My Favorite Valentines Day

James is amazing. Truly amazing.
He is romantic. And even though our lives have quickly changed from our very first Valentines Day together they seem to become more and more romantic.

I don't know what it is (That's a lie…it's the 3 kids within 4 years)…but every Feb 14th seems to matter less and less to me.
Don't get me wrong. I love the holiday. I think it's so sweet. But it's not the day that means a lot. It's how James always seems to make it….

He always finds the way to make it perfect…for us.

In Feb 2009 I looked like this just a couple of weeks before Valentines Day.

Comfortable, right?

Obviously, I didn't want to go out in public after my second C-Section.
So this is what James does…

He makes Chicken Parmesan…buys flowers, lights candles, and pulls the babies into the dining room with us. He lets me wear sweats, and no makeup, and look like I just had a baby. 
It's my favorite photo from Valentines Day. 

I love him.

So every year since, he makes me dinner.
Decorates the table, lights the candles, cleans the dishes, and lets me relax.
And now he is teaching the boys how to be romantic.

They set up the house like a restaurant…serve me and Ella. We even had a song and "clown" show. 
I love it.
I love that my romantic husband is showing them what it looks like to demonstrate love. 

That cheese ball grin…

I'm surely a lucky girl to be surrounded by so much love…and romance!

And who knew this girl would love salsa so much….

That is so sweet and cute that he's teaching your boys to be romantic. That is very important. You are lucky!

That is so adorable! I love your husband!!! Somewhere in the past 18 years I managed to teach my own son to be romantic (he sure didn't learn it from his father - my EX-husband) and I couldn't be a more proud mama. You go girl, enjoy that beautiful family <3 <3 <3
