lovey dovey day

we felt so spoiled and loved this valentines! my friend jill came to visit me at work and brought me the yummiest/cutest cookies i've ever had!
the best part of living away from home are the packages! nana sent us the biggest card we've ever seen and spoiled us with money to go to dinner. mom sent us yummy chocolates, rose petals, rose soaps, socks and a cute little fabric valentine holder. oh how we felt so loved!
i sent out valentine cards to friends/family this year.. i had so much fun making them!
 this valentines was extra special because we both got off at 6. we both promised to not buy gifts this year, our joke is someday when we are rich and famous we can:) my thought is flowers die, homemade things last forever! i had a lot more time to spend on mine.. i made him a book of things i love about him from a deck of cards, i had so much fun antiquing the cards and being creative with my cricit!
here are pictures of some of the pages and the back.:) my favorite part was seeing his face as he was reading him, didn't know if he would notice all the detail cause well, he's a guy.. but he sure did!
he sure did meet my love language.. he wrote me three letters. one expressing the things he loves about me which had me melting and laughing all at the same time. 2 being his favorite memories we've had together and the last one was the minutes and seconds since we started dating ect and it was the most romantic letter ever. he gave them to me throughout the night .. i wasn't expecting more than one!
since my favorite carrabas was a 2 hour wait, j thought of having a reverse date. we had an appetizer at home and then watched a movie in bed and went to dinner around 8:30 and had no wait :) it was perfect. we hadn't been out to eat for a couple months, so it was a real treat. he gave me the last letter at the table and i started crying.. he sure is a thoughtful man. 
the best part is, every day feels like valentines. at least once every day he makes me feel like the most special girl in the world. i'm pretty lucky:)
i do love the day, giving me an excuse to call him my valentine once a year. :)
