Happy Valentines!

I know a lot of people do not like this made up holiday, but I LOVE it!!  It is like the kick off event for spring and my birthday.  3 years ago on the 11th I decided to enhance this day with a wedding and a trip to London. 

Well London is long over but the love is not.  We had a great anniversary and this weekend we went to a nice hotel in town and got the "Romance Package".  It includes dinner and brunch.  It should be a great mini getaway.

My awesome husband bought me one of these.

I obviously did not take that picture.  I am super excited about my new camera!!  The camera is actually anniversary/Valentines/birthday gift.  We do not usually do big ticket items like this. 

After much consideration this is what I did for my husband for anniversary/Valentines.  I know it is not as extravagant as my gift but he wanted a pen.

Each frame has a map of somewhere we have been together.  We love to travel and so I thought it would be really special to be able to look at this and reflect on all of the great things we have done together.  Yes we have great kids but our travels are something different to us.

Hope everyone had a great Valentines weekend!!
