our perfect dozen years

So it's the big Love Day 3-day weekend and everyone in the house has been in a flurry getting all ready for the kids' Valentines parties at school--well, everyone in the house without a Y Chromosome. We've been busy making Valentine's boxes, cards and candies and these sweet treats I made up and bagged for the three teachers (found on Lorie's site here, who snagged it from Schlosser Designs seen here.

I'd show you my own picture, but alas, have I mentioned that I am shy one digital camera right now? *sob*

As I've mentioned in years past, this is also our Anniversary weekend. Saturday marks the big Dozen years for my sweetheart and I. (Time sure flies when your house is filled with testosterone, yes?) We'll be celebrating today because he has the nerve to be working a 24-hour shift on our special day.


View my past bloggy soliloquies (there's a freshman high school word for ya) on anniversaries and the brilliant idea of getting married the day before Valentine's days, on past blog posts such as this one, where you get a rundown of our changed looks over the years.

Or this one where I remember a few simple things about our day 10 years prior.

Or this one where I detail how we met, started dating, got engaged, and married all within a 6 month period.

We've had some great anniversary/Valentine's dates including this one, in which I may or may not have been under the influence of Tylenol with Codeine. I had just started CrossFit that week (remember that?) and I was sooooo sore. Wait, that seems familiar...


Or this one a month later when we got away for an awesome trip to the Snowflake area, stayed in the world's most rad (yup, I said it) Bed & Breakfast, and went to the temple. There's a video included there that shows Danny knocking his skull pretty hard on some ice-packed snow. Good times.


Or these, 1, 2 (in which I almost make out with Captain Jack Sparrow), and 3 in which we celebrated our big ten years at Disneyland sans children. SO fun!


Or this one in which I got spoiled with a new ring. :)

So yeah, we share our lovey day with pretty much everyone else in the universe, but we still try to make it special for us. He's so good at this, always making me feel beautiful, loved, and appreciated. I'm so grateful for our nonperfect dozen years together! And here's to the next dozen!

I love you Danny!
