Feeling the Love

Although I may be a sap and a romantic at heart, I never totally understood Valentine's Day.  I never understood why we needed one day to let those that we love know that we love them... shouldn't we be doing that every day of the year?!  That being said, this year was the first year that Mark and I have spent together on the actual Valentine's Day and it seriously couldn't have been a more perfect day!!

Friday night was a rough night at work but I wasn't going to let that stop us from having a decent Saturday together.  One of the best things about Valentine's Day this year was that Mark and I actually had NOTHING planned. For once in our lives we had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING going on.  Some of you might find that strange, but if you know us, you know that we are pretty much ALWAYS on the go... most Saturdays are filled with so many activities that I almost forget what it is like to have a day to do nothing.  Valentine's Day was one of those days.  I got up at a fairly reasonable hour and after getting ready Mark and I exchanged our Valentine's Day gifts. Though I got Mark a bunch of different things, I am pretty sure that his Fitbit Charge HR was his favorite gift of all as he immediately tried to set it up and we had to take the portable charger with us when we went out so that he could charge it enough to use it.

I may have gone a little overboard on the presents for the hubby this year... Whoops
Mark got me a bunch of different things... feeding pretty much all of my addictions. He got me a gorgeous bouquet of roses,  some jewelry (what girl doesn't love jewelry), a new "Wifey" sweatshirt (which should be here tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!), and a new winter jacket (for the sub zero temperatures we are having here in Philly this week)!!

Gorgeous Roses
A traditional "funny" card and a picture of my new sweatshirt!
A more serious card and a picture of a potential winter jacket!
Snowman necklace... because I love my season themed jewelry
Owl jewelry set... feeding my owl addiction one thing at a time!
After spending the day shopping for a jacket, Mark and I had a nice lunch a Mesa Fresh and then came home to relax and then cook dinner together.

Mmmmmm surf & turf!

I seriously couldn't have asked for a better Valentine's Day.  What meant the most to me was definitely just getting to spend some quality time with Mark.  Due to our opposite work schedules it is very rare that we get to spend so much time together, much less an entire day just the two of us.  I love my husband every day of the year, and I try to always show him how much I love him, but it was definitely nice to show him just a little extra love on our first Valentine's Day spent together!!
