February will always be a special month for Kevin and me, nine Februarys ago he proposed and well, obviously I said yes. 🙂 He proposed on February 9th, and each year since then he says “happy proposal anniversary.”
Growing up, Valentine’s Day was not a huge holiday in my family, but my mom would always buy a small thing of candy for me and my brother and there were cards. She’d place them at our spots at the kitchen table to find when we went in for breakfast in the morning. There would also be something from my Dad at her table spot and something from my Mom at his table spot. It’s another tradition that I’ve continued with my own family. Instead of candy though, it is small Lego sets … for the little and the big kid.
Almost every month my mom takes my son for a weekend, this month it falls on Valentine’s Day weekend. A great deal of our focus is us as a family, it is good to get a chance to remember that we are also a couple. We don’t have any solid plans for this weekend, other than whatever we’ll be doing, it will be together. I miss my kid on these weekends, but it has become much easier now that he knows how to FaceTime 🙂
