M Loves M Valentine's Day shoot @marmar
When I stumbled upon this love wall a few months ago I knew Matthew and I had to shoot here for Valentine’s Day! When I was younger I remember dreaming about my forever Valentine. Looking forward to the day where I’d have a date on every February 14th. I dreamt of the fancy dinners we’d go to, the presents we’d give each other, and the perfect and happy life we’d have. Now that I’m older, and obviously wiser, I’ve experienced holidays spent apart, casual date nights at home, forgoing presents for a trip, and the realness of marriage and life spent together. It’s not always perfect and happy but it shouldn’t be. I love that I do have that forever Valentine though. Someone that loves me for who I am. Who has been there through the best of times and some of the worst. The person that knows a hug and a kiss is sometimes all I need to totally make me feel better. No matter what we’re doing, or where we are, we are together and connected. I feel so blessed to have someone like Matthew in my life and I hope you all are with {or on your way} to your forever Valentine too!

I have a special Saturday post going up tomorrow about long distance relationships that I hope you’ll come back and read. Matthew and I were in a long distance relationship while we were dating and two of my best friends are currently going through them now.  I’m so excited to share their stories with you!
