Valentines Day 2013

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Sure some people may say that Valentines is a commercialized holiday which sure, I can see that point.

Commercials about buy your wife this diamond and she'll love you forever.
Feeling the need to spend excess amounts of money on chocolates and roses

But I like to think of Valentines as a day to specifically focus on the one you love. 
Sure, we should all be loving our husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, each and every day. And yeah, we'd like to be able to celebrate with romance and undivided attention all year long. But this is life and let's be honest, that rarely happens. We're busy and tired and working and saving our money etc etc etc. Four course meal that take hours to prepare or special, fancy gifts just aren't happening every day. 

Valentine's Day gives us a specific reason, a specific focus, to show those we love how much they really mean to us. And that's exactly what today will be for J and I. This year marks our first Valentines Day as Husband and Wife, something that we'll never experience again and I hope that tonight he knows how much I love him, how blessed I am to have him as my husband and how excited I am to go through life with him knowing I have him by my side.

Our evening will consist of cooking a dinner together that we wouldn't normally take the time to while enjoying each others company and maybe even some snuggling on the couch while dinner's in the oven. There will be:

+ Delicious Sausage Wonton appetizers
+ Ribs with veggies and side salad
+ A few glasses of wine
+ And these bad boy cookies.


I hope everyone has a good Valentines Day filled with love from those you care about most! And of course, I hope there's a little pink and red thrown in there too ;-)
