Happy (belated!) Valentines Day!! Here’s a fun fact: Did you know St. Valentine is buried in Dublin, Ireland?! Well…now you do!!
I hope you all had a lovely day spending time with loved ones or taking the time to appreciate your fabulous self and how totally awesome you are!
This year is the first Valentine’s Day as a married couple for me and Toblerone and just like all the years before, we don’t buy in to all the fancy shmancy stuff but we still recognize how much we love each other with the little things. This year I made “Honey Coupons” and tied each to a balloon.
The balloon gave a clue where to find the next balloon and coupon! 😉 I thought it would be fun to send him on a goose chase! And of course…I was at the end with the last coupon 🙂
Then we had a nice dinner together. Candles and candy hearts decorated the table and we had a tomato, basil, and mozzarella heart salad. Then gyros with tzaziki with homemade flour tortillas. For dessert I made a filled pastry. Kinda like a poptart but with fresh berries, honey, and cream cheese. Was super yummy!!!
I got a sweet card, my favorite tea (earl grey), and a garden magazine! Totally love it!
So here we are snuggling on the couch…Harley in the middle of course! We’re a happy family and happy to have a day that we get the excuse to spoil each other a little more than usual 🙂 However usually, I make Tobi’s breakfast and lunch with a love note every day, and he makes sure we have a roof over our head and my health insurance is paid. Oh, The things you do for love! And when I was young, my mom always gave us pink milk and something with spaghetti sauce to keep within the colored theme. And of course we would have little heart candies or a special prize at the dinner table. Traditions are important, but saying I love you in the littlest way is the greatest!
What do you do for you loved ones? Did you do something unique and special this year? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time, Readers!!!!! Xoxoxoxoxo
