This year was the first snowy Valentines Day that we've had since living in Idaho in 2010!
|Snow is so pretty (when you don't see it very often).|
One of mine and Jared's favorite holiday traditions is to think back on how we celebrated past holidays every year together. I'm so glad I have this blog, because I'm starting to have a hard time remembering what we did 6+ years ago! Now, I can remember details that I otherwise would have forgotten with a click of a button :)
Valentines #1 together 2009- Soon after Jared and I started dating, I moved to Hawaii to go to school (for one semester) while stayed at BYU-Idaho. However, Jared surprised me on Valentines Day by flying to Hawaii (sorry I think I've told this story like 500 times haha). We had an amazing day full of snorkeling, parasailing, and exploring Honolulu.
Valentines #2 together 2010- By this time, we had been married for 6 months, and were living in Idaho. We got our dog, Bauer, for Valentines Day!
Valentines #3 together 2011- This was our first Valentines Day with Kyler in our family. We were living in California for Jared's internship (only for 3 months so we didn't move any of our furniture there). We didn't know anyone who could babysit Kyler for us... So we just had a date at home :)
Valentines #5 together 2013- Most of the day was spent driving around town looking at potential houses to buy, which may sound boring, but it was a really exciting day for us!
Valentines #6 together 2014- That would be this year!
We didn't have work or school (because it snowed) so we had a nice relaxing day at home. We were going to go out to eat as a family, but decided to get take-out instead. Eating at home was much nicer than waiting 5 hours to eat in an over crowded noisy restaurant :)
I wonder what next Valentines Day will look like!
