Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Most people regard this as "The Hallmark Holiday", and hey, it is what it is, but I love it! I love being able to take some extra time out of my day to tell the people that I love, that I love them. I think in this fast-paced, busy life that we all lead, it is sometimes forgotten, and man do I feel guilty when I forget!

Tyler and I spent Sunday celebrating, and well I guess our celebration has extended a bit before and after that. I was so excited about the present I got for Tyler, that I gave it to him the same day DHL delivered. I made him a photobook of all of our adventures for the last 7 1/2 years of this relationship. It was really cool to be able to reminisce about everything from vacations, to summer nights, buying our first home and our wedding!

Ok, so on Sunday, we headed to one of my favorite restaurants, The Melting Pot, for a nice dinner together. This place is so cool, and is such an experience. When you are cooking your own food, you have lots of time to talk and just spend time... together!

My Love Martini... I just had to

As part of the Valentine's "Special" at the Melting Pot, I got a rose after dinner

And we got a picture too! 

So remember... Valentine's Day was extended a bit. Because of work, we are unable to "celebrate" tonight, so last night when I got home from work, I found this waiting for me on the desk...

Jamaican coffee, Jamaican rum and pina colada mix, and beautiful flowers!

Hope everyone had a great time celebrating the holiday of love, however it may be that you celebrate! Love to all of our family and friends that we don't get to see and don't tell enough that we love them!
