Hey, it's Valentine's Day!

Hey, did you know today is an international holiday? Probably not, because it’s not like it’s all over everything or anything like that.

In that case, today is Valentine’s Day, and we celebrate this cheesy, Hallmark day. Because why?? Because it’s about love. And conversation hearts. And love. And chocolate. All good things.

So with that articulate and exorbitantly well-versed introduction, I give you 3 reasons why we’re celebrating Love Fest 2013 today. Because, who doesn’t love lists?

1.      Because we’re married. And when you’re married, you have to work really hard to enjoy being married. Part of that means celebrating everything (to us anyways). And, as a result, we love being married.

Funny Valentine's Day Ecard: I adore you even more than the people of North Korea are forced to adore Kim Jong-un.

2.      Because on this day, three years ago, I went up to an old friend and asked if I could sit with him at church. I’d just been through a terrible break up, and needed someone to sit with on Sundays. Now, I’m married to that dude. So, this day is kind of a big deal to us.

Funny Valentine's Day Ecard: You're so hot, I'd Instagram you without a filter.

3.      Because in some respect, no matter what your relationship status (thank you Facebook, for making that a thing) or level of pessimism, it’s sometimes awesome to embrace the cheesy, corny things and enjoy them like you did when you were 10. 
      Enter: conversation hearts. 
      Be mine?

Funny Valentine's Day Ecard: I could watch TV with you forever

In 2012...

What an exciting year we had in 2012, so many great events!

January began the year, with us moving out of out of our apartment and into my parent's home in order to save to buy a home. Our lives took on a crazy level of busyness, we documented some of that crazy, and took no pictures! Not even one!

In February, we ran a half marathon together!


March was  a big month.

 We celebrated St. Patrick's Day with great friends.


Also celebrated, a birthday. 

All preceded with a major announcement/life change as Hubband got his dream job.

April brought us an awesome concert, some spectacular dates, and a weekend to ourselves with a staycation.


In May, we partook in adventures of all sizes and variations, enjoying a mighty busy but mighty splendid month.


June was big. We celebrated our first anniversary (parts two and three), bought a house, and I turned 23 on the day we moved into our very first home. 

In July, we divulged in several random blurbs while living in a world of boxes, hammers, and home decor as we gradually turned our brand-new[ish] house into a home.

In August, we more yet exposed our ultra-super-cheesy-ness to the world, waded through a seemingly never-ended faction of boxes, and I went to San Francisco with my parents.

 September arrived with [yet] more home projects, [still more] decorating, and finding joy in the every day. There were some boxes too. Anyone recognizing a theme?

October came and went in a flash, framed in our minds by one pumpkin and one very relaxing Halloween night spent in. 

November was chocked full as we finished [more yet] home projects and hosted Thanksgiving in our home, for the very first time- a huge success!

December has brought us a beautiful [white] Christmas at Hubband's family cabin with just the two of us, and a new addition to our family.

And now as we head out [to be safe] with a group of awesome friends, we can leave with a smile on our face. 2012 was a whopper, it's going to be hard to beat. 

Won't stop us from trying, though.
