There were goodbyes (Tim and Fran headed back to Nauvoo) and hellos (my mom got here later that night), lots of tears, some sleepy smiles and lots and lots of studying (since Ben had a huge test the next day).
After Ben left for class he texted me and asked if I was sleeping - of course I wasn't because we have a little boy who does not like sleeping when I'm sleepy. After responding, Ben texted again, "You should go sleep on your pillow!"
I thought that sounded a little suspicious so I went and checked my pillow and this is what I found ...
The note was probably my favorite part. I definitely married a romantic:
In case you can't read it, it says:
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
I got you the gross cookies you like so they can be all yours. J/K. I will still eat them!
Love is in the air here in Seattle.
