And I thought I loved you then…

Geoffrey and I don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day.  He makes me dinner and we lay around being best friends.  Really it is not much different than any other evening. (Except occasionally he cuts carrots into the shape of hearts) ❤

So, with our non-celebration of this love-themed holiday, I think it makes perfect sense for me to feel all lovey-dovey on February 13th, not the 14th.   And by lovey-dovey, I mean emotional, hormonal, and pregnant…

Humans probably don’t get much more hormonal (or much more pregnant) than I am today, so I am just going to let these sappy feelings fly.

This song came on Pandora Radio today and reduced me to tears:

Now, in the next 15 days we are about to embark on the biggest emotional rollercoaster of our lives, but I am sure,

“We’ll look back someday, at this moment that we’re in, and I’ll look at you and say:

And I thought I loved you then…”

Happiness to the point of tears just doesn’t happen everyday – unless you are pregnant and are married to my husband.

Geoffrey,

Thank you for all of the joy and love you share with me everyday.

Happy February 13th !
