Love Day

Valentine's Day holds a special place in my heart, not only because it's a day to celebrate love, but also because it is the day that I first met my love. Exactly 3 years ago today, Jamie and I had our first date. We have basically been inseparable ever since. It's odd, because 3 years really isn't that long, but it feels like it's been this way forever. I think I was pretty lost before Jamie came along. It feels good to be found. Every year around this time I think back to our first meeting, and it always brings a smile to my face.

We got a great Valentine from Elise this morning - she slept until 8:30! :) We gave her a gift from us and all snuggled in bed for a few minutes this morning before Jamie had to head up to the school for the last day of the 100-Inning Game fundraiser. Elise and I had a more leisurely morning at home and arrived at the field a bit later. We were just in time to watch the last game before the lunch break and enjoy the BBQ. I chatted with Trish and Mary for a bit and Elise got to play with her friend Drew. It was nice to spend the day together enjoying one of Jamie's favorite! I'm learning to love it, because I love him. ;) I brought my camera with the intention of getting some pictures to share, but the rain showed up before I took any and cut our day short. No worries, though - the season is just beginning and there will be plenty of time for pictures!

We are having a nice, quiet evening at home tonight. Mom and Dad are having Elise spend the night with them, so I am sure we will incorporate some candlelight into our evening. I got Jamie some golf balls to go with his new set of Callaway clubs and a cookie cake (I know, it's not romantic, but it's what he likes). He got me this teapot along with this tea in a decorative storage tin. It's a "blooming tea", which means as the tea steeps, it opens into beautiful flowers, which you can see through the glass teapot. I love it! I've had my eye on it for a while, and it's very sweet that he remembered. As it turns out, this is great weather for a nice cup of hot tea - thunderstorms and all. It's also great snuggling weather, and we are making the most of it!

Happy Love Day. I hope everyone finds the kind of love we have found in each other.

What a wonderful way to express your love. I feel the same way as my Hubbby and I had out first date 9 years ago on Valentine's Day.
