Hello germs.. that is what I fear these days with my kiddo...

Wish i can say this about you.

This is the man who has loved me since I was ???, who has provided for our family, who has helped me raise awesome adult(s), and who I can't wait to spend the next half century with, because he has forgiven me when I was wrong, he has laughed with me when I was giddy, he has encouraged me when I was scared, and he has comforted me when I was sad and I love him very much.

"My forever valentine, XXX ❤️ Feel like the luckiest girl in the world that he's my husband and father to our beautiful kiddos. I love you more today than the day I said I do. He loves me whether I'm at my best or worst, wakes up to put out kids back to bed even when he is sleep deprived himself, climbs roofs and trees to keep our house looking good, believes in me even when I doubt myself and loves us unconditionally. Can't imagine building my life with anyone else but you. (I'm not one to profess my love publicly but decided that I will do it today so everyone knows how awesome you are!)" - Wish I have a Valentine.
