Our fourteen days of Secret Service was such a hit. The masses have asked to do it again.
Keeping secrets was hard. Everyone started trying to guess. We had to get crafty by soliciting help in ghost writing notes and assisting in tasks so as not to get caught.
Eliza kept her note collection on the side of the fridge and boy, her Secret Agent was vigilant and amazing.
Early this morning we had the great reveal over a Valentine breakfast. We all guessed who had our names before the telling. Most everyone had it wrong and the surprise was fun.
As was the presentation of the little Valentine gifts they'd purchased for each other.
The perfect start to a perfect day celebrating the love within our family.
We've really enjoyed this month and there's so much more to write about leading up to this day. However, after getting these guys off to school and leaving notes of love with treats on the counter for their return home, my Valentine and I took a seven-ish hour road trip to Utah for the weekend.
I'm sure these guys are having fun tonight with our good friend who is staying with them.
And I'm certain Newel loved every minute of the drive listening to my constant yammering conversation over all things under the sun.
But I know ... among so many other things making this day pretty darn special ... I mostly enjoyed our dinner tonight at one of our first date restaurants in our little college town as we relived memory upon memory of the road to where we are now.
A great way to end a great day.
I hope you and yours had a wonderful Valentine's Day.
