The first Valentine’s Day Todd & I were married I had a 13 week old puppy. I was pretty obsessed with him. I mean, I was so obsessed with the dog that I quit working out in the evenings so I get home from sooner just so I could cuddle…with the dog. I had turned into one of those dog parents that I couldn’t stand!
That year Valentine’s Day landed on a work day, so on my way home from work, I stopped by a friend’s office to say hello. She was cleaning up her work space and a co-worker of hers came to introduce herself. She immediately asked me what my V-day plans were since I was newlywed. Bow-chika-chika-wow-wow, or so she thought.
I told her I was going home to play with my new dog. Insert photo of blank, glaring stare I got from the woman.
At which point she told me all about how she was a true romantic who wrote her husband love notes every day just to remind him that she loved him after 30 years. And she informed me that if I wanted to be married to the dog, then I could find out how long that would make me happy.
But seriously you guys, which one would you have wanted to go home to that evening?!
This year, forget the dog, I’m kickin’ it with the baby. Cause he’s pretty stinkin’ cute too!
