Febuary 4th, the other Valentine's Day

 Despite reminding Dan that Valentine's Day is February 14th every year, he still managed to think that the 4th was the big day instead. So, he planned this whole extravagant day for the two of us a week early. No complaining here though! Two V-days!? I'm in. On Saturday, Dan surprised me in the morning with horseback riding. I was so excited I cried a little bit. I LOVE, love, love horses. Riding horses is seriously one of my very favorite things, and I wish I owned a horse so I could do it all the time. Dan, on the other hand, had never ridden a horse IN HIS LIFE. You're thinking, "but he's a Veterinarian, right?" True, and he can tell you all kinds of medical things about horses and how to treat them, but has never actually been on one. This little known fact makes his gift to me that much sweeter. I had an absolute blast and did manage to take a few pictures while on my horse, not an easy thing to do. Dan took one of me at the very end, but it's at a weird angle and I swear I look like I weigh 400lbs, so we're not showing that one.

hey there, good lookin'
That night, Dan made ME dinner while I sat on the couch and watched TV. It was excellent. I can't remember the last time anyone cooked for me, so it was the perfect gift, and the food was delicious. I just love that sweet man of mine.


  1. Actually, Dan rode a horsey when he was 3 or 4 years old. He just doesn't remember it. He did great -- didn't fall off or nothin'.

  2. Oh my goodness! Those horses were huge! How fun! You caught us on our best day of the week. I've been coughing my head off ever since pretty much, and Jeremy got some kind of terrible stomach bug last night. We're hoping he lives through the night... it might be dicey. So that's why I haven't said "hi" or anything...

  3. I'm SO JEALOUS! I too am an avid horse-riding lover. What a sweet man you have, you lucky lucky lady! :)
