Lovey-Dovey Day

1:03 PM

I've been hearing it all week..."I hate Valentine's Day."

People are entitled to their opinion. But...

I love this holiday!

And you should too!

What better chance do we have to tell all the people in our lives, just how much they mean to us.

I'll be honest, Valentine's Day was hard when Randy was on his mission. I wanted someone to send me flowers and take me out to dinner and hold my hand. But it also taught me that all kinds of love are important, and people need to know that you matter to them!

So I have so many people that I should shout-out to and tell them how much they mean to me. I don't have time to do that, and you don't have time to read it, so here's my love letter to all of my dear friends on this lovey-dovey day.

To my lovely friends,

Thank you for supporting me, loving me, letting me be crazy and random and emotional. Thank you for showing me what friendship means. As you get older, it's easy for friendships to fall apart, and it becomes obvious very quickly who your true friends are. Thank you for being there as I've figured out who will stick around. You mean the world to me.

To my family,

I lucked out, and got the best family known to man. Thank you for supporting me as I'm planning a wedding, loving me when I'm a pain, and always being ready to talk and listen. You all inspire me and make me want to be better. I am so happy I get to spend eternity playing Boggle and eating caramel corn with you all!

And to the love of my life,
Randy, every little girl wants to marry the prince and live happily ever after. Thank you for making every fairy tale, real. It's a different type of fairy tale, neither of us are perfect and there are times we seriously drive each other crazy, but the best part of the fairy tale is that in spite of all of that, we stay together. You once said to me, "I love you for a million reasons, but I know I want to marry you because I love your ugly. I love the parts of you that nobody else gets to see, the vulnerable and sad, hurt, and upset parts." Thank you for showing me what love really is.

Now enough sap, excuse me as I finish my work day looking at my new watch, and getting ready for date night in the city!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Spread the love.
