My Funny Valentine

I love Valentine's Day. I know that it's been given a bad rep, because just like with every holiday, we've managed to over-commercialize it. And perhaps, Valentine's Day was only about making a buck from the get-go. I don't know for sure, and who am I to speculate?

However, regardless of its origins, I think there is something truly beautiful about it. Could you do something romantic with your significant other on any other day of the week? Of course you could! Could you take the time out to tell your friends and family how much you love and appreciate them without attaching a box of conversation hearts? You betcha! But the truth of the matter is, we are usually so busy dealing with our own day-to-day, the romance gets put on the backburner and we just make assumptions that our family and friends know that we "heart" them. Valentine's Day gives a gentle reminder to make those sentiments known. Moreso, it gives us an opportunity to put thoughtful consideration and time into making our sentiments known...and any woman would agree with me that thoughtfulness and time trump any amount of money spent.

In case there was any doubt in your mind, I am madly in love with my husband. I wanted to make a special post for him on Valentine's Day, but his Valentine's Day has already come and gone. So take this as your cue to share your loving sentiments with the special people in your life every day of the year :)

The day we were married, we shared our first dance as husband and wife to Keith Urban's "Making Memories of Us." I am so not enough of a techie to make this into a video, so I'll work with the skills God gave me. But you should definitely play the video of Keith Urban--if for no other reason than his voice is like honey and he is awful nice to look at :)

(But I think my husband also is so I will be posting pictures of him as well lol)

The Video

I'm gonna be here for you baby
I'll be a man of my word

Speak the language in a voice
That you have never heard :)

I wanna sleep with you forever
And I wanna die in your arms

In a cabin by a meadow
Where the wild bees swarm

And I'm gonna love you
Like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust
Makin' memories of us

I wanna honor your mother
And I wanna learn from your pa

I wanna steal your attention
Like a bad outlaw (haha!)

And I wanna stand out in a crowd for you
A man among men

I wanna make your world better
Than it's ever been

And I'm gonna love you
Like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust
Makin' memories of us

We'll follow the rainbow
Wherever the four winds blow

And there'll be a new day
Comin' your way

I'm gonna be here for you from now on
This you know somehow
You've been stretched to the limits
But it's alright now

And I'm gonna make you a promise
If there's life after this
I'm gonna be there to meet you
With a warm, wet kiss

And I'm gonna love you
Like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust
Makin' memories of us

Happy Valentine's Day---I mean Wednesday--Soldier :) I love you!
