Valentine's Day

It's no secret that my Valentine's Day was spent at my client's corporate headquarters...beginning at 4 a.m....as they announced a merger. Needless to say, it wasn't quite as romantic as one would dare to dream, but Brandon made it sweet, anyway. 

Backstory:

See, we've never truly "celebrated" Valentine's Day. Brandon actually called me for the very first time on Valentine's Day when the guy I was semi-dating took me out to dinner on Valentine's Day and then called our relationship off as he dropped me back home. {Romantic, right?! I like to think there was a little divine intervention there.} 

Anyway, we don't know the day we "officially" started dating, so we just say March 1. And then my birthday is April 7, so it was just a lot of holidays in a row. But since we're married, March 1 is out the window in terms of celebrating...but not celebrating Valentine's Day was kind of habit...

ANYWAY:

My handsome husband called me around 10 a.m. and said he was downstairs at my company's headquarters and asked that I run downstairs really quickly. I did, and he had a dozen roses and coffee for me and all of my team members. {Swoon, right?} I told him that bringing the coffee meant more than the flowers. Ha! 


It was quite a feat getting those roses home, by the way. 


Once I finally got home, I felt like I had pulled an all-nighter in college. Heavy eyes, headache, achy body {sad heart}...

...so Brandon cooked dinner {steaks on the stove top, which we will never, ever do again because my entire house smells like fried food...but that's another story for another day...} and we exchanged gifts. 

I win "Crappiest Wife of the Year" award, because I got him a sappy card. He got me said roses, coffees, chocolates and a cute card with this inside: 


I cried so hard. My tears were out of exhaustion, love and pure, "This is the cutest, sweetest gift I've ever seen." It was so much better than anything material! 

I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day and got to spend it with the ones you love!
