Andy and I have decided to skip Valentine supper at a restaurant this year. It's crowded and cliche, and we don't need it this year. We've decided to go out for lunch at a cafe near our house, one that we have been meaning to try out for some time. We'll go together for haircuts in the afternoon (very romantic!) then stay home Valentine's night - maybe get a dvd and curl up with a glass of wine.
We don't exchange gifts either, but we do give each other Valentine cards. I have also bought some little treats for Andy and for the kids. It's nice to get something sweet on Valentine's Day.
I don't know what the kids have planned. I guess I'll find out when the day comes, nothing that I know of yet. I think Alex will be working that evening.
Maybe I will bake some cookies. Other than that, life is already sweet, so I will just try to relax and appreciate it. The next day is a busy one - church, Shoreline Writers, then Thundering Word in the evening.
question: will you do something special for Valentine's Day?
mompoet - looking forward to simplicity and staying close to home
