A day to celebrate those you love.
I used to not enjoy Valentine's Day so much.
But then I got a husband!
And now...well, I love this holiday!
Here are all the cards and candy that I bought for the kids, set up on our kitchen island, looking pretty and festive....just seconds before it all was devoured :)
Aria is looking pretty in her new heart-shaped glasses!
And she loved her chocolates!
We got busy making cookies....
And later that night, I walked into my bedroom and this is what I found:
bath water running, candles glowing, soft music playing...
Rich treated me to some quiet time relaxing in a hot bath, followed by a 30 minutes massage. Oh yea, and I got a card, too! Nice.....
And this candle....we've had this candle since Valentine's Day 1997. I took Audriana shopping with me to pick out a gift for Rich, and this is what she picked out. She was just 4 years old and although it wasn't what I wanted to get for him, I didn't have the heart to tell her no. So, I bought it. And just 3 days later is when we had our accident and Audriana was so hurt. Looking back, I am so glad I let her pick out this candle. We light it every Valentine's Day :)
