All You Need is Love (and Post-it Notes)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I woke up this morning to find that sweet Doug had stayed up ’til all hours of the night “decorating” the entry to our living room with red & white streamers and balloons for me.  Then I walked a bit further and found he had scattered yummy chocolate hearts all over the coffee table, set out a beautiful pot of yellow-tinted red tulips, a box of truffles, Patch Adams and a heart-melting card for me, as well.  Every year he one-ups himself, I’ll say!  :)

As I was walking to the kitchen, I stole one more glance at the streamers and balloons…and I realized that what I previously thought were pale pink squares of streamer (taped onto the red pieces, as extra decoration) were actually, in fact, tons and tons of little post-it notes with sweet messages on them!  One time before (I don’t remember if it was V. Day or not) Doug put a few post-it notes around the house for me to find, and I still have most of those saved in a memory box somewhere.  :)  But these little pink ones…well, they just really were amazing.  Although I cannot share with you exactly what most of them SAID (ew, gross, i know)…let me just say that he is absolutely 100% precious.

(You are my only chunkcritter, Dougley, and I love you.)

Dear friends, I hope YOUR day was filled with little reminders of how much YOU are loved.
