The Valentine

Saturday, February 14, 2009 happened to be the first date Aaron and I went on, which makes Monday not only Valentine's Day, but our two year anniversary. I like to get Aaron two separate gifts, one for our anniversary and one for Valentine's Day (something silly or fun).

About a week ago, I was looking through the Isthmus, a free weekly newspaper with news and information about what is going on throughout the next week in Madison. There was an ad that said "submit your Valentine to The Isthmus and we'll publish it next week!"

Since we didn't have internet set up yet, I had to snag Aaron's fancy phone while he took a shower and quickly submit a short note and a photo of us at a Detroit Tigers game.

I picked up a copy of the paper on Thursday and looked through the "Book of Love" to find my note. There weren't many pictures, so I wasn't expecting ours to be in it. As I got close to the last page of the "book of love" I accepted that they probably hadn't printed it and it was only on the online slideshow.

But then, there we were, snuggled between two babies.
Cuteee... I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself and Aaron loved it.
