Houdini holding a card. When I say "holding" I mean, I set the card next to him right before he ran away but I caught this picture before he did :-)

I was given a single yellow (friendship) rose dropped off at my work on Friday

A single white rose (purity) was handed to me on Saturday...

A red rose (love) handed to me on Sunday

and daisies waiting for me at work on Monday

All together now!

It's true, I love him.

P.S. Does anyone else have a difficult time posting blogs? I'm always accidently posting them, then deleting them, and then rearranging the pictures (which takes quite a while) and then adding spaces in the paragraphs...... 10 years later.... I've got a post!
