I Heart My Hubby.....Unconditionally!

Monday, February 14, 2011

Today is Valentine’s Day and as I mentioned in a previous post I LOVE this holiday! I know that people say that everyday should be Valentine’s Day but let’s be realistic……it isn’t! Sometimes the everyday routines of life can get in the way of showing the ones you love just how much they mean to you. My hubby and I usually plan monthly date nights but during the months of January and February he works a lot of late nights and on some weekends. During this busy time we only catch quick kisses in the early morning as we rush off to work and update each other about our day through emails and quick conversations as we doze off at night. This has been the procedure every year around this time for almost as long as we have been together so we are used to it. Although this isn’t an easy time for either one of us we make it work because we understand that the responsibilities of life can sometimes get in the way of romance.

However, Valentine’s Day falls right in the middle of this chaotic time and every year no matter how busy we are we make sure we plan a few hours just for ourselves. This year since Valentine’s Day is on a Monday we planned to celebrate on Sunday when we will both be home. Our 14-year old daughter decided to plan a romantic evening for us. (l.o.v.e that girl!) She decorated the house with rose petals and candles and cooked a delicious 5-course meal, which she served with a beautiful smile. Over dinner and wine my hubby and I talked, laughed and spent some much needed quality time. One thing that keeps our marriage unbreakable is that we both know that it is not about the amount of time we spend with each other, it’s about how we spend the time we have. We know that life can sometimes be hectic and chaotic but one thing that remains strong and steadfast is the foundation that we have built our marriage on! Isn’t it great that there is a day reserved just for celebrating that?

So today I want to tell my hubby that I love him unconditionally and thank him for always loving me unconditionally!

That was sweet of your daughter. I don't have a
Valentine this year and that's okay. I'm much more of a birthday person anyway.

I'm glad you two were able to celebrate and that you still want to. Many couples don't.

You are so right about what you said. It is the quality of the time spent together that makes the difference and not the quantity. Good for you guys!

You look GREAT in that picture! NIce t-shirt. I bet not seeing each other a lot this time of the year is hard on the entire family, but taking time to enjoy each other for Valentine's Day makes a huge difference! Happy Valentine's Day!

That is absolutely beautiful! Healthy love is beautiful love and you two seem like you have it. Your daughter knows it too! That was so very thoughtful what she pulled off for you two. "Happy belated Valentine's Day" to you!

Thanks for sharing a positive not about your marriage and Valentine's day from a different perspective. Giving us single girls hope and that 5 course meal cooked by your 14 year old daughter says that her parents are phenomenal!
