Happy Valentines Day (a day late)!

Happy Valentines Day from me and my little cherub... she totally fits the part with these chubby legs...

I want to say something to all of the single girls in my life in honor of the "day of love." First of all, you are amazing. I can think of at least 5-7 girls in my life who may be feeling a little down today as many people celebrate what they may not have found just yet. You are cherished and loved by so many, especially me. Please take heart in knowing this is my prayer for you:

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you
with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power,
together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long
and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:16-19

Here is my Valentine gift from Mitch and Scarlett. A pink, LONG shirt (I am obsessed with long shirts), turquoise earrings and a bag of "tiny Toblerone." They took a little Daddy-Daughter date to Target on Saturday while I was at a baby shower for my friend Meredith. How sweet is that? Mitch cracked me up BIG time when, right before he gave me my gift, he said, "You could wear this with white shorts, it would look really good." HA! What? Since when has this white legged girl ever worn white shorts. That man makes me laugh. I think jeans will look just fine babe :)

Here was Scarlett's little "gift" to me... I put her in her play pen and ran to the bathroom for nothing short of 5 seconds and came back to find this...

The little "cherub" sitting in a sea of multi-grain Cheerios. Oh my. She somehow reached the bag and thought it would be helpful to get her own snack.
Well, she did look so cute wearing the Valentine bib my mom embroidered for her.

Mitch and I had a low-key night together. He had an intramural basketball game (reliving the glory days!! ha!) so I put Scarlett to bed by myself. He picked up Papa Murphy's Pizza for us earlier so I baked that (they had a special heart-shaped pizza!) and made a spinach salad with ripe pears and poppy seed dressing. We just sat at our little dining room table and tried to remember every Valentine's Day we have spent together. This was our 8th. We got 7 out of 8.

I hope you had a great day...no matter what you think your "love" status may be!

One final look at this year's cherub who is currently on the move....
