Tomorrow morning, my husband will board a plane headed far, far away. He is going to Adu Dhabi for a 2-Week Leadership Seminar. (Yes, that's right- he's going all Sex and the City 2 on me!

We are not huge celebrators of this holiday as it is, but it also happens to be a special day for us- something Jason refers to as our "Valeversary". (He would totally kill me if he knew I just gave that secret away...please don't tell!) So, even though our wedding anniversary is in April, we still always make mention of this day because it is the day we officially started dating, back in 2006. *awww*
I have been working through some ideas of how to send a little love to him/with him for his trip- especially because I know he is not looking forward to being away from Emilia and I for that long. I have been pinning an idea here and there, but nothing I was overly excited about. Then it hit me! This morning I remembered that Picnik.com is shutting down in April (isn't that horribly sad!?) and that even their premium stuff was free until then. Soo, I searched through my hard drive(s) for a handful of my favorite photos- some of just Emilia, some of Jason and Emilia, I think I even snuck into one or two. So, I took these photos and added text to them in picnik. I went with an "I love you because.." theme. It seemed fitting for a Vday gift. Don't you agree? (O: I would love to share them all with you, but there are about 20 total...so here are a couple of my favorites:
Are you doing anything fun/surprise/corny for a loved one this season?
