Happy Valentine's Day and Anniversary

Last weekend was Valentine's Day, and though we're not big on the whole holiday/consumer blitz, it also happens to be our anniversary. It doesn't get any more cliche than that, but R and I were married on Valentine's Day in New York City. Talk about your New York City events, we were in line at City Hall with people from all walks of life, complete with pink tuxedos and Elvis impersonators (well, maybe that's a stretch).

Either way, it doesn't take much to just say your care and share your thoughts. This is especially true with kids, who don't need an excuse to have a good time. A&N actually made some really cool V-day things for mom and dad, and contrary to times past, it was actually N who took charge and started the whole thing. He brought down a V-day card and two bracelets for us, and besides being overwhelmed by the creativity, cuteness and thoughtfulness of it all, we were really taken by surprise. These sort of things are usually the provenance of A.

Of course, not to be outdone, A made us heart cards that were very creative and cute, and it turned out to be a fabulous anniversary/V-day. The chocolate auction helped.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to A&N for the wonderful V-day surprises.
