The highlight was probably the card that my sweet husband made. If you know him at all, he's not terribly sentimental, so Valentine's Day doesn't really make sense to him. But this thoughtful card was over the top for him! It said "Remember" across the bottom and he had sprinkled the front with a ton of different memories:
- "When you cried through your birthday dinner not knowing there was a surprise party waiting that weekend." (I thought everyone had forgot about me!)
- "Talking on the beach at leadership retreat." (That's when Andrew told me that he wanted to marry me)
- "Thinking about our children and their little Carolina cheerleader and football uniforms."
- "When the fireplace broke into our apartment." (Our first night in this apartment, the wind shook the fireplace chimney and made it sound like someone was in the apartment. We didn't sleep at all we were so scared!)
There were several other stories written on the front of the card, many that no one else would understand without explanation, which is why I'm so in love with that boy. I love every single inside joke and special memory with him, and I'm so thankful that he remembers them as well as I do. I'm a lucky, lucky girl!
