Valentine's Day has always been a special day for Joey and Rory Feek.
In his newest blog post, Rory revealed that his first date ever with his now-ailing wife took place back in 2002 on Valentine's Day when he attended a work event with his country-singing love. Two months later the pair were engaged.
But things will be celebrated differently this year as Joey battles terminal cancer under hospice care.
With February 14 just days away, the Grammy Awards on Monday, and their daughter Indiana turning two on Wednesday — there is a lot going on in the Feek household.
"What I really want to do on this, our 14th Valentine's together, is share a romantic candle-lit dinner with my bride: grill out rib-eyes on the campfire back home, pour two glasses of red wine and sit across from her at our kitchen table – just like we've done on more than one special occasion. But those things aren't able to happen this year. Neither Joey, nor I, have laid eyes on our farmhouse back in Tennessee since the middle of October. On top of that, Joey's illness hasn't allowed her to be able to eat much of anything for some time now and she sleeps most of the days and nights away."
Instead he offered how the family will spending the holiday:
"So my hope this year instead is to hold her hand and take her on a ‘virtual' walk down memory lane together… with pictures and videos on my laptop. I want to take her back to where our lives first began together, and relive this beautiful journey that God has taken us on… from that first song she heard me sing at the Bluebird cafe, to the last one we sang together as we stood on stage and took our final bow… to the songs that she will leave behind here on earth and the ones she will soon sing for eternity to our sweet Lord in that heavenly choir up yonder. A trip down memory lane together… That, and I'm hoping for a few soft kisses. The passion for each other that Joey and I once had has been replaced by the sweetest, gentlest kisses. I live for those kisses. They are enough."
Wow. All the feels!!

Talk about a bonding experience!
In case you aren't familiar with LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian's infamous affair, let's break it down for you. The Sunset Beach star was once married to Brandi Glanville during the same time the country crooner was lawfully wedded to Dean Sheremet.
Long story short, the singer and the actor cheated on their loves with each other. And now, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum and the 35-year-old are remembering the night they first learned about the affair.
The blonde beauty recently had the musician's ex on her podcast, and on Friday she teased his upcoming episode.
In the clip, the scorned spouses open up about that monumental moment. The 42-year-old recalled the night all four of them were at a bar in Canada, and that's when they realized something was going on between the Northern Lights costars.
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Kevin Randleman died on Thursday at 44.
According to reports, the MMA fighter was hospitalized with pneumonia and later passed away from heart failure.
Born in Ohio, Randleman was an early fixture of ultimate fighting and mixed martial arts, debuting in the UFC in 1999 — and three fights into his career was the heavyweight champion in the world!
Nicknamed "The Monster", the athlete later spent four years in Japan, where he became a fixture in PRIDE Fighting Championships.
After fading from the spotlight in the mid-2000s, he got involved with the Tapout Training Program.
Randleman attended the 8th annual Fighters Only World Mixed Martial Arts Awards in Las Vegas — where he had been living — on February 5, and reportedly looked like he was in good health.
The athlete is survived by his wife and three children. Our hearts go out to his friends and family during this devastating time.
