It is Valentine’s Day, my dear Amy. While I’ve been Ms. Grumpypants lately (we can thank the fritzy furnace for part of that), you somehow managed to find me the perfect Valentine’s gifts: a DVD of The Princess Bride, and a new sled. How on earth did you know that it was going to snow today?
So this is my valentine to you: a digital profession that, my sweet, I love you. In case the big goofy smiles on my face in each and every one of these pictures doesn’t clue you in.
I like to hike with you. You motivate me to actually get outside and get some fresh air once in a while. This photo was taken this summer, near Northampton. We didn’t see any hawks that day, but we did find a particularly difficult geocache.
You let me talk you into getting a second dog. We were in no way ready to have a second dog in our lives, but Otter wormed his way into my heart that day when we went out shopping for a post-hole digger, and you loved me enough to go along with my craziness.
You let my mom spoil us last winter with pedicures. It was your first one (you’ve since had a second) and even though you were a little freaked out by it, you were game.
You make me happy.Â So very happy.Â Look at us in our matching eyebrows and matching pearl necklaces and earrings and matching big smiles…
I love you, Ms. Amy.Â Happy Valentine’s Day.
