Okay, So I absolutely love Valentines Day. I know so many people who hate it because they think it's a holiday for couples, but I guess my mom just did a great job celebrating it with us, because I've never thought of it like that. I have always seen it as a holiday where you get to show all the people you love that you love them, not just a significant other. (I won't deny that some of the Valentine's days without a significant other had at least a little bit of longing in them, but even on those ones, I genuinely enjoyed).

Growing up, Valentine's day was a day that started with red heart shaped pancakes and red milk...yes, red milk. (I'm sure the stores made a great deal of prophet from my mom's purchase of food coloring for various holidays). There were always valentines from (and more importantly for) friends, and chocolate to go around. I loved making valentines for my family as well. When I got into college there were always some sort of flowers as well (mostly from my mom). Overall it was just an awesome day!

So ever since Christmas I have been thinking of ways to celebrate Valentines day with my own little family.

One of the things I decided to do was post a new thing that I love about my husband every day until valentines day. (There is a plethra of choices to choose from, but I have narrowed it down to 14.)

So, Number one -

I love how Bart Makes me laugh. And it's not just when I'm in a good mood either. It seems like he can get me to laugh no matter what. Even if I'm sad or tired or mad at him he comes up with some way to get a laugh out of me. I really hate it when he makes me laugh when I'm mad at him because it makes him think I'm not mad at him any more which I still am!....well, sort of. ;o)

Anyway, I heard somewhere that people who laugh live longer. If that's true, thanks to my husband, I will be living for a very long time.
