Valentine's Day in our home this year was a simple one. We didn't give anything special.
A few times leading up to Valentines Day, Ty asked me what I wanted.
I told him 'nothing'.
He asked again, hinting that maybe I want the rug I've been eyeing for our dining room.
I told him again, 'I don't need anything.'
I've started to realize that the more I buy, the more I want. The less I get, the more thankful I am for the things I do receive.
I want to buy less, give more. I didn't get roses or candy.
Instead, I gave Scarlett some treats and spent the day blowing bubbles, helping her make Daddy a Valentine's Day card with some brownies, and then we watched a movie together. Ty worked late so when he did get home, there was no time for a romantic dinner or a night out.
We had left overs.
I love that we don't have to be extravagant to know that we love each other.
Little, thoughtful things that don't cost a penny are just as good.
Of course I swoon at the thought of romantic dinners, jewelry and flowers, but I didn't get any of those things this year.
The fact that we didn't do anything special or buy anything for each other and I still felt as loved as the night he proposed, that is important to me.
Ty came home and picked me up with a big hug, as he always does, every day, every time he enters that door.
He kissed me and told me he missed me.
That was enough.
I hope you all had a Wonderful Valentine's Day!
