My Funny Valentine

Oh funny Valentine. Isn’t it funny that we’ve made it this far? Gone are the days when we could go anywhere at any time without logging around strollers and car seats and double checking to make sure everyone was on board. Gone are the days when we could cuddle up and watch a movie as loud as we wanted whenever we wanted without pausing it whenever we heard footsteps.

Oh funny Valentine, where has the time gone? It’s seems like it was just yesterday when every weekend was an adventure waiting to happen. When we had serious and deep romantic conversations and would spend hours in a restaurant lost in each others’ gaze. I remember the times when our phone conversations would last forever and only consisted of lovey dovey stuff.

Oh funny Valentine, I miss those days. Nevertheless we’ve traded in those days for diaper bags and training wheels on bikes. For phone conversations that consist of reminders to pick up something. For sick days and baking cookies, for birthday parties with tons of goodies. I’ve traded in my sanity to be your nurse, wife, maid, alarm clock, personal assistant, executive assistant, “sexutary”, personal shopper and the list goes on. Nonetheless I wouldn’t trade back in my sanity for anything else.

Oh funny Valentine, I love these days. We’ve made it through plenty and oddly enough I’m not empty. We keep refueling our love for each other and the life we’ve created. I’m grateful to have you in my life and I’m thankful that you made me your wife. I look forward to growing old and gray with you. Here’s to sitting on a porch on a rocking chair while watching our grand children play in the yard. To making lemonade and telling our children stories of our amazing love.

-The End.

P.S. I tried my best to make it rhyme and got away with a few lines. Please don’t judge me ;)


  1. Oh that was really cute! Where has the time gone, huh? I ask myself that everyday...

    And hello - from a fellow USMC wife and new follower :)

  2. Awww! Makky that was too cute. May God continue to bless your marriage.

    And if you find your time, can you see if mine is with it, please? I've seemed to have lost some somewhere! ;)

  4. Oh I love this post! How wonderful!

    Found you on MBC.

  5. that's so sweet. Isn't funny how we can be so satisfied with so much confusion. It's the best kind in the world. Cherish it always.

    I followed you from Supah's blog.

  6. Hi LaTonya. Thanks for stopping by/following me.

    Yes it's definitely true that we can be satisfied with confusion. I have tons of confusion day in and day out but I thrive off of it somehow.

    Have a great weekend/Valentine's Day. :)
