Sometimes we don't do holidays, sometimes all we can do is us....


And sometimes this is us.

It's not roses and heart-shaped sugar cookies or a fancy romantic night on the town.
It's hard, it's exhausting, it's humbling, it's a little bit scary.... but it's us.


And I love us—so it's alright with me.

Looks like a beautiful love filled evening. Sorry it was spent in a not so beautiful place. I hope your hubs gets better fast. We have spent many holidays in that same spot. The fun part is you can do a second Valentines when he gets out : ) Praying for you

This really struck a chord with me! Oh wait, I should introduce myself! My name is Amber, and I happened upon your blog! My daughter is 8 months old and has a very serious congenital heart disease (we haven't been able to take her home from the ICU yet:( I've been grappling with what other people have-healthy babies, time as a family out of the hospital, small stresses instead of huge ones-and what I don't. However, your one sentence of-and I love us, so its alright with me-it is so true! I am going to remember this whenever I feel jealous of what other families have-thanks for helping put things in perspective for me:) I wish you both the best of luck and will be sending prayers your way!

I spent almost 8mth in hospital, spending a birthday, christmas & new year in a bed. At first it really got me down, but the love of my family made the day as special as always!

Hope all goes well with the baby.

All my love xx
