I have been planning for today for 3 weeks. It’s been a lot of creative thinking and really intently listening to my wife. She was specific on what she wanted to do and gave me some ideas for gifts. This is our very first Valentine’s Day as a married couple and I really don’t want to screw it all up. I have a lot of very secretive plans and of course I’m not going to share them here. Just know she will be surprised at lunch time, also when she first gets home from work, and our evening will be full of romance, an amazing supper, and all night without the boys. That’s when the fireworks will really happen. She already arrived to work to find 2 dozen long stem roses with a handwritten card waiting for her. Also a box of her favorite chocolates and a little necklace and pendant set from me and the boys. She took a Selfie (Isn’t it a Valentinelfie today? Lol) and called me to thank me for being so sweet. I made her breakfast in bed so she wouldn’t have to grab something on the way to work. She loved the prompt and healthy wakeup. Then she treated me to a shower together which turned into something else and we both left for work, happy, and grinning big time Lol I’m telling ya folks, this marriage stuff is the best. It suits me just fine!

I hope she sees the effort behind all of this. I did not go overboard on the gifts. She likes more subtle things. And we already both have everything we need. We both love to shop and are always buying things for each other. I focused mostly on some homemade gifts my boys and Aunt Lindsay helped me with for her office. They will be delivered with her lunch today. And I will be leaving work at 3 to go set up the condo for when she gets off work.

I can’t tell you how excited I am! I hope she likes it. I tried very hard to show her how much she means to me.

Happy Valentine’s day everyone. I hope you have a romantic day and evening with someone very special. If you are alone this year, go out with some friends or find a way to celebrate the single life. I had many a single Valentine’s Day and as long as I stayed busy it was just fine.

God loves you all and I do too!
