you've got my heart on a string.


Sunday, February 12th
is when I treated my Valentine to a little love.
I can't remember the last time Georgia weather was this cold.
We've barely had winter this year and the day I planned a small fishing trip with a picnic
outside is the day we almost got frost bite. Not really but maybe.

I saw this website that has this print out that said
 You've got my heart on a string
and it immediately brought me to the thought of taking Aaron fishing  just behind our house on the family property. Once my head starting gambling up ideas I began to dig a little deeper into this whole Valentine idea.

Being we had kickball practice at 1:00pm that day I didn't really know how to
come about this. Before? After? Holy crap it's cold.

I had to run to the store to pick up one more thing so this was my shot.
I had everything packed already and hid in the guest bathroom shower where he would
not find it. I hurried to the store, set up everything and went back for Aaron.
I was already freezing. I told him to bundle up. It was KILLING him to not know what was about to happen. Being we live seconds from the ponds I figured I should blindfold him...

so I did.

and brought him here...

... what a surprise.

Did I mention it was really cold?
Which is why we decided not to act on the fishing idea.
I didn't think to understand that fish do not like to come up to the water
at a low temperature. Therefore we just had a picnic.

Aaron loves peanut butter and jelly sandwichs & when I ran into these mugs
I knew I had to incorporate them into the day. Which is where the picnic came from.
He also L.O.V.E.S chocolate chip cookies and milk. Matter of fact, he has three cookies with milk almost every night before we go to bed.

 I made him chocolate chip cookies and sealed two mason jars tight
filled with cookies.

The second photo is what Aaron is pulling out of another mason jar here...

and here is where
{You have my heart on a string} came in.
I tied all the reasons why I loved him or what I loved about him
to fishing line along with these red hearts.

I won't lie.
Eating our sandwiches in the cold was pretty quiet.
Until we both just started dying laughing because we both really wanted to
go inside and be warm ...
but he wouldn't say it and neither would I.
So we basically tried to have a good time while we were there.

The End!
We packed up fast and defrosted our bodies.

P.S - did anyone notice my husbands lips outside of the candy lips?
hilarious, right?


So... Who is your sweetie this year?

Tonight, we plan on dining out in the city of Savannah,
with a glass on wine.. {or 2. or 3} & enjoying another Valentines Day together.
