Valentine's Day

Five years ago Valentine's Day, Aaron and I got engaged. I had been hoping for a ring for a while and Aaron kept telling me not to expect anything on Valentine's Day, so I was very excited when he took my blindfold off to a candlelit house with rose pedals all over.

Aaron had a delicious dinner ready and beautiful music playing in the background. After dinner, he gave me a small white box filled with keys and told me that if I could find the key that opened another box, a bigger, beautiful, wooden box (that I later found out Aaron made) I could have whatever was inside. I found the right key and inside the box was my engagement ring slid up on the stems of two roses (one red and one yellow--the colors I had told Aaron I wanted our wedding to be). Aaron then got down on one knee and the rest is history. It was the best decision of my life and I am so grateful to have Aaron as my husband.

Since that Valentine's Day, we have decided that we would have a pretty low key day. This year we went out to lunch and then bought ourselves new cell phones. Chloe loves dogs so when Aaron found this stuffed dog he knew it was the perfect gift to get Chloe. As you can see from the picture, she did love it and has dragged it (and the one that Grandma Searle gave her) around everyday since!

Love the photos. You definitely haven't aged 5 years in looks. Still young and cute as ever. Remind me what days you are at Foothill. I'm going to find you one day.
