Valentine's Day!!!

So, I love Valentine's Day- I really do. Growing up, my family would go all out to make it special. My parents would buy each other the coolest heart-shaped boxes filled with chocolate, and then use use them as decorations for the following years. (We had everything from furry, felt-covered heart boxes to denim ones- it was great!) They would also give us kids some wonderful treats, as well as an awesome breakfast- and that was just the beginning of the day. We would often recieve gifts at school, like flowers or other things, and then have a fantastic Valentines Day dinner later that night. My parents felt it was one of the most important holidays, and wanted to make sure that we felt loved. And by the way they treated us, we always did. :)

So, this year was my first Valentines Day married to Brandon, and it was the most amazing day ever. With a husband like mine, how could it not be? :) He made me an elaborate and yummy dinner with his friend, bought me some beautiful pink roses, and just treated me like a queen all day. I bought him the biggest heart-shaped box of chocolates that I could find, and put together a massage kit for him. We also had a Valentines Day breakfast of blueberry muffins and apple cider, which was a tradition we carried on from our wonderful Valentines Day last year. I love Valentines Day, and I have a feeling that they are only going to get better and better! :)


  1. Awww- happy valentine's day! And I love how Brandon is holding a ketchup bottle the way you think most people would hold the Martinelli's sitting on the table. ;)

  2. I agree - that's a fun photo! What a sweet day. Love your traditions already.

  3. Hey you! I'm so glad that you posted a comment so that I could find your blog. How have you been? I haven't read your blog yet, so I don't know what you've been up to.

    I'm working for a law firm right now doing all kinds of things. Today I started working on a big media law case.

    You should come visit us this fall! You two could even stay in the apartment by yourself sometime between August 9-18th if you wanted, because we won't be here those days. It would be a fun vacation :)
