Love Day

Valentine’s Day has always been a special day for James and me.  This year, we celebrated 11 years together.  We began dating 11 years ago, in high school, at our school’s Sweetheart Dance.  Here we are, 11 years later, still going strong!

James surprised me after my quick little run with some gorgeous flowers.  He spoils me. =)

Later, we went to a movie, then went to dinner in Waldo, at a fun bar and grill called The Well.  We ended up having a great day, I’m a lucky woman to have this man in my life.

Happy Valentine’s Day, James; I love you! ❤

I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!

To My Valentine

Dearest James,

It’s been 11 years since you asked me to be your girlfriend, and let me into your heart.  Now, 11 years later, and almost 4 years of marriage later, I love you more than I thought was imaginable.  Happy Valentine’s Day to my one love.  Photo Oct 25, 10 40 55 AM

Thank you for always being my #1 fan, my best friend, my truest love.  Thank you for showing me what love is.  Happy Love Day, love!



Thursday Thoughts: February 12

The theme of the past week has been SICK.  Last weekend, I came down with a head cold that quickly turned into a chest cold.  I went to the doctor Monday and was told I not only had bronchitis, but also a sinus infection.  Greeeaaaat.

Last weekend the weather was gorgeous.  Gorgeous enough for sitting on the balcony barefooted with Jasper.

Saturday I had a nice run, it was actually warm, sunny, breezy, a perfect spring day.  Saturday evening I started feeling sickish, but brushed it off as allergies.  Then Sunday I woke up to go to the Groupie run, and felt terrible.  I went anyway, hoping to run 9 miles for a long run, and ended up managing 4 miles.  I haven’t run since.  I’d like to run this evening, but haven’t decided yet.  I know my body needs rest, this cold has gone on a long time.

Since I haven’t done much except sleep, rest, and lay around blowing my nose all week, I’ll leave you with a few pictures of Jasper. James caught this picture the other night, his little tongue is sticking out.  Silly Jasper.

Jasper’s favorite new hiding/sleeping place is behind/underneath the quilt rack.  It took James and I a few attempts to find him the first time.  It must be quiet and cool and dark back there, good napping spot.

Jasper has really gotten used to going outside for at least a few minutes almost every day.  Since it’s gotten cold and I don’t feel well, I’ve been letting him out and sitting inside to keep an eye on him.  He’s on to my devious plan of staying inside while he’s out.

This weekend is Valentine’s Day; James and I will be celebrating by going to dinner and a movie (maybe 2 movies!)  Do you have plans?  Happy Valentine’s Day!
