New thoughts on an old holiday

I’ve always thought of Valentine’s Day as a holiday for romance. I L-O-ve ROMANCE…just ask my cowboy.

My time spent as a florist re-enforced that thought as I witnessed men desperately trying to impress. I wish I had a picture of me trying to deliver the biggest bouquet – It was just over 4’ tall!!!

This year I saw beyond the roses and romance…

I saw this holiday as a celebration of L-O-ve!!!

What a fun holiday it was because of that change…don’t get me wrong…there was ROMANCE…DSCN1187

That’s off limits to this blog, but it included a beautiful serenade…

More than romance though…a celebration of the love that fills our home ensued in so many small ways…

I so love these glimpses into your happiness :) I'm so excited to see how happy and beautiful you look, and how big and adorable your once tiny baby boy is getting! BUT I do have soo many questions! ...not the least of which is: 'Cowboy' IS a nickname ... right?! haha

Hi Katie - Cowboy is a nickname that has replaced his actual name in our family because he is one inside and out and well at first I was a little uncomfortable with his real name ;)
