My Valentine’s Day Playlist! #Troop8x #HTC8X

      Valentine's Day is an extremely romantic time for my husband and I because we met on Valentine's day weekend 15 years ago.  He was stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina at the time and he surprised me by showing up on my parents' doorstep unexpectedly with roses.     Unfortunately, social media and technology was not as advanced back then as it is now so I don't have photos and posts to remember those first blissful moments.  However, one thing that is timeless and has always been around is music.  There are many songs that my husband and I have shared over the years that have become part of our Valentine's Day playlist.     As we near the 15th anniversary of the day we met on February 12th, I would like to share this playlist with all of you to bring a little romance into your life that you can share with that special someone.  So, without further ado, here is the Tough Cookie Mommy Valentine's Day Playlist:           As you can … [Read more...]
