Snippets: Valentines and Stress

Life lately, according to iPhone pictures:
1. a couple of the valentines treats from my mom |  2. my favorite cuties, snuggling | 3. homemade heart-shaped kale pizza for dinner on Valentines Day | 4. pizza is love | 5. this place may be our backyard soon | 6. pretty sunset the other night | 7. we've had spring like weather lately; Pippin loves it and riding with the windows down | 8. a Pippin panic while Will filled up gas | 9. .... continued

The last couple of weeks have been a huge blur. There are a lot of transitions happening at once and it is all rather intimidating. We are going to be taking a few risks, because we have confidence they will be worth it, but that means my anxiety and stress has been at an all time high for a countless number of days. It is strange, when we come to points like this in our relationship where we are facing hardships and difficult decisions; they some how always bring us so incredibly close. I think it says a lot that when I'm worried, all I want to do is hold you. So, we had a very low key Valentines Day, in fact we spent all of it at home. We have been nonstop trouble-shooting and problem-solving lately, so we took a day off. We binge-watched a few episodes of the new season of House of Cards and I made us a pizza. It was a great refresh, and a great opportunity to brainstorm even more. I absolutely love simple moments like that, sharing our dreams with each other.

We're going to do great things together, darling. It may take some time, but oh I can feel it.

  1. I'm so glad you have each other to rely on! What a great thing to have in a relationship. Love the pizzas as hearts too.

  2. my husband loves house of cards! For some reason the show makes me really depressed so I always watch anime in another room :P

    I'm hope your risks help you achieve your dreams. You guys make such a cute couple (probably an overused cliche but in your case it is totally true!)

    there is nothing wrong inn my book with a low key valentines day...that so us too!

  4. It's so good that you can lean on each other in stressful situations. No one likes to be in those situations, but it's always better when you don't feel alone!

  5. I couldn't agree more, there is nothing that brings people together like sharing dreams.

  6. beautiful photos. a lovely stay-at-home valentines is my favorite!
