ST. VALENTINE

Happy Valentine's Day to you! Whether you are married, dating, or happily single, today is about celebrating love and cherishing those you care for. :) Jon and I don't usually do much for Valentine's Day...but I do love those little conversational hearts, especially the tart ones!

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Valentine's Day memories.


Six years ago today, I was a senior in high-school. I was attending a private school in Grayson, GA, and Jon and I were only a little over a year into our dating journey. At the time, Jon was taking most of his high-school classes at a local college, so we didn't get a chance to see each other a lot. That and my parents were fairly strict when we first started dating. ;) 

I had just finished class and was walking down to the cafeteria when I noticed some of the students giving me the "a-surprise-is-coming" look. Suspiciously, I looked around the corner and saw my sweet boyfriend holding flowers and a picnic basket. I was completely surprised and overwhelmed by his thoughtfulness. I'm pretty sure my face turned 6 shades of red. 

He made croissant sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries, and brought my favorite drink, cream soda in a glass bottle. It was so sweet and completely made my day. It was one of those moments, of many, that I realized how special Jon was and how thankful I was (and am) to have him in my life. Here's a sweet little dorky picture from that day:


This would be 18 year old Jon and 17 year old Savannah. Jon wore his hair long in high-school and for a good part in college...and I straightened the life out of my hair, but quickly embraced my natural curl when I went to college. What cuties we are!!

Jon and I are celebrating Valentine's Day tomorrow, when I get back from Orlando, with a date night. I can't wait to see him soooon! 

Do you have a favorite Valentine's Day memory?? Please share!

  2. Such a cute story!

    I still have a very sweet card my Mr. Wonderful gave me on one of our first Valentine's as a couple. It had the sweetest, most heartfelt note I'd ever gotten in my life. I like to open it every year & see how our love has grown every year since then.

    Happy Valentine's Day!
