Alex knows me so well! He has been saying for weeks that he is making me something for valentines day. I thought I was getting something from wood like a book shelf or something. Or maybe new can lights in the kitchen (he has been working on that too). So this morning I was surprised to see a little bad with little boxes in it. At first I thought maybe he lied to me and actually bought something instead of making something.
When I opened the boxes I was pleasantly surprised to see beautiful earrings and a necklace. I was shocked I even asked him multiple times if he actually made them!
He then told me what they mean and why he picked to make them for me. Here is the cute, romantic, and sweet part. The pendants are called birds nests. He said they are for moms to represent the children. Since I've been waiting to have a child in our home for a few years now that was enough to being on the water works. Then he said, there are three beeds to represent our three sons (the two we lost and our beautiful Daren)! I cried and couldn't imagine how much thought and love went into this gift!
BEST VALENTINES DAY EVER!
