Happy Valentine's Day!

It was a wonderful Valentine's Day. Matt sent three dozen roses and a box of chocolates to my office. The bouquet took up a third of my desk! He got home before me and made a simple pasta dinner, with wine. We had a little alone time and then spent hours under the covers, talking about our years together and our future and baby names and the state of the world, and then we fed each other the chocolate-covered strawberries I had purchased from Yia Yia's the day before, and showered and crawled back in bed for the night.

I always thought of Valentine's Day as a cheesy hallmark holiday, but I actually appreciated it this year, as a reminder to stop and smell the roses (all 36 of 'em), and appreciate those you love.
