Dear February,

I wonder if you ever get tired of being called ‘the month of love’. Do you kinda want to be known for more than just chalky conversation hearts and a little man-baby called cupid? I mean, look at you. You’re the shortest month, but full of all kinds of goodness like superbowl sunday and half of our family’s birthdays and a gloriously long presidents day weekend. You produce crazy weather – obnoxious amounts of snow mixed in with beautifully clear and sunny days, which make our skiing adventures extra special.

You have your downsides, no doubt. You’re still winter and by now we’re all pretty ready for that to be over. Colds and flu bugs seem to hang around you and make their way into our homes.  The whole valentine’s day rose prices are a little out of control.

But still, you are good. Fun. Busy.

And we love you.

Until next year …

Notable moments: seahawks superbowl win, No.1’s 10th birthday, Ryan’s birthday, sledding & skiing, our 15 year anniversary, Audrey’s birthday and lots of creating.

    February is my most dreaded month of the year. The fact that it’s the shortest and has Valentine’s day is it’s only saving grace for me. I’m pretty sure every March 1st I sigh a sigh of relief. Here in Ontario it’s just too cold and bleak. Maybe one day I’ll learn to like. I’m glad you enjoyed it though! Yeesh sorry for being so pessimistic. :)
