So this year was our first Valentine's Day as a family. When Logan asked me what I wanted, I said nothing just buy your daughter something. I have such a fond memory of my dad always buying me roses along with my mom. I was always excited to come home from school to find roses that were just for me. As I got older and started having boyfriends, my dad stopped buying them for me, but it made me feel special like my mom on that very day. I want Isla to feel the same way with Logan. I know she is too young to realize but it's good to start traditions early. We woke up to cards and a stroller toy and a small care bear. Isla even got mommy new fuzzy socks and a monkey coffee mug ( how did she know those are on my list of I things I love!). We had a quiet night at home. Logan brought home wine, a heart shaped pizza and flowers and I was pretty happy...I spent it with the two people that really brighten up my days and fill it with love. I hope everyone surrounded themselves with love, whether it was spouses/partners, children, friends, or family.
