Happy Valentine's Day!

Lover's Day is upon us. This year, I wanted to do something special with my sweetheart.
But that was out of the question.
just had surgery on Friday.
Poor guy.
So, I decided that I would make him dinner.
A combination of his favorites and mine.

Lasagna for Two
Strawberry Cheesecake.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries.
Plus all the treats he could want this week!

So, the question begs the asking...

How did you and your Valentine meet?

Well, Mike and I met in middle school, originally.
We ran track and field together. Kinda.
I ran track, he did field events.
I knew then that this guy was someone special.

I didn't see him for 2 years. We're a year apart in age. When I moved to the high school, it was his Sophomore year. He was in a car accident that year.

The next year, however, my locker was assigned next to his locker, thus we became "locker buddies." Mostly, he called us that so that he could steal gum whenever he wanted.

We were both in relationships that kept us busy that next year, but during his Senior year (and my Junior year) we both ended these relationships and became even closer. We started to casually see each other, spending time together at lunch and between classes and outside of school. Coincidentally, neither one of us wanted anything serious.

So much for that!

Then, one day, he asked me to a date.
A date date.
A real date.
At Chuck E. Cheese.
With his little brother.
Then a movie.

It was interesting, that's for sure.

Fast forward 9 months, and we were engaged.
And married 11 months later.
11 days after my high school graduation.

Now, we're just a few months shy of our 4th wedding anniversary.
And expecting a little one at the end of June.

And I'm more in love with him now than I was on the day we met.
The day we first talked about marriage.
The day we became engaged.
The day we married.

So, this is for all you love birds out there!
Go, and tell you hunny how much and why you love them!
They may already know, but trust me, it's still nice to hear!
