love & hearts

So this was the week of love :) I think Valentine’s is a fun time to give people treats and let them know they are sweet!

It’s not the only day Brent and I attempt to spoil each other, though it’s kind of like an expected day.

We told each other we wouldn’t spend much and neither of us really wanted/needed anything. We went to dinner last Friday night to avoid the crowds on Monday. Here we are then…

I got Brent a fun, small gift…

It’s a 2011 Boston Terrier calendar. He can put it right at his desk. I ordered it from African Grey. SUCH cute stuff.

On Monday, this conversation happened between Brent and myself. Pretty funny.

The man does know that one of the keys to my heart is food, good food. He went and picked up a few of my favorite things and brought them home for dinner. Yes, we shared. Yes, I ate leftovers the next day. It was all so good. We had chocolate geateau, fillet w/ asparagus & wasabi mashed potatoes, lobster bisque, sun-dried tomato & jalapeno risotto & sushi. Not pictured – yummy homemade bread & vino. I figured why not make it a night to indulge after I opened all of the below.

While I was anxiously waiting for Brent to get home, I was thinking about how it was our ninth Valentine’s day together. Last year was by far the worst Valentine’s day as we had just found out about Cohen’s heart. So, I kind of have that on my mind this February as well. Anyways, we’ve been together nine years this September and married for five years this October. I realized I hadn’t posted pictures from our third and fourth anniversary. I created a quick post here and placed it in 2009. Soon, I’ll add in the small anniversary recap for 2010 even though it mostly includes pictures of my then newly cut bangs :)

Here are our past four wedding anniversary days. All October 28th, of course. 





And because February and hearts, and well, all things heart will always mean this to us….

Cohen has been a precious little member of heaven 8 months today.

Thank you for a wonderful Valentine’s & February, @lifeofbrent.

I hope you all had a fun week of love and sweethearts.

    You two are so cute. I love the texts and oh my yummy food!

    We spent Valentine's in ICU while Owen had a speedy recovery from his 3rd open heart surgery. Hearts were on my mind for sure.

    I can't believe it's been 8 months since Cohen's heart was made perfect.

    I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day because you totally deserve it!

    When I read "My baby's not eating that", my heart skipped a beat, I thought you were announcing you were pregnant. But then you raved about sushi, and I thought hmmmm maybe I was wrong.

    At any rate, sounds like a fun Valentine's day. Your husband seems like a sweet guy. And as always, I love seeing pics of sweet Cohen.
