Well folks, we are now into February with Valentine's Day just around the corner. Some of us love this holiday and others despise it. Whether married, dating, single or it's complicated, I'd like to hear some of your traditions on this day of love. I have been married for 4 1/2 years but I've been with him exclusively for almost 11 years! Yes you read that right, I was a baby when I met the greatest and smartest man alive. I had no idea at 21 years old that in a decade from then, I'd be married to my boyfriend, living in Austin (we met in San Diego and lived in LA for years), owning my dream house, owning three Weiner dogs whom I'm absolutley obsessed with, practicing real estate, planning monthly women's networking events and trying to start a family! Like whoa, life can be so crazy and unpredictable but incredibly beautiful with the timing of things.
Anyways, so I've never really been that into V-day, just because I get annoyed by the crowds, having to make reservations months in advance for the good places, spending a ton of money which is unnecessary, etc. I have always been happy to get a card and some beautiful flowers (yes I still expect flowers on this day EVERY year) and I like to make a nice yummy dinner at home for Chris and I. Then we usually do something fun that weekend like go on a little trip or out for a night on the town. This year I am so excited because we are going to see "Masters of Dance" put on by Ballet Austin! I grew up dancing, still take some classes here and there and am in love with anything dance all the time. I will let y'all know how the show is.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day whether it's spending time with your best girlfriends, having a romantic night in with the hubby, going out on the town for some drinks, or just staying home to soak in a nice bath. :) I'll be coming out with my top 5 restaurant picks for that special day soon!
Now that you know what we always do on this day, what are some of your Valentine's Day traditions? Do you get surprises? Do you ship the kids to grandma's and get crazy?? I want to know!
