I know, I know, Valentine's Day is kind of overrated. But I'm a girl, and more specifically, a girl that likes flower and chocolate, so we choose to participate. Brandon surprised me last night with roses, bubble bath, bath bombs, and a box of milk duds. All my favorite things! Tonight we are going to see Lego Batman and will likely eat the entire bucket of popcorn. The only thing that would make this holiday even better would be Costa Vida, but I think we'll save that for this weekend. Spread out the love celebration.
We're celebrating this year with a new valentine in our lives. It's hard to not have Carter here, but we're making the most of each holiday with him the best we can. On the first Saturday of the month, we drove up to Logan to make freezer meals with our brother and sister-in-law (I can do a post of those recipes, if anyone is interested!). Before heading to their house, we went to see our boy, and decorated his grave with some Valentine's things. There is a little decoration hanging out of the little bucket, and we have one just like it at our house! I love having duplicates of things, one for him and one for us. It gives us just one more connection to him. We wish he was here, but it's crazy how much love you can have for someone you had too little time with.
Hope you all have a good Valentine's Day, and remember to squeeze your loved ones a little tighter.
