Love is all you need...

Given that today is Valentines Day, I think it's the perfect time to give thanks for all the love in your life.
I feel so lucky to have two wonderful men in my life, both who love me unconditionally.
My wonderful husband - who has told me he loves me every day for the last 7 years, 
and my beautiful baby boy - who breaks out into the most heart-warming smiles whenever he sees me.

Having a baby definitely changes a relationship. It adds all kinds of new stresses, but it also brings you closer. Much closer. I think we've grown so much stronger as a couple in the last few months because of it.

Oh and speaking of romantic love....

My husband and I went on our first "date" the other day since Little Z was born. 

I say "date" because it was just an hour long visit to Starbucks!

You see we are nervous new parents who mistakenly believe that the world will fall apart if we leave our baby alone with someone else for too long.

Still it was great to be just the two of us again... even just for an hour.
(And ironically, although we totally enjoyed our whip-heavy frappuccinos in a cry-free environment, we found ourselves talking about Zac most of the time.)

Baby steps : )

Happy Valentine's Day!
