Oh Valentine’s Day. You come every year whether or not we want you. I’ve never been a huge fan of the Hallmark holiday because I think you should express your love daily, but it is fun to make valentine’s and celebrate with my little family. Here are a few images from the day:
Surprise from Josh:
Valentines for the teachers:
Valentines for Ella’s classmates:
Me actually putting myself together a bit:
Ella’s silly face at her V-Day party:
Ella’s friends (man she looks small in this pictures):
My little valentines:
A little more sibling love because it’s so sweet:
My big Valentine:
Cards from the kiddos (we have no idea what that sign me up part of Ella’s card means):
Perfect end to the night:
I remember watching the sunset over the ocean from the balcony of our bungalow in Belize and talking about what we thought we’d be doing in five years.
I remember saying that my goal was to be able to fit into my wedding dress. Shortsighted much? We had no idea where we’d really be a few years later. We thought maybe we’d have some kids, maybe we’d travel a bit, move to another state or country.
Here we are, five years later.
We haven’t made a big move and there is no way I could zip up my wedding dress right now. We have however, traveled and have two beautiful, healthy babies.
We’ve had some sad times, some mad times, some frustrating times, but more times that have been filled with love and happiness than I could have imagined on that balcony.
I still look forward to Josh coming home at the end of the day, miss him when we have to travel apart, and am 100% sure I picked the right man to spend my life with. These past five years have been pretty amazing and I’m so blessed.
I love you Josh. Happy 5th Anniversary!
