Obviously the boy pays attention when The Bachelor is on, amiright??! I cracked up at this one. While I was reading the card (that started like this) and then finished and turned around to hug him, he was standing in the doorway holding a single rose and actually SAID "Erika, will you accept this rose?" HAHAHA. It was pretty classic. Of course I accepted, gave him a hug and a kiss, and then exclaimed some nonsense about this rose meaning everything and how excited I am about this journey we are on. It was pretty classic. Too bad there were no camera crews to capture it.
It's our EIGHTH Valentine's Day, technically. We started dating about 3 days before V-Day in 2006, so we didn't really count that first one (that woulda been awkward...), but I did find this picture of myself at work on that day.
And for the record, I still wear that sweater. It's timeless. Or I'm stuck in a rut. One of those.
For a better picture of what life was really like back in our early days of dating-hood, please enjoy this real-life moment someone captured shortly after we became official.
If that doesn't look like a couple bound to stand the test of time, I don't know what does. I'm pretty sure that's a face Matt got really used to seeing. Ha.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends! (And in case you were wondering, Major Holidays such as this definitely call for a suspension of the Bird Food Diet. As if there were any doubt.)
