i told ben i'd take care of our activities for valentine's day.
coming from a girl who LOVES surprises, i think i was maybe a little more excited than he was, but i know that he couldn't wait either.
when he got to my apartment, there was a note waiting for him on my front door.
it was a sweet little scavenger hunt!
i sent him around campus to all of the places that were important to us, with a little love note left at each place.
then after traipsing around in the cold for a while, he ended up back at my place, instructed to knock on my bedroom door.
when i told him he could come in, this is what he saw:
i had built a fort!
we always talked about making one of these, so i decided why not.
and i made a little "be mine" banner and hung that up in there too.
when he came in, i greeted him with a kiss and some homemade quesadillas.
we spent the night snuggled up, watching one of his favorite movies and talking about the love notes we'd written each other.
it was our only valentine's day spent together as engaged people and it was just perfect.
