So today- on the 14th of February- Kent and I celebrate our 14th Valentine's Day as best friends- and he works a 14 hour shift :) I sent him with 14 cards/notes to open every hour of his shift so he wouldn't feel unloved :)
and in honor of valentine's day - I'll continue my tradition of reminding myself why I'm so happy by listing 14 of my loves.
I ♥ Kent. oh so much. he just gets better and better each and every day.
I mentioned this yesterday- but I ♥ Target. What a heavenly heavenly place. I think I'll fill Kent's absence today by visiting target. It's almost the same thing.
Even though I tend to complain a lot- I really do ♥ my rugrats. It's amazing how these little creatures (I am referring to my kiddos) can just burrow their way into my heart.
I ♥ my savior, Jesus Christ, and his perfect gospel. How am I the most blessed person on earth? to have what I have and know what I know is truly the greatest gift.
I ♥ Ohio. I think that I was born destined to spend part of my existence here. Such a wonderful place with such wonderful people.
And although I may not be saying this when Kent is spending six months on the other side of the world- I ♥ the U.S. Air Force. So many blessings have come our way as we've been a part of the military.
This may make me sound so cliche- but I really really ♥ my minivan. Life changing. Have you ever been able to push a button and have your doors open up? or have your bum warmed by your seat? pure delight.
I still really ♥ my YMCA and a great workout. There is almost nothing better than a hard workout or a good long run or spin. Definitely my therapy.
I will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart for m&ms. I ♥ them more than words can express. Especially the holiday colored ones. Why do they taste so much better when pink in February and red and green in December?!
I ♥ losing myself in a good tv show. Kent watches project runway with me every week, still. And we laugh uncontrollably through Modern Family. And when he's working nights I push through seasons of Prison Break. What a wonderfully terrible time wasting vice :)
I also ♥ getting lost in a good book. or magazine for that matter.
I ♥ having something to look forward to. Like holidays and parties and girls nights and Kent coming home from work. I think life should be celebrated EVERY day so there's always something to look forward to.
I ♥ to eat. food in general. If I was half as dedicated about my eating as I am at the gym- I'd be super woman. Too bad I love it so much. and too bad it tastes so good!!
and finally- I ♥ my family. my church family. my extended family. my in-law family. my friend family. all of them. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such great people.
