I guess it was about four years ago when the tradition started. My boyfriend and I wanted to go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day and every restaurant we went to had lines out the door and a jam packed parking lot. We drove around and around and it was the same everywhere. I could sense the frustration coming over him. We passed a casual sandwich place that was pretty empty and I said, let’s eat there. The look of relief that came over his face is the best Valentine’s Day gift I have ever gotten to this day. We went and had a quiet simple meal and enjoyed each other’s company and the stress was forgotten.
So now, our tradition is to keep it low key, stress free and enjoy some time and a simple meal together. Tonight was just as wonderful as that first night. Love you babe.
