Valentine's Day has come and gone...but I thought that I would let you know how mine went! I spent the day at work (boo) and came home to find flowers, cards, candy, and even presents from my parents. My brother and I were definitely spoiled! It was definitely a nice thing to come home to.
After that, I had to do some writing work - and then get things ready for my boyfriends arrival. He worked until 9ish, so I had a bit of time to get dinner prepared. It wasn't easy (I am horrible at cooking!) but I made mini pizzas and oatmeal raisin cookies. In between, I decorated the upstairs with heart shaped cut-outs, fake candles, stuffed things, and movies for the night. In the end, it looked pretty good, I think.
He surprised me with a hand made card and rose along with some candy hearts. Yum! It was really lovely. We ate, watched movies, and cuddled up on the couch. That is my idea of a romantic Valentine's Day! I totally forgot to take pictures throughout most of the day, but here are the ones I did manage to snag:
So, that is how I spent my Valentine's Day this year. It was definitely a nice break from real life!
What did you do for Valentine's Day?
