adorable "love smoke" card from owls go hoot
we have some really awesome plans this weekend for valentine's day and i'm looking forward to it. that sounds too grown up - i'm frothing at the mouth, shaking with excitement, and penciling in getting my valentine's candy sugar rush on. i was going to surprise doug with the ski ridge tour i arranged for him as his valentine's gift, but he basically pinned me down and squashed the breath out of me until i'd tell him. well not really, but he still somehow got me to spill the beans. and i love surprises. or rather, i love being the one that knows the surprise. i turn even more nuts than doug if i suspect something is up, and threaten everything i can think of until someone tells me what's going on.
valentine's day seven years ago was when doug asked me to marry him, which kind of makes it an extra special day for us. for our second wedding anniversary, i made a (dorky) movie for doug, and had the wonderful idea post it on here! (doug, i'm figuring it's a lot better to ask for forgiveness than permission on this one.) watching it is so crazy now, knowing that it was only our second year of marriage and we had been through so much. i am so happy to have had him by my side to brave all the changes with. maybe everyone feels like that.
please excuse me though, i have a date with a box of smarties and bowl of m&m's. i'll probably just cringe through this anyway.
