It wouldn't be right to let Valentine's Day pass without some acknowledgement considering it's our first as a married couple--but I've got to be honest, since our November wedding it's been nothing but holidays and all the fuss that comes with them. There was hosting our first Thanksgiving, our first married Christmas and New Year's. Then there was my birthday and next week is Dane's. It's hard enough to keep up with life, let alone a year's worth of holidays in eight weeks. It's even more tough to not let these special days go by without notice or acknowledgement--after all--these special moments all deserve to be celebrated in their own right no matter what their proximity is to each other.
So...we celebrated simply with new toothbrushes (nope, not those fancy ones with 100 settings), I'm talking generic store brand for $1. We are livin' it up, baby.
I fried up heart shaped eggs for breakfast.
...and made some garland for a sweet after work surprise.
I loved on my Tiffany's heart shaped, make-shift wedding band (until we have one made to fit with my custom ring).
and arranged a bunch of carnations into a tightly packed pink pouf of freshness on our kitchen table.
and wished and wished there was more time in the day for us to spend together.
