I love February! It’s my favorite month. (I say that now, but second-guess it each December.)
What’s not to love? There are hearts and pink everywhere and it’s a great excuse to tell people you love them. Oh, and of course, there’s my birthday next week. This year I’m sharing my birthday with the Presidents again.
I’ve loved Valentine’s Day as long as I can remember (and believe me, I never had boyfriends for it before college.) I’ve just always loved celebrating the love shared with family and friends. But I’m still super-happy and thankful, of course, for my two special Valentines. Happy Valentines Day, Bryan and Lucy! I’ll love you forever.
And it’s because of God’s great, unfailing LOVE that I can find peace in chaos and joy in sorrows. He is my first love!

Alright, now on to the fun Valentine’s photos and video!
Most of these are taken on our front porch where Lucy loves to play. The captions aren’t showing up on this slideshow, so keep an eye out for:
- her reaction about wearing the tutu today. (Notice she didn’t in the photos where she’s smiling!)
- the shoes she insisted on wearing all day today even though they were still a size too big.
- the pic of her from last Valentine’s at Chilis–it was our first time at Chilis here and her first time in a high chair. We celebrated yesterday at Chilis again.
- her sippy cup. What? This girl has never wanted a sippy cup and has used straws since way before she was 1 year. But this week she has become very attached to this sippy that has “Elmo” and “Bird, Bird” on it. It also has Cookie Monster, but instead of saying his name she points to him, then pretends to eat while shaking her head and making noise. That’s our kid.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
