The first Valentine's Day that Austin and I ever spent together was February 14, 2005. It seems crarzy that it has already been four years, but at the same time, I feel like we have been together all of our lives.
We were still in college over our first V-Day, so we both got ready for our big date in the dorms :) The girls on my floor were all abuzz getting ready for their respective dates, and we all had a great time speculating about our boyfriends' plans.
Austin and I met in the commons area, where a friend snapped a pic:
Then we headed for a local restaurant. I left Austin's gift in the car, but when we finished eating, Austin pulled out a small box that inside held a pair of diamond earrings! I had never before in my life owned a real diamond! I was so excited! In fact, I still wear them every day!
I am so, so blessed! My hubby spoils me rotten. He was on a hard and fast business trip for the last couple of days, and he pulled into the driveway as I was leaving for work this morning. So he's exhausted, but he was still such a sweetheart, and happy to see us (me & Diddy) :)
I fell so spoiled because not only is he taking me to Mexico next month, but I just found out we're going on a double date tomorrow night and he's been hinting around about a gift (which I was positive we were forgoeing due to the vacation!) He's such a great catch :)
Love you baby!
1. Even though I do not always agree with the commercial hype of Valentine's Day, take advantage of the excuse to be especially romantic and dote upon your hubby!
2. Even after Valentine's Day is over, be intentional about showing genuine kindness and tenderness to your husband!
