I love this guy.

With several small children in the house, our environment is rarely conducive to one-on-one quality Mommy & Daddy time. So when a day like Valentine's rolls around, we do our best.

I made Kevin my version of the first Valentines dinner out that we shared- even though I knew he wouldn't make the connection. He brought home my favorite bottle of chardonnay- even though he knew I'd take about three sips.

Chloe was kind enough to take the little kids upstairs, so we could engage in some serious adult conversation over dinner for once. We covered the day's happenings on Facebook, rose ceremony predictions, and whether or not we should go tanning prior to our San Diego trip next month (his idea). I think it took a total of two minutes before they were all circling the table again.

Dishes. Laundry. Baths...

Fast-forward to bedtime and we (I) dive into the Trader Joe's ice cream sandwiches, then both pass out on the couch during House.

Another romantic Valentine's evening at home... good thing I had the world's best husband to share it with. I wouldn't have it any other way.

(Kevin on the walk to the Farmer's Market last weekend...
Walk in a straight line? Ridiculous. Hard core Parkour? Of course.)

I love your adult conversation.
Sounds v-e-r-y familiar. :)

And TJ's ice cream sandwiches were our dessert last night, too. Except we went with the mint. I guess I'll have to go back next week to try your version. Just for comparison, of course. :)

You two are perfect for each other. :)

I don't think people really understand that Kevin physically CAN'T walk in a straight line... or hold still, for that matter, lol.

Love you guys. :)
