Valentine's Day वैलेंटाइन'स ड

हैप्पी वैलेंटाइन' डे! Happy Valentine's Day!

The girls and I thought we were going to a piano bar for mocktails for Valentine's Day...we were so excited and I even got spiffied up all nice! Turns out, the piano player was sick, so we went to Baskin Robbins instead and then home to watch a movie. It was a nice night out with the girls.

Even though I am currently without pursuers and in a position which does not encourage it in any way (dating is against company policy and there's no good, single, like-minded fellas in my city), I am still in love. I was reminiscing on old Valentine's Days and just thinking how thankful I am that my Maker is my Husband. He's been so sweet to give me so many good things.

Some of my favorite Valentine's Day memories:

1. My Daddy gave me my first bass guitar for Valentine's Day many years ago. It was from his own band when he was in the 8th favorite Valentine's gift ever.

2. My junior year of high school this awesome boy I met in a band, whom I really liked, gave me a pink rose (my favorite color at the time) and a package of powdered dough nuts--The weekend he met me, this older guy was totally making fun of me for smelling like powdered dough nuts (the scent of my deodorant at the time).

3. I planned a Valentine's Date Extravaganza for the girls in my hall when I was an RA, along with the guys in a hall of our brother dorm. The girls got 7 dates in one night and we all had a great time with driving to Springfield, an art gallery, dinner at Fazoli's, scavenger hunt at Bass Pro Shop, and desert at Steak-n-Shake.

4. The Valentine's Date Extravaganza was actually a few days before the real holiday. On the actual night of, some of my girls and I went out with some of my guy friends. The fellas took us to a cave in the middle of the woods outside of town. It was so fun! We sat on the riverside in the dark and sang worship songs was completely romantic in a higher kind of way. :) Then, after returning home, the girls and I snuck out on campus and started a mud had rained all week long and you only had to push your hand into the wet earth to pull out a big clump of squishy mud. We had so much fun and ended up the night creating our own mud slide, which just kept getting longer and longer. So much fun!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!His faithful love endures forever.
