Chris and I don’t usually tend to do much for Valentine’s Day. We don’t see the point of going out for dinner – why spend so much money on a meal in a crowded restaurant? And it’s such a “Hallmark Holiday”. That being said, I kind of secretly (not-so-secretly anymore) love Valentine’s Day and would love to be sent flowers or chocolates, or both.
Anyhow, I had a card for Chris this morning and cooked a nice brunch since he was off work today. We thought about going skating, but ended up scratching that idea – Canal conditions didn’t seem too great. Instead we put Nathan in his stroller and went for a walk. There was nothing particularly special about our walk – we stopped in at the grocery and video stores – but it was nice just to get out together and be moving and talk. It also had the added bonus of putting Nathan to sleep so he had a great nap this afternoon.
Then we came home and Chris prepared a yummy steak dinner.
It was a simple Valentine’s Day, but I’m grateful for it, especially for getting out for a good long walk. It gave us time to just appreciate each other’s company.
