Valentine's Day

It's no secret that my Valentine's Day was spent at my client's corporate headquarters...beginning at 4 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. 


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...


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}... 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!
