Valentine’s Day is this Sunday and I don’t usually make a big deal of it, but it is nice those years when you can spend it with that special someone. I think the upcoming holiday makes me feel grateful for those in my life that are very loved, and it’s fun to surprise people with sweet little gifts. My plan this weekend is to spend the day outside gardening or hiking, and then make a delicious meal together (I’m thinking flank steak, asparagus and sweet potatoes), share a bottle of wine and watch something we both enjoy on t.v while cuddling… possibly with some candles and dark chocolate! Keeping it simple is key, and with Valentine’s day falling on a Sunday it makes it much easier to stay in. Valentine’s Day for me also marks that we are half-way though February, the worst month of the year in my opinion, and that much closer to spring and summer! I have put together a 2016 calendar for my beau using pictures we’ve taken throughout the last year (thanks Walgreens!), as well as finding an adorable Eric Carle book on love.
