I'm Back!

I have so many pictures and updates from my weekend trip (which I had to keep mum about on this blog so that it stayed a surprise) that I can't wait to share, but I'm sick and still trying to recover, so I'm going to start back in with a simple and sweet post. You know you have a wonderful, loving husband when he tells you, on Valentine's Day that he prayed for you while you were gone. I love that man more than I did when we first met, 15 years ago, and I'm so thankful that he's my Valentine. I'm not a huge Valentine's Day fan, so we tend to keep it low key. James got me cards, roses, and some Ghirardelli chocolates, and I got him a small basket of khaki socks (he always seems to need more of those), a Reese's Peanut Butter Heart, and Lindor Lindt balls (milk chocolate, of course). I made the kids personalized cupcakes from Grandpa and Grandma Plautz, and they also received a card and McDonald's gift certificates from their aunt, uncle, and cousins in Nevada - so all in all it was a pretty good night. After the kids were in bed, James and I headed to Fred Meyer to buy some cold and flu medicine and lotion kleenex (as I said, I'm really, really sick) and then we went to Applebees and had drinks (a beer for James and a caramel appletini for me), appetizer and dessert. It's always lovely to get to spend time together, regardless of the occasion.

Glad you were able to get out just the two of you last night...sounds like it was a good Valentine's Day! Hope you're feeling better today.
