Our First Married Valentin’es Day + Happy 6 Months Danny!

On Feb 14th I came home from work and this Rico Suave was in the backyard…very smooth Dan. I love it. He made me crab stuffed lobster, grilled veggies and garlic mashed potatoes. For dessert we had chocolate ganache cake with blueberries and wine. Oh how I love you Danny. Happy, happy Valentine’s Day my love.
Vday Dan
Speaking of LOVE, today {Feb 25} is our 6 month anniversary of our first year married! I know, I know…I’m one of those people that counts the months. Actually, Dan was the one who ever so kindly reminded me of the 1/2 way mark. Too cute, my hub is better at keeping track than I am!
I Love You Danny.
Time flies by when we’re having fun. I can’t believe it has already been 6 months. You’re the apple of my eye. I love you with all of my heart and I am grateful for everyday we’re together. You truly are the best.

What Are You Doing for Valentine’s Day?

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Dan and I usually spend the evening at home. We tried going out for a few years, but it seems that all the resturants have fixed menus and jack up their prices. So this year Dan said he wanted to make dinner for me! Ooh so romantico. We’ll have a nice dinner at home, drink some wine and snuggle up on the couch with a good movie. Sounds amazing to me.
Here is a sweet card that my Aunt Jill sent us for our first married Valentine’s Day.
A sexy outfit to insire your evening.
