Oh, how times have changed. In high school and college, v-day was a big deal for us. I felt like we somehow had to "prove" our love with lots of gifts and spending lots of money. Looking back, that's pretty stinkin dumb. I mean, really? It should just be about spending quality time with the one you love.

This year, we didn't go out for a fancy dinner. We didn't get presents for each other. We didn't even get cards! Instead, I made us a nice big dinner and got all dressed up. (even put the baby in a "tie") We put the baby to bed early. We lit candles. We drank some prosecco, ok, a lot of prosecco. We laughed and talked about how much more love we have in our lives this year than any other year presents required. And in my book, it doesn't get much sweeter than that. It was, without question, the best Valentine's Day ever.

We decided several years ago to stop going out to dinner for Valentines Day! It was the best decision. You can make a nice dinner at home, and it's cheaper and you ca be in the Pj's!;) glad you had a great Valentines Day!

Ahhh, great photos. We are the same way. 16 Valentines days together and we know it's far more important to show our love every day of the year and be faithful in our time together than to try to prove something on one day the world marks the day of love. Good post. :)
