This Flash Back Friday, is in honor of Valentine's Day. Seeing how it is Valentine's Day tomorrow.
This is a picture of me and my honey when I had just gotten back from a trip to go see my friend, Leah in Tennessee. We were engaged at this point. This was 3 months after Valentine's Day. But I wanted to show this picture because of the flowers. Kurt would always give me flowers when I would return from a trip and, like I said, we were engaged when this picture was taken. And Valentine's Day that year was a turning point for Kurt and I.
I had returned from a trip to see my sister in Washington and had returned on Valentine's Day. I was so nervous to see him again. We had only been dating for about 4 months and I was gone for a week, so that was why I was nervous. Well, when I had seen him that night everything had changed. I really had missed him and he had felt the same. He brought me the most beautiful long stem roses. I wish I had a picture of him and me with the roses but I don't. That is why I wanted to post the picture above to show how he would bring me flowers. Kurt was the first guy to buy me flowers without me having to hint to him. I don't care who you are, if you are a girl, there is something about receiving flowers. It makes you feel so special.
If fact after the first time Kurt and I kissed he had roses delivered to me and they had Hershey kisses on stems in between the roses, to symbolize that we had kissed. He is such a great guy and usually guys like him would make me turn away but I knew I needed someone who was sweet like him. I was so used to having guys that didn't treat me so well. I am glad I stuck with him because he is a blessing in my life and he still gets me flowers.
Here I am with the long stem roses he got me. The picture doesn't justify them of course.
And here is my dad holding them. Just one of the many times my dad has been a good sport and let me take a picture of him holding my roses, even though he felt stupid. I love you dad!!
I tried to get a picture of the flowers with my mom but she wouldn't let me.
My friend Melissa let me, though.
I even took a picture of them with my dog, Chico. Isn't he such a cute dog? He lives with my parents because I can't have dogs were I live and, plus, I couldn't take him away from my dad. My dad loves him. I have never seen my dad love a dog like he loves Chico. Plus, now with Ayla, I don't trust Chico around her. Chihuahuas are not kid-friendly, dogs.
Anyways, I hope every one has a wonderful Valentine's Day and gets to spend it with people they love. And that means not just their significant other. Valentine's Day is about love and that means anyone that you love. Share the love tomorrow!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
