My Valentine

Since it’s the week of love, I thought I’d share a little about my Valentine.  I’ve been trying all week to write a little about our love story… but it seems pretty lame.  I haven’t been able to come up with a post that describes us – everything that I’ve started sounds cheesy, or insincere and just isn’t us.  That “ah-hah” moment never happened for me, when I KNEW Josh was the one I was going to marry.  There was nothing special or memorable about our meet cute.  It wasn’t love at first sight, and I actually don’t even remember the specific day that we met.

I’m such a sucker for a good, sappy love story so I always thought I would be a part of one.  That’s not how life turned out.  Sometimes ordinary is okay. It’s the little things that mean the most.  We can just be us, just be together and know that we found the person that we’ll spend the next 60+ Valentine’s Days with.

So this guy has been my Valentine for 7 years now, which seems pretty crazy looking back.  This picture is a little throw back to winter 2010 (taken by Unikke Photography), and was the closest thing we had to engagement photos.  And by the way, I highly recommend having engagement pictures taken, that moment in your life is gone in a blink – capture it!

P.S. – I just did the math, I’m not sure I want to spend 60+ Valentine’s Days together, that would make us really really old!
