A little Valentine’s day flashback for ya today… these photos are from Valentine’s Day 2006. Husband and I had just bought our first condo in Lynnwood, I was merchandising for Banana Republic and he was managing a movie theater in Bellevue. We didn’t really know what we wanted to do with our lives and life was not always easy, but we made it work. We celebrated that year with a cheap and charming dinner at a local Chinese restaurant and I got real dressed up in my sweatshirt and ponytail. Valentine’s Day has never really been about gifts and fancy dinners with us. We just love to spend an evening together reminiscing and thinking about our life together and where we want to go in life. We got married so young and have really grown up together. It’s been so thrilling watching Matthew discover his passion and grow into a real adult. I’m lucky to have someone who supports me through everything and puts up with me through everything, too.
I love you, husband. Happy Valentine’s Day. xo
