~Just a Date On the Calendar~

February 14th is just a date on the calendar.

Yes, the COUPLE WHO ARE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER don't do Valentine's Day.

Because it hasn't been kind to us in the past.

We've had migraines, kids with the flu, been in the hospital, had our car break down, etc.

So, we quit.

{And yet we are still in LOVE!!!}


Then on January 29th a package addressed to the Bear appeared at our front door.


He said I couldn't open it.


After he put the kids to bed . . .


He gave me this:


I opened it to find these:


And through the packaging I saw these:

It was a box filled with love.


And just when I thought my heart was as full as it could ever be, I realized that it understood infinity. And I fell deeper and deeper in love with the most amazing man I have ever known. And again I am reminded how we "just fit."
(And Shannon, when he asked me if I knew which font he used, I did.)

How thoughtful.

Enjoy every M&M, those custom orders are for REALLY special occasions.

I think it is also way cute that he asked if you knew the font he used. Of course you knew.
Cute that he knew too which font you'd like (you did like the font didn't you)? :)

Awww...

We don't do much for valentines either. We've just been too poor to do much. But that's okay. We've got each other!
