I am pretty sure this year was my favorite Valentines yet. Nothing really out of the ordinary happened. I was just feeling so much LOVE for my little bear and Mr. B. I was also feeling extra grateful that I was no longer single, sulking in my singledom on such a day as Valentines. No offense to all my single friends! Your day will come. Anyway.... Brian and I aren't big fans of crowds so we planned early on to celebrate Valentines the day after. And let me just tell you it was well worth it. Not only do crowds give us a slight amount of anxiety buuuut I am somewhat of a nosey people watcher and the fewer people there are to snoop on, the better the conversation between Brian and I. So since we weren't going out on Valentines, we offered to watch our friends little ones. Though we were sure to still keep it festive, so I put together a little Valentines dinner for us and our good friends Oak and Scott. The dinner was good and the company was even better so we were content.
For our official Valentines celebration, it was my year to plan. Seeing that it was my first, I realized it's a lot harder to be original than one would imagine. I think as a woman (maybe I'm wrong) we have these dreams in our minds of just how amazing and romantic each valentines is going to be and well....thats just not the case. Though they are great, they just aren't quite the dreams of grandeur I had a few years ago. So for our Valentines day we exchanged gifts (I had a puzzle made out of one of our wedding photos and it went with this card that showed two puzzle pieces and underneath read " The Perfect fit". I am quite proud), had a delicious meal at Ruth's Chris, and finished off the night with indoor Go Kart racing. I would have to say that Go Kart racing was the high light of the night. It was more fun than anything we have done in a long time, but we both got a little queasy on the drive home. So queasy that we had to pull over on our way home... it made for a real good laugh. Over all, the night was a success and it was so delightful to finally get some quality valentine time together. I can't wait until next year!
