Happy Valentine’s Day (and reason #3,456 why I love my husband)
I woke up yesterday with some sort of ridiculous chest congestion, and after church and a quick grocery shop, arrived home in tears because I was having a hard time breathing. I also knew by then that I was getting worse not better, and that I would probably be ruining our Valentine’s Day/7 year anniversary celebration (we’re bumping the second part up a little bit, because we think we’ll probably be a little busy on June 12th 😉 ).
S calmed me down and tucked me into bed with a Vicks VapoRub back massage and a heating pad and I napped while he cleaned the house. Once I woke up, I felt a little better so we went out shopping for a much needed new winter jacket for me. By the time we were standing at the checkout counter, I knew that our fancy dinner out was never going to happen, so S cancelled and made plans for a romantic night in. Dinner was just what I wanted (steak and mashed potatoes), but I crashed so fast that we never made it to the “romantic” part. I was in bed asleep by 9:05.
I had really been looking forward to a night out with S, but his attitude and the way he took care of me all day was almost more romantic than chocolate and flowers. I am so proud and lucky to be married to him, and I can’t wait to see him taking care of our child the way he takes care of me and our furbabies.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of my friends and supporters! I wish you all a day where you bask in the glow of all of the people that care about you. Much love!
