happy hearts day!

Here's my little cupid last year...I can't believe how incredibly fast this sweet phase passed me by...Tyler and I were hoping for a Valentines this year in the form of two pink lines...but oh well, those two pink lines will just have to wait until after deployment.




Now, for this year. Truth be told, I'm not a big Valentines Day fan...Hubby and I actually have an agreement not to celebrate it...but for Isabella, now that's completely different. I have been gathering up little trifles here and there and stuffing them into a goody bag for her. Last night I even braved the mayhem of the Navy Exchange and I ventured to the florist to get her one of those mylar balloons she fancies so much...lemme tell ya, those sailors? they're serious about their Valentines. I've never seen so many moon-eyed men in my life, all of 'em clutching giant teddy bears for dear life...looked like a bunch of crazies, and I was right in the thick of 'em.

Isabella made me proud, she knows what's really important, she was instantly enamored by her box of chocolates, and even had the presence of mind to finger then sample each and every one before putting it back into the box. That's my girl, right there.
