After a rough couple of weeks...I have to say, Valentine's Day was not feeling like an opportunity to express my undying love to my husband. It was feeling like a bit of work.
So what did I do? I sucked it up...and planned a surprise outing.
I kindly asked my husband if I he had made any plans...to hear that he had-the night before I had made plans!
Long story short (read: a minor scuffle later), we went out last night to a fantastic sushi (see below) dinner and cancelled the date I had planned for tonight! One night away from my babies is enough for me!
We decided not to do gifts...
"Nothing says I love you like some Coffee and Spatulas"
Man...how did I land this guy!?!
Today I am as pleased as pie with my Valentine's day. Thank goodness I snapped out of my poor attitude and breathed a deep breath and enjoyed myself.
My husband is fantastic...after more than 13 years of being together and over 10 years of marriage he really just "gets" me! For that I am so thankful.
Last night just reminded me that at the end of the day, it's great to have a person who I can rely on. A person with whom I can share my authentic self with. A person who accepts me for all of my faults and failures.
My Valentine is that person. Happy Valentine's Day Dear!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
