Happy Heart Day
Today is our first Valentines Day as a family!
John and I have spent 9 Valentines together our first one was back in 2004. We can remember how we celebrated almost all of them. But out of all of those years today has to be my favorite Valentines Day yet! And yup, you guessed it, it is all because this is our first Valentines Day with our little princess. Sure, Josselyn has no idea what is going on, except for the fact that she has been dressed up like a baby doll in fluffy pink & red tutu's these last two week, but having her around just brightens up every holiday. There is something so special about this being our 1st Valentines Day as a family of 3. Let me remind you that Valentines Day is not just for couples. It is about taking a special day to show a little extra love & appreciation to everyone you love whether it be a husband, wife, son, daughter, mother, sister, brother or friend. Growing up I loved loved loved Valentines Day. My Dad always expressed his love by showering us with gifts :) Every Valentines day all of us kids woke up to a basket full of valentine candy. when I became a teen my basket of candy was upgraded to a huge box of nuts & caramel See's Candy (just like my mom) Anyways, those memories are very precious to me & I can not wait to watch John spoil his little princess as she gets older. This year Josse still came out pretty good for a 6 month old who is completely unaware of this holiday. Yaya got Josse some cute valentine books, a new dolly & tons of new teething toys! And then I am sure it is no surprise to you all that I did add couple new red & pink bows & flowers to Josselyn's hair bow collection lol. I must say that Josselyn is not the only spoiled one. John made sure to spoil me too today even though I told him NOT to. I received the prettiest red roses, my favorite chocolate covered strawberries from Shari's Berries & a fabulous over sized rose gold watch from MK. I pretty much feel like the luckiest girl alive. I have an amazing husband & the most precious little baby. This will be one Valentines Day I will never forget!
