Valentine's Day

This year Valentine's Day fell on a Sunday.  The day started off with an early morning, waking up at 6:50 after getting home so late the night before was rough!  But I still managed to make it to church for band practice on time.  After singing at church Josh and I headed home to relax and enjoy some free time.  He napped while I watched some movies on TV, it was SO relaxing.

Josh left for a minute and came back with something behind his back... We had already done "gifts" so I didn't know what he was up to.  It turns out that before we had decided on what to do for one another he had already gotten me something else.  He picked out this absolutely gorgeous turquoise necklace for me.  It's become one of my favorite stones and it couldn't have been more perfect.  It was just a coincidence that it went so well with the dress I was planning to wear that night!


After a while we got up and got ready to go out.  My grandparents were in town for the evening so we made our way over to my parent's house to see them before heading to dinner.  I love seeing them, I just wish it could have lasted a little longer. :)

We then headed out to our dinner date at the Keg.  Josh had been before several years ago but I had never been.  We usually go to a steak joint for our big dinners and wanted to try something new.  The wait wasn't too terrible, considering they don't do reservations, and we were soon sitting in our big booth getting ready to order.  We both had the fillet mignon- it was a great cut of meat but some bites tasted a bit citrusy.  It was nice to get out and try something new and spend some quiet time with one another, but I don't think we'll be going back any time soon.

After dinner we went to visit Josh's parents for a while.  We even got to see Jamie and Kenneth for a bit, too!  Steve and Marsha were so thoughtful and gave us a very sweet Valentine's Day card.  Before heading home we stopped by my parent's house one last time to say hi to my parents/sister and say goodbye to my grandparents. 

The day was very busy and full but I was able to spend it with the people that mean the most to me, my husband and my family... and for that I am so thankful.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day, yes it may just be a made up holiday to get people to buy cards, candy and flowers... but I hope that you took the time to tell each and every person you love how much they mean to you.  Love is not just something to be celebrated between a husband and a wife, or a boyfriend and girlfriend, it is something to be celebrated for each and every relationship in your life.  So to each person in my life, thank you for your constant love and support... I love you all very much!
