Happy Valentine's Day!

I am an extremely lucky girl. My husband has been in the Marine Corps for about 2 years now. I am so thankful because we have gotten to spend 2 Valentine's in a row together :-) Technically 3 if you count the Valentine's right before he left for boot camp (the weekend we got engaged).

Sure, we have missed a few birthdays in this time but we have been lucky enough to also spend our Thanksgivings, Christmases, and New Years together. It makes this next year seem a little better when I think of how lucky I have been.

The one thing I will always be thankful to the military for is allowing my family to really appreciate the little things in life. When you can be genuinely happy because you got to see your husband on the same day 2 years in a row it makes life that much more special.

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3 Thank you for being my Valentine once again<3


  1. That is so sweet! I wish I could say the same, but it is definitely not. We have not spent 1 full Valentine's together. And we have missed every other holidays together! But I can say that the military definitely shows you how to appreciate the small things in life and be thankful for what you do have because chances are someone has had it worse than you.

  2. I know for a fact someone has had it worse than me. Most have had it worse. All you can do is appreciate what you do get and keep smiling.
