My First Valentine's Day As A Married Lady

I figured my first married Valentine's Day deserved commemeration, as did the absolutely excellent job my lovely husband did with spoiling me for it!

He woke me up this morning with what may have been the sweetest gift ever, this gorgeous vintage locket from Etsy seller nouveaumotley:

It opens, of course (like all of the most romantic lockets do):

And inside of it, the Mister had printed his wedding vows to me in teeny tiny little font and folded up the paper so that it would fit. So now I always have a way to literally carry his vows with me. I love it! We are both such saps.

Later on, he came home with a bouquet of a half a dozen red roses. Gentlemen who aren't already experts at this stuff, are you listening up?

And tonight we're getting to splurge on a very expensive Italian dinner out, courtesy of a gift card we received as a present from my parents a few weeks back, as part of their "thank you" for watching my sisters for ten days.

Add that to the audition I rocked this morning (thank you again, Ilona Pierce, for teaching me how to nail that Irish dialect!), and the decent weather outside, and this is shaping up to be quite the marvelous first married Valentine's Day. Hope all of you lovelies are having a beautiful day, as well.


  1. That is so sweet! What a lovely present - he knows how to take care of his new bride! :)

  2. That is precious! I was commenting that this is my last Valentine's Day before we get married! Weee!

  3. That is the most romantic thing EVER. The vows--wow! Swoon.

    Happy Valentine's Day!
