Valentine's Day: Breaking Tradition

For the past six consecutive years, I've celebrated Valentine's Day by hosting an all girls' sleepover (you can see pictures here).  Let me tell you: that's one of the best ways to spend the annual day of love!

But this year, for the first time, I'm taking a break from the girly festivities and focusing on this guy:


We aren't doing anything big (just a casual dinner out), but I'm welcoming the change, although I'll miss conversations & Valentini cocktails with the girls.

I'm lucky to have two little mini valentines as well:

the Freitag boys

It's pretty great being surrounded by cute boys all the time.  These three teach me so much about love, and make me realize how lucky I am to be girlfriend to Matt and babysitter to Milo and Jude.  ♥

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sounds like a perfect little evening for you two!! Joe and I did NOT cook, believe it or not!

Because I am such a need freak (slightly OCD) he went over to my apartment and CLEANED the entire place! I've been meaning to do it, and he snuck in and did it for me.... he even cleaned my oven and stove top! It was the best gift I could have asked for! (I'm so Monica from Friends! HA)

Happy Valentine's day pretty girl!! :)
