Notice anything different about my bunch of roses?
What do you think…they’re looking a little dry right?? Well they should, because they are exactly one year old today. Jason got me some roses last Valentine’s Day, which was our first one together as husband and wife. This entire time I have not had to heart to part with them. The water dried out and they continued to look beautiful…and so I kept them. And here they are, on my nightstand right by my head, providing me with wonderful memories every day I wake up and see them.
V-Day is definitely different when you’re married. But in a good way. We decided not to even bother with the cards and champagne and other hooplah…we’ve already done that 5 years in a row! It’s just a fun time to celebrate love! Speaking of love, we had a great dinner out together on Sunday at the Williamsburg Winery. They were offering a special holiday menu and the food was seriously a revelation. Such a great night.
We went to the same place for Valentine’s Day dinner last year! And hilariously, we have the exact same picture of us in that same lobby last year:
I want to go back next year just to take that same picture again.
We both had classes today so we didn’t really go all out. But being the amazing guy that he is, Jason surprised me with a lovely breakfast that was appropriately themed.
Those pancakes were so delicious! After classes and an awesome Zumba session (for me at least, I don’t think Jason would be down with doing Zumba ), we came back home to our fancy celebratory dinner.
I love meals where I don’t have to cook! Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook (clearly) but sometimes after a full day I just don’t want to. We randomly got a coupon for a free pizza so we cashed in tonight! It was delicious. The salad I made us wasn’t too bad either.
And for dessert, we’re heating up the last one of these babies:
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day/Love Day/Chocolate Day doing whatever the heck it is that makes you feel the love.
Thanks for reading!
