One thing my husband and I are guilty of: not celebrating Valentine’s Day. To us, its just been another day. We’ll buy the kids a little something. And for each other, we might splurge on a card. But that’s about as far as the gift giving will go. Restaurants are always packed, so we’ll just stay home.
But the days leading up to this V-day, I was feeling a little down. Maybe it was the cheesy “Every kiss begins with Kay” or “He went to Jared?!?” jewelry commercials on TV. Not that I was jewelry jealous. But, just because we’ve gotten into the habit of not doing anything for each other.
So last-minute I decided to have a special Valentines dinner at home. The kids and I whipped up a heart-shaped pizza. We got out a table cloth and candles, and opened the wine and Sprite. When Daddy got home, we had a great dinner that was full of laughs.
After the kids went to bed, we watched our favorite TV show, Lost. And all was good. So Valentine’s Day ended on a great note. No expensive jewelry, no roses, or fancy dinners. Just a lot of love.
How about you? How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
