valentine's day

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?

I am hosting a Valentine's Dance Party at Glen Pine Pavilion...so far 80+ have purchased tickets for a night of dancing and socializing. I am presenting an inexpensive date...I took a quick glance at the guest list...early twenties to seventies. For $20 there will be an amazing hostess, my awesome instructor named Candace, appetizers, munchies, great music and an open bar...I am sellig tickets at the door too so everyone is welcome. So that is how I am spending my Valentine's Day...Darcy will come and volunteer to be my dishwasher or assist at the bar.

That is what I call original love on Valentine's Day. Life is already sweet... Good for you!

On Valentine's, Wifey and I will be stuck at home but enjoying ourselves together making more creative crafts for the upcoming CARE & SHARE DAY for Sonny's school's fund-raising fair.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds very nice and practical. I love that you already realize you have a sweet life. I know you were amazing and a show stopper. Can't wait to see pictures.
