Happy First…or ummm Second Valentine’s Day

Kent and I were laughing today when we were remembering “A Valentine for my Wife” card I got Kent five years ago. No joke…I really did.  Then, in the middle of our reminiscing Kent left the room and returned with the card!

card 1 card 2
card 3 card 4
card 5 card 6

Why? Well, Kent’s a nontraditional kind of guy and I love this about him.  He cooks, cleans, does laundry, remembers important dates, irons, pays the bills, keeps me organized and can find anything I’ve misplaced.  At the time I got him the card, he did most of these things much better than me. We’d only been married a year and I had some growth to do in my role as a wife.  If I’m going to be honest, he still does most of these things better than me and I’m totally ok with it.  I’m a lucky girl like that.  Anyway, to show my appreciation I got him this card. He opened it and you know what he said?  He said, “It’s not our first Valentine’s Day…it’s our second.” And he was right.
