I hope you are all able to spend today with someone special. For me, I am spending it with my sweet little family. I woke up this morning to the girls running in my room with a card and a box of chocolates, followed by hubby with a card. So sweet! I love them so much!
Today I wanted to share something with you that I have had for 15 years. That is how long I have known my hubby. We met when I was a sophomore in high school, he was a freshmen in college. I knew the moment I walked in his sisters house and made eye contact with him that cold December night, we were going to get married one day. Yes, I really did! We ended up breaking up and getting back together a few times over the year or so we dated back then. I eventually moved away, went to college, moved even further away and grew up a little. We started dating again when I was 21 or 22 (sorry, years tend to run together sometimes lol), I moved back to Tulsa (from Dallas) and the rest, they say, is history. It hasn't been easy, we have had some awful fights, we have both done harmful things and we have both forgiven. We still argue, but nothing like we once did. Marriage isn't always easy but it is fun growing and learning with each other.
For my 16th birthday hubby gave me a HUGE jar FULL of chocolate! Hello! The man knows how to make me happy! HAHA! The candy was eventually eaten but the jar remained. Over the time we spent together in HS he would get me flowers from time to time. Then when I moved back, he would surprise me with flowers often.
In HS I started saving and drying the flowers, then I would pick the petals off and place them in the jar. As time went on the jar got fuller and fuller, to the point that I was only able to save one flower out of each bouquet he gave me. The flowers have settled a bit over the years and I now have some room at the top for more flowers. Maybe I will ask him for a new jar this year for my birthday and we can start all over again.
Yes, I am a hopeless romantic.
