February is a good month for us. For one thing, there’s Valentine’s Day which has become one of my favorite holidays. It never meant anything to me until I met Bryan, but he quickly changed my mind. Since that first time we celebrated together, every year has been special. We aren’t over the top celebrators, but we have our fun traditions and we always make it special. I know a lot of people are against ‘made up’ holidays, but I don’t see any negatives with taking a day to celebrate your love.
It’s also a time for us to reflect on our marriage as our anniversary is on the 15th. We didn’t plan it that way due its proximity to Valentine’s Day, but it certainly makes the day sweeter for us. Two days of celebrating each other is always better than one!
Our wedding date was actually chosen due to the Olympics taking place which allowed Bryan could get away from work for 2 weeks. Romantic 😉
And it just so happens that Bryan’s birthday falls a few days behind so we get an entire week of celebrating!
So for us February is all about love and family without the rushing that comes with other months like December. There isn’t anything better than that!
This year we are escaping the cold for a much needed adult only vacation to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. I’m pretty sure the 3rd is one of the most special. Since I am full swing in romantic reminiscing, I thought what better idea than to re-share our engagement announcement video from 3.5 years ago. It’s been a few years since I watched it myself and it instantly brought back so many memories and emotions. I still smile when I think of how he was able to completely surprise me with not only the proposal but the ring. I don’t think I’ve ever shared that story here, so someday I will.
But for now, enjoy! I hope you all are finding sweet ways to mark the month of love!
