This year I specifically told Trevor not to buy flowers for me this year. I like flowers but I didn't want him sending a fortune on overpriced flowers just because he felt he had to. We don't really buy gifts for each other on Valentine's Day. It's not really my love language. I like kind gestures and spending time. We spent the night before going out for a nice dinner at Cielo's in White Rock. The fact that he called to make reservations and organized babysitting was what spoke to my heart. The chocolate and new pink heart coffee cup was a nice bonus.
I think it's good for our kids to see us celebrating love and marriage.

Here is Oliver concentrating hard on writing his name on his Valentine cards for his preschool friends.
Oliver's loot from preschool. Wow.
Finished the evening with chocolate fondue. My mom's special recipe. The kids skipped the fruit and just ate the chocolate. Probably explains why they both went to bed at 10pm.
I think it was a great day where we loved on others and were loved.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
