Disappointment is one of the hardest things for me to deal with. I just have a hard time when my expectations don’t meet with reality. I am working on that.
Today was supposed to be a fun day. Today I planned an all-day adventure for Jacob and I. I was going to get all adorable for him and we were going to eat amazing food and run around San Diego doing fun things. It was going to be so romantic and exciting and just fun.
Instead, due to a very unfortunate trip to our ex-favorite restaurant yesterday, I am looking less-than adorable and we are laying on our couch, drinking tea, watching Parenthood (which is, by the way, the best show ever), and recovering from food poisoning.
But, instead of feeling sorry for myself and the disappointment of what was supposed to be a fun day, I am feeling grateful. Grateful for Jacob. Grateful that we are more in love today than we ever have been. Grateful that I don’t need an adventure today to remind myself how much he loves me. (I would say that still wanting to snuggle after last night proves how much he loves me…)
But most of all, I am grateful that his hair looks worse than mine right now, so that I can feel kind of cute under these circumstances. :)
And now, just because this is too adorable not to share, here’s a photo of Molly Mae from her first Valentine’s Day! :) Jacob got her a little red squeaky and she LOVED it. :)
Happy heart day. We love you all.
