My Forever Valentine

Some of the decor from our wedding, but I thought it was appropriate for today :)

Okay, by now everyone is burnt out on reading about Valentines Day. So discontinue if you please, I don't mind.

Adam and I met almost 2 1/2 years ago. Almost a year of that has been spent in marriage. Today, though, I can honestly say that this Valentines Day topped the last two.

Our first, we spent dancing/stargazing in his Grandma's backyard. We exchanged notes and lots of giggles.

Last year we just did cards. Plain and simple. Wasn't great, wasn't bad.

This year, we went all out. It was fun.

Before I got married I was a massive Valentines Day hater. No offense to all of the ex's, but honestly Valentines Day felt like an obligation to me. I was obligated to do something cute and they were obligated to give me something awfully cheesy. I HATED the fake sentiments (including the numerous build-a-bears. Honestly, bears are for little kids) and while I was convinced I was in love with every guy I dated, I don't think I ever understood Valentines Day till today.

I woke up an hour early to cook Adam breakfast in bed. Did I whine? Absolutely not. Would I do that for anyone else? HA! Probably not. But it was in those moments that we sat sharing food-colored-red choco chip waffles and bacon that I found bliss. It was silly, especially since it was before 7 AM, but I was genuinely happy. And for those of you who really know me, you know that can be hard for me.

Later, I found a super cute and perfect childesque card that Adam made. It said "I love you thissssssssssssssss much." Of course it was written on a piece of paper between two hands cut out of scrapbook paper. Then he bought me an mini orchid plant. MY FAVORITE flower. Let's just say I was pleased since I prompted him to get me a bouquet. Little did I know that he knew better than even I did.

I love my husband, and today I fell in love again.

First Valentines as a married couple a success?

Heck yeah.

Love, Evi
