Valentine's Day

As the years have gone by, Daniel has certainly gotten a tab better about remembering about holidays, birthdays, and special occasions before the day of! The night before Valentine's day he was getting the kids into bed and for some reason I thought he was coming to bed too. I was so tired that I fell asleep before realizing that he didn't. He decided to stay up and he and my brother made chocolate covered strawberries, tangerines, and vanilla wafers. He even delicately placed them around one of my nicer plates. He came to bed at 3am, don't feel too sorry for him. He finished at one and decided to play games until 3! His gift was thoughtful and simple! He didn't spend more money than it cost to buy the strawberries! We had the cookies, the tangerines, and he used chocolate chips! I love this man! We have been together almost 7 years and the last couple have been very challenging...VERY challenging. But because of the trials we have had in these last couple of years, I can TRULY say that I have fallen in love with him again and that I love him more today than I ever have!

And Those of you wondering what I got him for Valentine's Day...lets just say that my gift was not as thought out and simple. It was what he wanted though!

Little D brought me a cupcake from school as a Valentine's gift, with half the frosting licked off! And he also made me a beautiful card at church with tons of purple hearts because it is my favorite color! I am truly blessed to have suck a wonderful family! I love them so much and I cannot wait for it to grow!
