I'm sure no one has noticed, but I have been AWOL this week. Lots on my mind and lots to do.
But I wouldn't be doing my duty if I didn't share a valentine post going into this weekend.
I am lucky enough to have three valentines.
But we will probably not being doing anything amazingly spectacular for February 14th this year.
I have always given the boys a little buddy (stuffed animal) which I will do again this year. I scoured (yes, scoured) the mall on Wednesday looking for slippers for Steve since his are falling apart, and when I finally found some at sears, they had to order a different size. I paid them and then got home and found out that for some reason the order had been cancelled on their end...probably because they didn't have the stock after all. So as of now, I have nothing for my Honey.
Last year, Steve spent Valentine's Day performing singing valentines with barbershop quartet and the visited me while I was working, which was pretty cool.
After searching my entire picture folder I can't find a single cute picture of the boys as babies in cute little valentine wear, but I did find a picture that I took of the boys on Aaron's first valentines day, 5 years ago.
I tried to take a picture of the valentine that Aaron made in school and was sent to me in the mail (so sweet) but my NEW camera died already and I am rendered camera-less once again.
So Happy Valentine's Day to those of you who love this holiday, dislike this holiday, or have become indifferent. Spend the day telling those around you that you love how special they are to you. That's what I plan to do.
Have a great weekend.
