I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM HALFWAY THROUGH MY PREGNANCY! My symptoms are all pretty mild. I am not as exhausted as I was but I still don’t sleep well so I am usually tired. The break outs on my skin … Continue reading

2 years with the love of my life.
Sometimes it feels like we have only been together a few months and other times it feels like 20 years. Not in a bad way! Just that so much has happened, I cannot believe it has only been 2 years. So here is a little taste of what has happened in our lives…
Wesley and I both went through career changes. I started school to be a Master Esthetician, graduated last year, and worked in a spa for several months. Wesley decided to join the Army, graduated from Basic Training, and is currently in his Advanced Training.
Last year, we bought our first house and we love that little yellow beauty! But, with Wesley joining the Army, we have had to move out and let someone else make that house into a home.
The past couple years have been filled with adventures, pictures, heartache, drives, and love. Most of all love. I loved Wesley sooo freakin’ much when we got married and I could not imagine any greater love than what we had. Over these last couple years, we have fallen more and more in love and it just blows my mind.
Has it always been easy? Nope. Are things just sunshine and rainbows all the time? Nah. But, when there are dark days, there is no one else I would rather spend those days with. Wesley and I are so much stronger from the things we have been through and we have learned so much about ourselves, each other, and our relationship.
Wesley really is my soul mate. I can’t even tell you how many times we have said the same thing at the same time or both had a craving for the same restaurant. My favorite is when Wesley calls me and asks if I have been having a bad day because he had a feeling like I was not doing well. I love this man.
Alright, I am done with all the cheese now- I promise!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I love this holiday! It is tied with Halloween for my favorite. Sometimes, you get to spend the entire day with your loved one for Valentine’s Day- other times, you may only get a couple hours to grab some breakfast or a drink before needing to do other things.
So, I wanted to give a few different ideas for the whole day that you can use together or just one idea for whatever you may have time for!
8:30 AM – Treat yourself to donuts. Chances are your local donut places also has milk, chocolate milk, or coffee. Start your day with a yummy, sugary treat. If all you have is the morning together on Valentine’s Day, then this is a fun thing to do because you get some time to yourself while eating a delicious (although fattening) breakfast.
1:00 PM – If you get to leave work early and you and your honey love relaxing together, why not get a couple’s massage? These tend to book out quickly for Valentine’s Day (I know this firsthand because I work in a spa). But, if you book your appointment in advance and try a few different places, you should be just fine! Couple’s massages are so intimate and relaxing and several places offer lots of specials to make this special date even more special.
5:30 PM – Watch the sunset. Whether you have a picnic in the last light of the day, or catch the last bit of light and then go stargazing- watching the sunset is very romantic. This date idea also doesn’t cost anything! So go find a tall building or a mountain top this Valentine’s Day.
8:00 PM – Now you have had a long day of either needing to be at work, taking care of kids, or spending a lovely day with your sweetheart. No matter how your day has been, you’re probably ready for a drink. I am not sure what this may mean to you- to me, it means soda or hot chocolate. There is this adorable place by where we live called Pop N’ Sweets. They have candy, chocolate, and soda from all over the world! They even have a cute little hot chocolate bar. When Wesley and I went, I got dark hot chocolate and he got… ButterBeer! I know… I know… way cool.
Whether you have an early breakfast, a nightcap, or all of the above with your love- I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
