Scenes from Valentine's Day.























Spending time outside in unseasonably warm temperatures, special gifts and surprises galore,  a gourmet dinner to-go from the cutest little spot downtown, pink homemade cupcakes decorated lovingly with x's and o's, laughing the night away, and playing with Hudson and his new goodies -- all signs of a Valentine's well spent. 

*Big Thanks to G-Aunt Kaye for Hudson's handmade bag & presents! And to Gennie & Grandad for Elmo & the surprise! He loves all of his Valentine's surprises!

p.s. I am featured on the lovely Shalyn's blog today....go check out my most embarrassing story and stay there awhile! I guarantee little miss Shalyn will have you laughing out loud. She is hilarious & her blog is awesome!
