Valentine's Day may get a bad rap for its "cheesy" reputation; however, it is a wonderful opportunity to hit the pause button and take a moment to share your love and appreciation for family, friends, and significant others. 

I love putting together little gifts for my girlfriends just to remind them how much I value our friendship and to show how proud I am of all their amazing accomplishments. I enjoy getting little sweet treats for my family members because we all really love our dessert! I also love getting a card and enjoying a nice dinner together with Ben on Valentine's Day. We typically keep it pretty casual but it is a nice reminder to be thankful and appreciative of one another. 

In an effort to truly keep it short and sweet, Ben and I wanted to share our top 10 favorite things we love about each other. We've known each other for 10 years (dated for 7) so it is only fitting we share our top ten! :)
