We normally don't even recognize Vday round these parts (we barely even do our anniversary) but this year I pulled off quite the gift. I surprised Aaron with a cruise! Not too shabby considering I thought of it just over a week ago. So we celebrated a little early and got home yesterday evening. I'll share some pictures and an excessively wordy recap later but, in the meantime, here's some love for your Valentine's Day:
Some tips for a really great marriage from Mara and Danny of A Blog About Love. A hearty amen to all of it.
It's business time. Please tell me you already know this one by heart. The other day Aaron was giving me a massage and wimped out early. "That was like two minutes long!" I complained. He replied, "Two minutes in heaven is better than one minute in heaven." Touche.
Ruche regularly posts love stories on their blog. If you want to laugh, cry, and generally wallow in sap, it's a good place to go.
Time.com did a wonderful piece on couples who have been married 50 years or more. My favorite was one sweet wife talking about how she and her husband have become so alike and she said, "It's the years. The years." I can feel the weight behind that. What an amazing thing to stand on that side of a marriage and be able to look back on so much time, experience and love shared.
Happy Valentine's Day from our nest of lurve to yours.
