With it being the 14th of February I am unashamedly going all out on the loveydovey today. Move over cynics, I'm coming through.
This is my Valentine, my husband Matt.
We've been together 8 years, married 3 and parents for 2. Some years have been incredible, some years alright and some years very challenging.
What impresses me most about Matt is that he in unwavering in his love for me and even in the midst of huge fights (where I'm being just horrible), he will say, 'because I love you'. Matt will always let me win a row, always let me choose the film, always let me sleep in the car and always offer to get the baby up on a weekend.
I know I talk about how grateful I am for things on here, because when I type them it's as though I'm just telling myself, but I so rarely tell Matt and in 2014 and making a conscious effort to let him know that I love the way he treats me like a lady, love that he will get up in the middle of the night to check the window is locked because I get freaked out, love that he will offer to drive hours to my friend's houses and love the way he loves me back.
It's sickening, I know, but after a very difficult 2013, I feel a like we are falling in love with each other all over again. Makes me want to do a little cry in the hotel room I am typing this from. Good grief.
Well, I am well and truly disgusted at my out burst of emotion and hope you haven't lost your lunches.
Seriously though, he's such a gem.
I hope you have found your gem's this Valentines or are being rebels and throwing two fingers up at convention and eating pizza with friends (which is how I spent many a February 14th!)
Let me know what you're doing in the comment, I love to nose at your lives.
