Two years ago today Matthew got down on one knee at the top of the Georgian Terrace hotel in Atlanta and after some sweet words (the only ones I remember are “We make a great team” and “I think you know where this is going“) asked me to be his wife. I happily accepted through my tears and laughter and we toasted to our future together.
Now of course, we’re married, and our family has grown to include a new Valentine. We celebrated Valentine’s Day with Maccabee by giving him his very own Valentine’s Day card. We don’t do fancy and crazy Valentine’s Day anymore for a couple of reasons. First, there’s no way Matthew will ever be able to outdo himself after proposing two years ago and second, we show each other we love each other every day and don’t need a special holiday to do so.
Maccabee got a rawhide “card” for him to eat. After all, this is the dog who eats rocks so we figured that we might as well get him something that is actually meant for consumption. It was a big hit! Here are a few shots of our hairy Valentine enjoying his treat.
I hope that all of you and your valentines have a wonderful day enjoying each other’s company! Both of my Valentines are currently passed out in the living room as the Winter Olympics plays in the background.
Our day is simple. Our love is fabulous. Life is good.
