Valentine's Day







I've had mixed feelings on this holiday before, mostly it came and went without me caring too much. But I've grown to love it for so many reasons. Your just not going to hear me complaining about a whole day set aside to celebrate those you love. Now, I think we should be showing love towards others everyday, but there's something fun about all the decorations. cards, candy, and flowers.
Caleb and I don't necessarily go all out for Valentines Day, in fact this year Caleb asked me what I wanted to do and I told him nothing. I just wanted to come home from church and relax with Elijah and him. (I did say I didn't want to cook, but he usually cooks on Sunday's anyways.) So, that's what we did. I did get him a card and made him a cheesecake. (one of his favorite things) And he surprised me with a little something. I ran out do do some errands really fast and when I came back I opened the door to a floor covered with cut out hearts that Elijah and him did together with all the things they loved about me written on them. They both got me a card, roses, and some of my favorite candy. What a fun surprise. I love them both so much!

The pictures I took of the day didn't turn out too well though. A friend gave us this really nice camera with two different lenses, but I'm still figuring out how to use it. I've actually had a really hard time figuring out all the settings. Our apartment has horrible lighting so this is the best I could do.
