We all were sick, with my parents still visiting since Christmas and a few other wrenches into the day, but we still made the best of it. :) We got Swiss Chalet take out, a family meal, and all ate together in the living room. Baby girl loved eating picnic style. We exchanged cards with each other, every year for our Anniversary (January) or Valentine's Day, and we agree upon which before hand, we enchange cards that list at least three reasons why we love each other, are thankful for each other, or to encourage each other. It has become such a special practice. We keep them to read through the years. We hope we never have a really bad year where we question each other's love, or wonder why we even love the other, but if we do, we hope these will come in handy to remind us why we do really love each other, and how we've built this love to last.
We also exchanged these gifts with each other.
The Duke got me this puppy dog to add to my collection. I now have four, all from him.
I made these two sets of cards for the Duke. The love ones had things on them. One was a night to himself, one is a date night in, he chooses the movie, one is picking out a gift for himself, one is a free wish, and so on. :) I did 8 of each this time, and made up extras for another time.
I did a set of naughty cards too. ;) I was going to write things on these, but in the end, decided to leave them blank so that he can fill them in as he likes. ;) He seemed happy with these. hehehe
These are books we'd found by mistake on amazon, and we decided to order them because they had really good reviews. The Leading and Supportive Love only came in today, and we wanted to start with it first, so I am excited to read them together. :) They are about D/s type marriages, which we find we do along with DD, so I am very excited to see if they are any good. I won't lie, I'm also looking forward to the one on one time with the Duke to read together, and pick each other's brains on hopefully some new thoughts and ideas about this lifestyle. :)
I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day too, even if things weren't perfect. :)
