Happy Valentine’s Day! (I know I am a little late here, whoops)
Did you enjoy your day? Did you eat lots of chocolate? Did you proclaim your love to someone?

I spent most of the day off the internet which was lovely. I hung out and cuddled with Rowan and finished my gifts for Kev. Our friends offered to watch Rowan for us last night, so Kev and I actually had a little date night. Nothing fancy but it did include a delicious dinner, pastries and some chai tea. Mmmmm!

For our first anniversary he wrote me a fictional-ish (haha. not a word) short story about “our story.” The story of how we meet. He has continued to add to the story as different special occasions go by. They are always made into a book and bound. Today he gave me one that was talking about the birth of Rowan from his perspective. Let’s just say I was crying on the couch for a good 20 mins as I opened and read the story. It was very touching. What a good man he is.
This is the outfit I wore to dinner tonight. Like my new boots? I LOVE THEM!!! It felt like the friends episode when I brought them home and told Kev about them. You know that episode where Monica gets the expensive boots and tells Chandler how they will go with everything. haha. That was me the other night. They were super expensive (for me anyways) but I got them for 60%, so I think it was a good buy. Kev needed some convincing. Anyways, unlike Monica’s boots mine are super comfortable. They have a hidden wedge which is awesome and I could wear these things all day. I got them in NYC and have worn them everyday since.
