Something I MUST share with you...

So you might remember me saying that we really don't celebrate Valentine's day at our house.  Chris is not a big fan of the "Hallmark holiday", which is perfectly fine by me.  I, personally, think you should show/tell the person you care about how much you love and appreciate them everyday.  BUT...despite what he told me, despite what he said to others, despite his better judgment even... he ended up bringing home a dozen pink roses for me:



Awwhhh... are they not just absolutely gorgeous?  Seriously, he could have let the day go by with nothing, it would not have been a big deal to me, but instead...my baby thought to himself:  "hmmmmm...maybe it's not about the holiday, maybe it should just be about doing something nice for Jenn."

Well, there you have it... lesson learned:  Even the most cynical man towards Valentine's day can surprise you!!

But he also stood true to his principles, which I admire! He didn't support Hallmark - he supported YOU. Those flowers are gorgeous!!!! Is there a woman on earth who wouldn't rather have flowers than almost anything else?? Lovely! Kudos to Chris.

I'm a romantic at heart. We, too, think of Valentine's as a "Hallmark holiday." However, there's a lot to be said for a guy who brings you such absolutely gorgeous flowers. Rock on, Chris.

I LOVE this! I too think there's too much hype/pressure around the holiday and am always relieved when other people admit feeling the same. But still - a dozen pink roses?!? Yes please!

I get a pass for Valentine's Day because our anniversary is later in that week. I swear I didn't plan it that way.....okay, maybe a bit;)
