My top 5 Valentine's day gift ideas

The week of Valentine's day is funny.It is a frenetic search of: What am I going to give her/him (yes girls are not always that romantic, thank you very much, or just in lack of imagination -_-)But HEY !What about seeing a movie :) That's our plan this year.

It was so sweet and thoughtful of him, especially since we both knew how much I had craved strawberries during my pregnancy. Attached was a note that I still have: “We would be lost without you. Love you.” That night, my husband also gave me a handmade card featuring a beautiful picture of our baby, which I still have to this day....more
