love letters

Happy Valentine's Day!

Me and mine aren't very good with this holiday. I'm not an avid fan of boxed chocolates, balloons, cheesy cards or cheap gifts.
{I do like flowers though.}

So our Valentine's Day is usually no where near the Hallmark version of the holiday.
But that doesn't mean it's not a special day.

In the top drawer of my bedside table, there is a journal that holds some of my most precious things. Today might be a good day to show you.

J.B. and I have only been together for a little over three years. We met working for the same company out of college. And I'm pretty sure I feel in love with him over margaritas and cheese dip when the gang went out to celebrate our end of the month goals. {I know, so romantic...}

But we have a wonderfully, sweet kind of love. Over the past three years, he's taken to writing me all kinds of notes. Everything from wishing me a perfect day on a sticky note to writing a love letter before he left on a business trip. Anniversaries letters, birthdays messages and even a Christmas coupon card all fill up a journal inside my bedside table. 

This morning, I found this waiting for me on my dresser.

{wowzers, a two pager!}

So today I dug out all of his love letters and took a little walk down memory lane. He really is a fantastic man. And I love him more today than ever before.

A few days ago he mentioned that he was craving red velvet cake...
what kind of valentine would I be if I didn't oblige?

With my own little spin of-course.

Tell me these heart shaped red velvet cupcakes aren't darling!

It really isn't much. But it's us. 

Happy Valentine's Day, my love!
