The holiday of love is upon us and I'm feeling particulary lovey dovey this year. This newylwed has been listening to love songs non-stop and munching on conversation hearts like they're going out of style (well, technically they are). This will be Scott and I's 8th Valentine's Day together (!!!), and while we have no specific plans as of now, I know the day will be incredibly special. On our first Valentine's Day together Scott gave me a bouquet of sunflowers and took silly self-timer photos with me in his old yard. By then, we had been together for four months and were madly in love with each other. We knew we had something special, and now, more than ever, it's feel so great to look back on those moments and photos to see how far we've come. From a couple of teenagers in love, to a newlywed couple. Life sure is sweet!
To balance out life post-wedding and pre-love day (ya know, the one with all of the sweets and treats), I've been running a few times a week at a local outdoor track. I've never been much of a runner, let alone very athletic, but lately I've sure been trying to build up my edurance up and get comfortable with running a few miles every week. For the most part, I've been running in two mile intervals. Some days it's a little less, some days I feel like I can handle a little more. With an office job that leaves me in my seat for eight'ish hours a day, it sure feels good to get out in the fresh air, crank up the music, and just run. I've been using the RunKeeper app to track my daily runs. If anyone is on RunKepper (dowload it!), be sure and add me as a friend.

Ok, I'm off to pick up some love day goodies (See's candies are my favorite!) with my mom, whip up some dinner, and get a little run in! What are you up to this evening? Have any V-day plans? What's your favorite love song?
