Will You Be My Valentine?

Valentine's Day.

Some years I surprise my hubby like the year I sent him on a scavenger hunt with the final destination a weekend getaway in a secluded cabin on the lake.  Other years he surprises me like last year when he whisked me away for the night with a trip to the art museum.

Other years we keep it simple.  Like with a steak dinner once the kids are in bed.  Or like this year.

I came home for lunch (after a very long week of parent/teacher conferences) for a lunch date.  A lunch date with the hubby and this cheese stuffed Chicago pizza (flown in from Chicago).  He already had it cooking so we could just eat and chat before I headed back to school for my class Valentine party.

(The picture shows it pre-cooked, that is a packet of extra sauce on top)

I have learned over the years that we just have to meet Valentine's Day where we are.  Some years we can get away. Other years (like this one) we just have to monitor and adjust.

What is important is not what we do or where we go.

Just that we are together.

That we remember our love for one another.

That we are true Valentines.

For life.

Hope your day was special too!
