a lifelong smile-maker.

Happy Valentine's Day! This is the eighth year {cv} and I have been valentines, but it feels like yesterday that we shared our first over fondue on a school night. I'm the silly girl who loves this holiday, even if we don't do much to celebrate it. I'm also the crazy lady who scrolls through our wedding photos at least once a week. The photos just bring our big day back to life...

We met at Georgetown one hazy July night in 2005. This photo was taken just two blocks from where our paths first crossed. One of my favorite moments from our wedding video came just after this photo was taken. I come up from this dip with the biggest smile on my face--and this photo always brings it back. On a lovey-dovey day like this one, I thought this photo fit the bill. It also reminds me how lucky I am to have this loving, funny, hard-working, giving, brilliant, and tremendously supportive man by my side for life :) He truly is my lifelong smile-maker.

However you spend your Valentine's Day, I hope it is filled with an extra dose of love--and maybe a little pink and red. {Speaking of which--don't forget to link up your festive outfits tomorrow for Friday's Fancies!} Happy Valentine's Day, friends! xoxo {av}
