Let's talk about Valentine's Day.
David and I are not very big on Valentine's Day and by that I mean, I am... hello, duh... I'm a girl-it's like in our DNA to be like super sappy and to believe in fairly tale romance, blah blah blah. But I act like it is just another day of the week because he's usually not here (army life) We have barely spent half of our whole marriage together, let alone Valentine's day. This year will not be any different. This school that he is currently in will be sending him to the field for 2-3 days. He will either be home late the night of the 14th or the morning of the 15th. See?! It really is not even much of an issue anymore. I am kind of used to him not being around. (that sounds gloomier than intended)
But he does tend to randomly bring me home Valentine's day candy. He will stop at the store for something and grab up a bag of mini something or others and bring them home to me so that's nice. I guess it's kind of one of our weird little traditions. He does it for other Holiday's too. Brings me home random Holiday stuff.
So anyway, today I wanted to talk about one of my favorite Valentine's day memories...
Many many moons ago... (about 4 years ago to be exact) David was in Iraq for the second time.
I was living with my family (my mom, sister and brother at the time since my other sister was off at school) and it was nearing Valentine's Day. My husband being the super sweet man that he is just straight up asked me what I wanted for Valentine's Day. I of course said nothing and to not worry about it. He had other things to worry about. Then we got to talking about how Mom and Kayla were both single and were feeling a bit gloomy so he surprised them with flowers!! (I know, swoon!) It was really sweet. I knew about it of course, but they had NO idea. He sent Kayla's to her at school and Mom's to her at work. They both walked in the door later that afternoon just smiling from ear to ear.
It was torture keeping this secret from them, but it was too exciting and sweet to ruin the surprise!
Moral of this mini ramble:
Even if your wife says she doesn't want flowers, she totally does. And while you're at it, send some to your mother or sister as well just because! Go send someone some roses by the dozen. GlobalRose.com would be a great place to get em from!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day. I hope you get lots of chocolate and feel super loved and I hope all of your super sappy Valentine's Day hopes and wishes come true.
