Happy Valentines to you! {hug}

Happy Valentines to you! {squeeze}

H-a-p-p-y Val-en-tines dear ---- {kiss}

Happy Valentines to you! {hug}

{sang to the tune of Happy Birthday}

This was how I woke up my boys today... they moaned.. and groaned... .. but indulged me.

My husband surprised me with a bouquet of flowers.
The story behind the yellow roses in the bunch is:

On my 18th birthday he gave me a single yellow rose with a card. (Cuz we were TOTALLY just friends! totally. He had a high school girlfriend and I had a high school boyfriend, but we were in college and would study and hang-out together.)

So ... 5 years of just being "friends" we start dating and were quickly married and soon after had a baby. (The quick version of a very long courtship!) Whenever he buys me flowers he always adds a few yellow roses in the bouquet in honor of my first yellow rose. :0)

I think it was on our first anniversary/or when our first child was born... I can't remember the days are so close together... but he bought me a bouquet of all yellow roses and people made comments like, "I hope you guys are a little more than 'friends' you're married with a child!" - "not very romantic"... etc... but it is.. when you know the inside story.

Now the drum -roll....
