This year was a little different. I don't have pictures to tell the story or a poem to show you, but I will be forever grateful of what I learned this Valentine's Day.
Our Valentine's Day looked a little like this:
Breakfast with my 3 little valentine's. Chocolate sweets from their daddy and I. Kisses, hugs and lots of "I love you's". A Valentine's Day party at Jackson's school with Jason. Lunch with Jason. I broke out my great-grandma's pink table cloth and we dined on a delicious dinner courtesy of Macaroni Grill (and a gift card). Jason and I ended the night with a 2 hour episode of Downton Abby. It was an easy day. Simple. Lovely.....Perfection.
And the greatest thing about it?
February 14th was no different than February 13th....or July 1st.
Not a perfect reality, but who wants that? It's our reality. It was with a grateful and happy heart that I accepted that reality.
