Valentine 2013 Never Fully Dressed
It's cheesy, a Hallmark Card driven holiday, I know. But- I do rather love Valentine's day. And yes, I am excited to share it with The Boy, though really, we are disgustingly lovey-dovy all the time (go ahead, ask the workers at our favorite restaurant  It is PDA city. I am sorry.). What I love about Valentine's  is sharing love of all kinds- family and friends as well as romantic. Even kindness towards strangers (this post on the subject seems very inspiring!) My family has always emphasized this with my father getting valentines for all "his girls" (and us for him, of course!). Once he even sent me a rose during school and signed it a "Secret Admirer" so I could seem very cool and mysterious to my peers. Um, but this opportunity to Be Cool went over my head and I told anyone who asked that it was probably my dad. But how sweet of him is that?

What about you? Any cool plans? No matter what the day holds in store for you, know that I have appreciated your presence on this blog; whether you have commented and deepening friendships have resulted or if you've just been a silent readers, thank you.

All that said- Valentine's seems like the perfect opportunity to Talk Wedding since some of you have expressed interest in our on-going planning. The good (amazing actually, I can't believe it!) news is that most of big things- like catering, and the reception site etc.- are done. These are not particularly visual steps so far, so sorry for a lack of visuals. I did get my dress all picked out and shoes are on their way, so maybe more pictures might be forth coming?

Oh- and that photo above? May or may not be one from our engagement shoot. Just sayin'.
