Disneyland was incredible. valentime’s day was incredible. we started the day with exchanging gushy cards and husby surprised me with a single rose! how he got that in the car and kept it safe the whole ride to anaheim is beyond me, but there it was! and it made me melt a little, of course. we went to dinner at fire + ice again this year, and zack told me all these nice romantical things and we ate way too much food and then watched a totally romantic movie. Safe House. seen it? if so, you know i’m totally lying about it being romantic. it’s probably about the exact opposite. except there is a girlfriend/boyfriend thing going on in it with ryan reynolds, so hey! everybody wins! but really, it was good! too bad we were both dead tired and i, of course, never fails, fell asleep. but only a couple times, which is pretty good for me. ;)
i just wanted to post something i read on another blog, on here. you can read janae’s whole post here if you like, it really is something worth checking out. she talks about how important it is to fill your pitcher. once your pitcher is full then you can fill everyone’s around you, and what a great thing that is. :) anyway, i tried explaining this to zack last night at midnight (too late for me to form complete and coherent sentences, apparently) and i’m pretty sure i just confused both of us. but my favorite part, and what i was trying to explain last night to the hubster, was what janae put so eloquently, i can do nothing but quote her: Can you imagine how much better all of our relationships would be if our main focus was on what we gave to the other person in the relationship? this is something i need to keep in mind each and every day. to be a better wife, a better friend, a better sister and daughter. to give all of myself and make everyone i love feel totally, 100% loved. because they are.
