Happy Hearts Day!

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

It’s Valentine’s Day! Have you reminded the person you love, that you love them?
I admittedly give slack and do not expect anything on Valentine’s Day from Jon. Our anniversary is not that far away, so I’d rather that be our special day, but the girls love Valentine’s Day and so we do things that include them and help it be a happy family day.

I will say Jon does an amazing job letting me know he loves me each and everyday. There are times that he is the more affectionate one, then there are times I am, but each day we embrace and tell one another we love each other, and each day we try to thank the other person for doing things, even if it’s their “job” to do them, like me making dinner or him doing dishes.

Lately I’ve been the overly affectionate spouse. I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful husband. We have lots of fun together and I enjoy our jokes and quiet times with one another. I love seeing what a wonderful father he is to our two daughters and I love seeing the love they have for him.

I’m also thankful for my two little Valentine’s, without them this day might have just been any other day, but the excitement they have in giving gifts and notes of love is infectious. We’re having a delicious meal tonight and I they have been wonderful in helping to clean up our crazy house. I said cleaning it was a gift to Daddy on Valentine’s Day, but I’m appreciating it too. (We’ve not been home for the past week due to cookie deliveries and activities, so the house was getting pretty chaotic.)

Make sure to tell the people you love, you love them, and do something nice for them.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
