A Sweet Day

Valentine's Day is especially sweet this year.  We're in the process of finishing our home sale in Omaha and enjoying the feeling of our new home being PERMANENT.

The kids have talked about nothing but pillow pets since Christmas (can you imagine? Our home had NO PILLOW PETS!) so were gifted this morning with their very own pillows/pets. Excitement, pure joy. There were also gifts from my parents, more excitement. And waffles! On Valentiney paper plates!  MORE EXCITEMENT!

Then everyone was off to school/work/the daily routine. But maybe with a slight spring in our step.

I think that's what I like most about the little holidays, and the big ones. It's a day to change the routine, even if just a little. A day to point out the each other - hey, I really like you and the life we share together.

For the Hubs and I, a small token shared between friends, spouses, partners. An awesomely cheesy 80's compilation CD for me and some chocolates for him.

Hey Hubs - I like you and the life we share together. SO MUCH.

What could be better than that?!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love new bloggy pals! Now I need to go look up pillow pets, I'm so behind the times:)

I'm glad to see (by Gypsy's comment) that I'm not alone in not understanding the pillow pet reference.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's to your family! I knew what pillow pets were, but double checked to make sure! I do like the little change in routine too...last week we had breakfast for dinner which caused great excitement.

It is a good day to think about it all--love, marriage, life---Happy Valentine's Day (a little late!)
