An ode To Valentines Day

I absoultly heart Valentine's Day. There is something about hearts and chocolates and the sentimental cheesiness of it all that keeps me smitten. Does it hurt that my middle name is Valentine and my tiny sister were born on the magical day as well??? But this year, I am taking all the pressure of having a magaical love fest with Sir Nickolas and skipping town. I am going home for the weekend to see my family, play dollar blackjack with Chuckie and celebrate my sisters one year on this polar ice cap melting home we call Earth. Not to say I'm not doing magical things for my honey. I am making him a Valentine to mimick this and presenting him with a box of chocolate peanut butter bears. Then when I get home on Sunday, we are going to watch Friday the 13th and eat at our favorite resturant California Pizza Kitchen. But don't think I didn't think of an ode to my wonderful charming fiance.

Dear Nick,

I can't believe it's been already three years under out belt come this May. It seems like just yesterday we would talk on the phone until 4am, make cinamon rolls without burning them and sightsee all over Las vegas while getting to know the real us. I was truly happy when you asked me to marry you on our one year anniversary and even though our future plans are on the back burner while I go to school, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for taking care of me in ways I will forever be thankful for. Thank you for letting me crawl in your lap when I've had a bad day or good one, just to let me babble in your ear. Thank you for having your own life outside of our relationship so that I may have one as well. Thank you for helping me take care of our furry children, I couldn't do it without you. Thank you for putting the Wii in the bedroom so that I can play Guitar Hero anytime the mood strikes. Thank you for letting me eat in bed even though I am the queen of crumbs. And thank you for just loving me the way I am when I wake up in the morning, with my crazy bed hair and old pajama pants I just can't seem to part with. I love you too Nickel, just the way you are.
