Yes, another blog about Valentine's Day...
Monday, February 14, 2011
Last year around this time, my husband and I were not married and we were seperated. He was dating someone else and I was miserable. Yet, I was working out, tanning, taking care of myself and so even though last year on this day, I was alone, I didn't mistreat myself.
Fast forward to today. Though the story of how we got here is quite incredible, the most important thing is we are here. I asked my husband this year not to buy me chocolates or anything that would undo what I'm trying so hard to achieve. Even though we have argued in the past about him not listening to me, he did this time. For Valentine's day, we spent the day in Dallas. We went to eat mediterranean food and caught a foreign film. It was romantic, and fun, and different.
Then he gave me an antique vase and a bunch of mini roses. And even though we have fought, made up, fought and made up again...the truth is, that is love. For this silly girl anyway. And for someone who five years ago didn't believe love was real but was a chemical reaction, well, that's a pretty big deal.
