Thankful Thursday- My Valentine

With today being Valentine's Day, I have to share how thankful I am for my Valentine- my husband Alex. We have been married for 10 1/2 years and he still manages to surprise me every year on Valentines Day. This year he took me out to a nice restaurant last weekend, which I thought was our Valentine's celebration. It really was enough for me. I knew we would still exchange cards and that he would probably get me flowers, but I did not expect the following.

When I woke up this morning and went into our bathroom, this was waiting by my sink. If the picture is blurry, it is 3 tulips (which I love) with a card. I will also point out the Valentines that my sweet daughters taped all over my mirror for me!

Then I go to the kitchen to start getting breakfast ready for the kids. Last night he put gifts for the girls on the table, but this was added to the table for me:
Yes, that's a spa gift certificate good for a mani-pedi! Plus 6 roses and chocolates! What's a girl to do? I'm reminded of a great song from the 80's "What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man!"

Then, after getting the healthy child ready for school, we hopped in the minivan and found one more Valentine's Day surprise:
I am very thankful for such a loving husband, especially on the day of love!
