Above and Beyond

This week, I've been sick. As such, yesterday Rob chivalrously volunteered to go to the store to get me some chicken noodle soup (as our cupboard seemed to be empty of all suck "sick food" items). He returned home with....

Not 1, but 3 different kinds of chicken noodle soup options,

A box of Saltines,


A Redbox movie (chick flick, of course)

and a new release book from Barnes and Noble.

Swoon. Best. Husband. Ever.

I love you!

This is coming a little late... but Happy Valentine's Day! I love Valentine's Day!! What a day to express love and gratitude to the ones we love. Do I need a holiday to give me an exuse to tell my man how much I love him? No way! But is it nice to have one? Absolutely!

I've never quite understood the animosity that some people feel towards this "fake" holiday...

why is this day--set aside specifically for the purpose of showing the ones we love how much we appreciate them--so frowned upon? Rob says the only people who hate Valentine's Day are single people.... maybe. Maybe not. I know a few who aren't single who hate it, so that can't be ENTIRELY true. Or perhaps its because it's a Hershey/Hallmark conspiracy? Could be. But then again, doesn't the corporate world--as a general rule of thumb--seek to take advantage of EVERY holiday? What makes V-day so special and different that we feel the need to hate it so badly. I don't know! For any Valentine's Day haters out there reading this... if you hate the holiday, PLEASE SHARE! I'm genuinely curious of your reasons!

In any event, I had a good holiday. And here are a few pictures from our festivities:

Now with all these festive, heart-warming acts of kindness... how can you really hate Valentine's Day??
