Why We Work

We work because I'm a dreamer and he's a realist.

We work because he will give me a back massage if I give him the TV remote.

We work because he leaves me little love notes around the house.

We work because he lets me make vegetarian meals for dinner sometimes.

We work because we both have big dreams and goals.

We work because he saves and convinces me to save.

We work because he doesn't like avocado (GIMME!) and will save the crinkled up tortilla chips at restaurants or in the bag for me because he knows they're my favorite.

We work because he makes my interests his interests.


We work because I put him first and he does the same.

We work because we love each other's friends and families.

We work because he will randomly bust into dance with me in the kitchen. 

We work because he puts up with my sometimes crazy mood swings and worrying over little things.

We work because we disagree on things...we fight...but then we make up. And when we make up, I know he still loves me and truly wants what is best for us.

We work because I will surprise him with his favorite snacks from the gas station randomly.

We work because he is the most amazing daddy to our fur baby.

We work because he makes me a better person.

We work because we support each other and after all these years he still puts up with all my crazy photo ops.

  {holy young! from our honeymoon}

We work because at the end of the day I would stand on that alter and marry him all over again.

Happy love day to my special valentines, Billy (and Rocky!) And to all of you!


Speaking of Valentine's day, the kind people from the not-for-profit organization Accessories Council sent us their amazing Valentine's Day Gift Bag! 

The gift bag included items from some of their most notable designers. They really hooked us up! Inside was Under Armour sunglasses (Billy's favorite!), three beautiful scarves, a gift certificate for a pair of Dr. Scholl's shoes, Soxxy non-slip socks, and more.

This weekend I'm looking forward to the temperatures being ABOVE freezing, celebrating with Billy tomorrow over a nice dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, and hopefully organizing the disaster that I like to call our master closet.

Not much else on the agenda and I'm pretty happy about that.

I hope everyone has a happy day, whether you choose to celebrate or not! xo!
