My Mother-in-law and I haven't always gotten along. When Justin and I started dating she HATED me. He was her baby. They had gone through everything together. I was his first girlfriend and I took up all of his time. She was pretty mean to me and didn't really welcome me too well.

Fast forward 8 years and we are best friends. When Justin left for boot camp in late 2005 her and I got really close. I had Landon and she wanted to spend as much time with us as she could before we moved. Since then we have had a growing relationship. I could say that in the last 2 years we have gotten REALLY close. I talk to her every few days and it feels off if I don't.

Since she doesn't get to see us very often she likes to do nice things for us when she can. Today was one of those days. She sent us Valentines Day gifts! Amazing Ghirardelli chocolates! I got a HUGE basket full of all different types and Landon got a bear with chocolates attached to it.

I feel so very blessed to have her in my life. Our relationship started out rocky but now I couldn't imagine it being any stronger. We went from her hating me to thanking me often for what a good wife I am to her son.

Both of our gifts together!

Landon's teddy bear Cocoa!

My basket! It's huge! I have no idea if I'm going to be able to eat it all! lol.
