Backsplash for Valentine's Day

I've never been a big Valentine's Day person. I honestly believe it is way to commercialized and we shouldn't need a holiday to tell our loved ones how much we care. But today I am missing spending time with my cutest, sweetest Valentine.

I imagined a night in, just the three of us. I pictured sweet baby cuddles and obnoxious gifts for my 8 month old on this day. I imagined steaks and wine with our little girl joining us in her highchair at the table. I saw cute pink outfits with outrageous flower headbands. I should be one of those moms on Facebook posting adorable pictures of my daughter all dressed up and making baby crafts for her daddy.

Tonight is nothing like I imagined. Tonight, instead of our sweet family if three spending a night celebrating our love, my husband and I are working on tile backsplash in our kitchen over pizza and beers. Backsplash that has been needing to be placed since Avery was born. A project we've put off for the last 8 months.

Why we chose tonight is beyond me. Not only am I down from this stupid holiday but I'm down because we are finishing a project we started the weekend before Avery was born. Another step forward in our life without her. And again, time keeps pushing me.

❤Happy Valentine's Day Sweet Girl! Mommy and Daddy miss you baby girl. 💐

  1. Hugs. I cried missing Sammy & Andy last night, too. I should be on maternity leave and posting pics of my two Valentines like everyone else, too... *sigh*
