Happy Monday

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a great weekend. Jus & I spent all day Saturday registering and then all day Sunday cleaning the house. Very exciting, no?
In honor of Valentine's Day all of my posts this week will deal with love. I know there are some people that argue that Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday and shouldn't be celebrated with loads of chocolate, flowers and diamonds, but I really like Valentine's day.
I love spending a day (and this year a week) just celebrating the people I love.
When I was single this love focused on my family, I'm incredibly blessed to have parents and a sister that are loving and supportive. The love of my family and friends is enough for me to jump up and down screaming for joy.
Once Jus got added to the mix I started loving Valentine's Day even more. I know I've gushed on and on about how wonderful Jus is but he is awesome. All weekend I found myself looking at him and thinking "wow, I am so lucky to have you, you understand me." Planning our wedding has intensified this feeling because I keep remembering that our relationship isn't fleeting but that we will genuinely be together forever.
So anyways, this week is all about love, I'm lucky enough to have some wonderful bloggers who are willing to participate in a guest blog series* I'm featuring this week. I've sent them all questions about their relationships and love in general, I've also convinced my mom & Jus to play along and so far I've loved reading through the responses (I've also got to say I chose some smokin' hot couples). With every set of responses I've been tearing up** and getting so much wisdom about relationships. I hope you enjoy reading through them as much as I do. I'll be posting them at 10 am and 3 pm every day this week.
The Baked Good of the Month Club recipe is also Valentine's related, I'll do a love related roundup Thursday, and I'll try to keep my 100 photos love related.
Have a great rest of your day, I love you!

*If you'd like to participate email me and I'll be sure to get the questions to you.
**My doctor has me on two types of birth control lately (longer story than you ever need to hear) and I've been getting teary at the Olympics commercials so I think I might be just overly emotional, but these stories are really great.
