My 2 Sweethearts

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you who celebrate. This weekend I celebrated the holiday by spending some quality time with my boyfriend, Mike. And although my son was with his dad this weekend, I had to include him in this post too, because he's the other sweetie of my heart. :)

Just a few quick things I find quite lovable about my honey:
After finding out about how much I love cowboys, he dressed up and pretended to be a real one in downtown Nashville and for a dancing night at a country bar - adorable! Woke me up one earrrrly morning to watch the sunrise. Designated an official m.o.p. for us. hahaha! Taught me how to whistle with a blade of grass. Is nice to my friends and family. Breaks into crazy dialects with me just for fun. Gives me piggy back rides when I get tired of walking. Likes to thrift, just like me. Strong hands. Incredibly gentle. Sweetly affectionate. Loves his animals. Loyal to his family. Told me I'd look pretty with gray hair! And will occasionally sing to me if I plead long enough. (I looooove that so much!)

singin' Frank Sinatra after our Valentine's dinner. ( hope I'm not in trouble for posting this!) hahah!

And my little Valentine. . .
I'm getting so into the mommy blogs lately. I especially adore reading the blogs of women who have just recently become mothers. It takes me back to all of my dear memories of when my son was younger and I have realllly started to miss those times lately because he is already 11! Many bittersweet tears come with watching a child grow up, I've realized! Just want to keep him young forever I guess.

my favorite photo I keep at my desk (age 3)

Quite possibly the best love letter I've ever received. heehehe :D

Just one of the MANY valentines I'll be keeping forever. (2nd grade)
Growing up soooooooooo fast.

Can't wait to hug these two later on today when I see them.

Hope you all enjoy this holiday with your own sweethearts, blog friends!



  1. Serenaded with Frank Sinatra? He sounds like a KEEPER!

    Your son is ADORABLE. That love letter is so cute. Definitely melted my heart a little just reading it.

    Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day! ♥

  2. So sweet Jess! Your guy definitely sounds like a keeper.

    I love that letter & pic. Sometimes I look at Jack and I can't fathom anything sweeter than a 3 year old boy.

    Happy Valentines Day!

  3. well i have to say you are a lucky lady!
    what charming bf and such a cutie!
    and an adorable son, sounds like your weekend was amazing :)

  4. Thank you for your sweet thoughts.
    Love is HARD WORK, isn't it girls? And it needs maintenance, but I'm so glad me and my honey are still together.

    Heidi, I completely agree. Lukas is the apple of my eye, forever! xo


I really appreciate your comments, thank you. ♥
