Better Late Than Never

I went up north earlier this week, to visit another of my very best friends before she entered the MTC. It was soooo good to see her, because she has lived in Virginia for a long time. So naturally I hardly ever get to see her [if only I had a private jet...].

John had to stay home because of work. I was gone on Valentines day, so we agreed to celebrate it after I got back. We both aren't huge on Valentines Day, but I like to set aside some time to celebrate the love we have for each other. Our love day lasted for about two days. Yesterday, John brought home a dozen roses. The best part is that they were on sale! We decided that from now on we'll always celebrate a few days late, that way we can take advantage of all the sales!

I had to work on some freelance website stuff, but after I finished we watched a movie together. Side note: John has been in this weird habit lately of going to bed early, and waking up early! When I say early, I mean early. Like he wakes up at five A.M, and wants to go to bed at like 8:30 p.m. It's insane!

I designed a card to give him a while ago, but I hadn't gotten around to printing it. Today, I did, and it turned out well:

The flowers John got for me. :]

The card quotes one of my favorite Mumford & Sons songs: Sigh no more.

Love, it will not betray you
dismay or enslave you,
it will set you free
to be more like the man [or woman]
you were made to be.

There is a design,
an alignment, a cry
to see the beauty of love
as it was made to be.

I believe that love is a very powerful thing. The love that John and I have for each other does not tie us down. The love that I feel from him sets me free. It gives me confidence and motivation to be a better person. I think that is what love is all about. It's a beautiful thing that sets us free to become more beautiful people. And I feel lucky to have found it, especially at such a young age. Jaunito truly is the best husband a girl could ask for!

I love John. <3
