i love love. i also love valentine’s day. i know some people think it’s a stupid holiday forced upon us by hallmark and 1-800-flowers, but i totally dig the idea of setting aside a day to celebrate romance. and this past saturday could not have been more glorious. from the time spent with matt and isaiah to the 65 degree sunny day in mid-february, it was just perfect. we began with gifts. beers, books, cigars, chocolate and panties were exchanged and cards written. matt and i went on a lover’s jog around town then ate lunch at a local spot, outside on the patio. seriously, the day was so beautiful. we hung out on the deck to soak up more sun and sip cocktails and eat raspberry chocolate because why the hell not?
isaiah had the coolest valentine’s in his class and brought home loads of candy. apparently, valentine’s day has become just as lucrative as halloween. candy for dayyyysssssssss. and he got a romantic meatball pizza for dinner, all to himself. because why the hell not?
for our romantic stay-at-home dinner we made tapas and drank champagne, because why the hell not?
i love valentine’s day.
