feb 14 was bryan and i's valentersary...valentines/anniversary in case it wasn't obvious...9 years of valentines...its a long and complicated story and really the only people who can truly appreciate it are the few who were around at the time...the short story of it is that it is when bryan decided he wanted to be with me too (i had already made it clear to him my feelings...he just needed a little more time:) i really appreciate our valentine's tradition - we stay home and forego the fixed menu price jacking at restaurants and bryan cooks me an amazing dinner - lucky me! it usually includes shrimp - he makes the most AMAZING shrimp...i am sure he cooks them all in butter...i don't know and don't want to know because i truly enjoy every bite! this year he went all out - lobster, steak, shrimp, asparagus - edible flowers - i had to take a picture of it...i am so blessed to have such a good cook for a husband (not to mention his other amazing qualities, which i won't go into here and if you know him then you probably know most of them anyway). which is kinda funny because i was telling my niece katlyn (who is soon to be 15) that her uncle bryan is really good at cutting hair (she needed a hair cut) and she responded, "what ISN'T uncle bryan good at?" i know...its annoying isn't it?
