We had the best Valentine’s Day this year (I vote it should officially be changed so that it’s always on a Saturday every year)! We’ve been so busy with Radiant lately that we’ve kind of let holidays just slide by. We’re wanting to fix that soon but we still weren’t ready to stress and plan a huge V-day. So it wasn’t that we did anything super spectacular. It was just that we had a great time hanging out together and relaxing.
We decided to start the day by making a fancy breakfast (which we never do because we both have strange cooking complexes and usually eat like college students). So we made delish lemon-blueberry scones with some avacado/bacon scrambled eggs and some fruit/honey/granola concotion. We just listened to records and enjoyed our beautiful meal with a few hot pink candles lit on our table. Oh yeah and my cousin surprised us with some Kona coffee when he came back from Hawaii so instead of buying individual Valentine’s Day gifts, we decided to just get ourselves a nice coffee maker so we could really savor the Kona (the one we registered for when we got married doesn’t even pour let alone make good coffee). So our coffee extraordinare was the perfect finishing touch… especially since I my favorite mug is a Valentine’s Day one. I was happy.
After that we handed out Valentine’s Day Candy Grams to people who sent them to their family and neighbors in the complex. If you’re confused about why we did this…. we work for an organization that allows us to plan community activities in our apartment complex in exchange for free rent! So we put cute little cards in the front office for people to personalize and then we attached bags of candy and hand-delivered them around to everyone. My favorite was one sent from one tiny child to another that said (written by mom) “I haven’t seen you at the park lately, happy Valentine’s Day!” complete with a picture of who knows what on the back. It was so cute. The ones from parents to child were really sweet too. It was really nice to see people caring about one another and planning a special surprise for their loved ones. It made for a really nice touch for our Valentine’s Day.
Those were the highlights for us, we also split up for awhile to buy each other cheesy Valentine’s memorobilia (so lame that we were too busy to buy each other presents!!) and went to see a flick. So it wasn’t a good day because of what we did necessarily, but it was just such a fun, chill day. It gets so easy for us to begin to treat each other as roomates or business partners, this day kind of reminded us that we are best friends and that we really like hanging out together!
