Its An Everyday Thing

Happy Valentines Day! 

Happy Valentines Day to my wonderful husband!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day today, whether you celebrate Valentines Day or not. For me personally, Valentines Day has never been a huge thing. Of course, after living in a sorority house for three years and seeing at least 3 dozen flower bouquets delivered every year, I certainly don't mind the flowers and chocolate! However, I think the real meaning of Valentines Day has gotten a little bit skewed. People are now focusing on expressing their love this one day of the year- and personally, I think thats a little bit of BS.

To me, Valentines Day is about appreciating and expressing your love for your significant other. And I don't think thats something you should just do this one day of the year (doing this on anniversaries and birthdays doesn't count either). For me, its the little, everyday things that matter the most.

Its Nick carrying my hockey bag for me (because he wants to).
Its me cleaning out his coffee machine and adding water to it.
Its Nick cleaning out the junk from the bottom of the sink (because I think its gross and won't touch it).
Its me reminding Nick of birthdays and important dates (just to help him out).
Its Nick bringing me Ben & Jerry's (and remembering my favorite flavor!)
Its me cleaning & doing laundry while he's off working, to make things nice for us.
Its Nick folding the socks (because I hate pairing them up).

I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. A while back, while I was dinging around on the internet I came across an article on relationships and appreciating your partner. The message from the article that stuck with me was two-fold: At the end of the day, look back and think about one nice thing your partner did for you today (be it something little, like taking the trash out, or big). Then, reflect and think about one nice thing you did for your partner. So, what have you done for your partner lately?
