Show us your Life--Valentine's Dates and Ideas

So this Friday's Show Us Your Life is dedicated to Valentines!! I have learned that you either love or hate this day. Personally I love it! Even when I was single I loved. Its a day to remember that if you are single...you would rather spend the day that way than with someone who didnt make the day special. {make sense?? it does in my head...hah}

When I think back on the past Valentine days one that sticks out the most was two years ago. Aaron and I had gone through some things and we took about a 6 month break. However we ended up getting back together around Valentines.....AND did he suprise me ever. Just when you think someone doesnt know how to show their genuine side or compassionate huge heart....HE DID! First I walked in to a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers!A mixture of Daisies {My favorite} he could not have done better on the flower choice. Then to my gift. By this time we had been dating for 2 yrs and I had never received ONE card from him. Silly I know but im a card/letter person....I LOVE THEM! So proceeded to read one of the sweetest cards ever. Just reading his words...the ones he chose to write me...made me look at him in a completely different light! So then I opened a box and there was a "rubber band" like bracelet with a note. The note went something like this...."This bracelet is to remind you of our love...etc....." So I smiled pulled it out and said Thank you! I really was Okay with a rubber band bracelet bc of all the loving things he said and allowing me to know a deeper side of him. Then he grabbed the box and removed the square cotton and there it was!!! A David Yurman pouch. I dont remember much more than screaming and getting really excited....This is what I got.

The 5mm pearl bracelet. I had wanted one of these for while but NEVER asked for it. Aaron did this all on his own...I never imagined he would get it....not that he couldnt but I just figured he didnt realize how bad I wanted one. Not only did he get the exact one that I wanted he even got the one with diamonds set behind the pearls. THANK YOU THANK YOU Aaron!! So that is the one Valentine that I remeber constantly...every time I look at my wrist.:)

This Valentine's I told Aaron instead of spending money at some pricey restraunt I wanted him to cook! He is an amazing cook! He always makes me chocolate covered strawberries so Im sure Ill be getting a few. As for dinner I told him to suprise me. I helped him a bit and told him a yummy pasta would be good and a wedge salad with his homemade dressing. Other than that I want to be suprised. Ill let yall know how he does. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Heart day!

Aww he's a keeper. I love hearing sweet stories like this. I've always just been kind of eh about Valentine's Day even when I've had someone. My hubs and I are going to church, seeing the V-day movie, and going to dinner. I can't wait for the movie, I hope it doesn't disappoint.
