feb. 14

today is a loverly day.  valentine's day.  just loverly.

i've always hated valentine's day.  i never understood why we'd want to choose a day of the year to celebrate love.  i'm not a feminist, or a murderer of love, or anything like that, i just have never seen the fun in celebrating love once/year.

 i am a real firm believer in celebrating love every day.  i am a firm believer in practicing random acts of romanticism as frequently as your heart leads. 

(i love these random acters here)
i had to put them in here somewhere!!! 
this year, my husband felt lead to randomly practice romanticism yesterday. 

he surprised me (with short notice), set up childcare, and drove me up to mccall for a fancy dinner at steamers. 

i followed up the romanticism with a surprise of my own for him.  *picture NOT included!*  we had a wonderful and romantic evening and enjoyed eachothers company. 

dinner was not only fancy, but amazingly delicious.  and the company was not just enjoyable, but splendidly perfect. 

oh... and the scenery.  yes.  beautiful.  it was beyond beautiful, as mccall always is!

i hope you all enjoy your loverly day, whether it be your birthday, the 14th of february, or the middle of the month!  enjoy.  and don't forget to celebrate love... any time you feel like it!

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
