Oh Cupid...

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Today was a good V-Day. I brought dark chocolate cupcakes into work and dressed a bit nicer than I usually do. It is a holiday after all. I love Valentine's Day although I think it is a bit over glorified.

I am so lucky to be married to my husband. Not only does he put up with my whining, sacrasm and smart ass talk, he sends me roses, takes me out to a nice dinner and writes me cute stuff in a card. I know some people have crazy Valentine's Days full of exotic weekends, loads of jewelry and everything else. But that is not who we are. We are simple. We wind up on the couch watching tv and heading to bed. I am good with that, in fact that is what I choose to do.

Sometimes people think we don't do much, they are right, we don't. We find the joy out of the simple things in life. We work hard and rest hard. I don't think there is anything wrong with that. As long as you are happy, which we are.

I hope everyone else spends Valentine's Day just the way they like to and not feel pressured to go above and beyond what they were planning on doing or could afford.

My bottom line: Valentine's Day is just another day, feel free to spend it the way you want to. I just prefer to spend it curled up on the couch munching on chocolate.

Yay for simple, that's the way we do it too. Except for the part where Josh got me a necklace but we do express our love everyday and I think that is so important. Glad you had a good V-day!

We are the same way - we keep everything simple. We just ordered a pizza, snuggled with our babies, and went to bed early.
