Beckett, your laughter is so perfect.
I know you know how loved you are.
Plus, I had to just take all of my Valentine's excitement out on you since your Dad is at school!
I love giving out Valentine's. I bought one for Beckett, one for Elliott, one for Elliott "from Beckett" and then one that had Chewbacca on the cover and went "Brrruuuuuuuuuurrr" when you opened it... Just because. I did end up returning that one though. This is Beckett's below: Can't get enough of the old fashioned business. "The Runaway Bunny" accompanied the card. I never read it before today and it nearly made me cry. I love the illustrations.
"If you become a bird and fly away from me," said his mother, "I will be a tree that you can come home to."
I told Elliott that tonight I wanted Wetzel's Pretzels because that place could practically be gourmet--they serve appetizers, main courses and desserts--they just happen to all be pretzels.
And I'm ok with that.
Elliott told me to "go for it," and I just might.
This is love, people. This. Is. Love. Your slightly overly particular food lover of a husband consenting to pretzels on V-Day.
Tomorrow is actually the "more special" day for Elliott and I (we celebrate our third anniversary of the day we got engaged) and I think we will celebrate sometime this week by going to Carrabba's. It's pretty much our "hangout" place. Not really... But we go there a lot and it's a HECK of a lot closer than Scottsdale so it's easily up on the list of food loves.
Like I said, I love turning any holiday into a week-long event. I live for it. They're just too fun not to.
