My thoughts, though -- what's so wrong with a holiday that makes you reflect a bit on the love you get and the love you give? It's never wrong to reflect on that. Because we could all use a boost now and then.
And if you don't want it to be a "Hallmark Holiday" then don't buy a Hallmark card! Make one yourself out of construction paper and highlighters. There. You've shown them!
(And for the record, my card shop of choice was Treat.com ... ohmahworrrd they have such a fun selection!)
We sat at the dining room table for dinner (which is an anomaly -- you can usually find us in front of the television, no judging pretty please!)
I had rose petals on the table as well as the roses Ian gave me and a few other fun decor pieces.
For dinner we had filet, lobster tails, and sauteed spinach. We didn't do gifts this year, just cards, which I think is the best part anyway!
Dessert was a mini-version of a salted caramel brownie which, um, left a bit to be desired. #bakingfail
Good thing Ian had snuck some chocolate-covered strawberries in the fridge for us! We tossed the brownie and just had the strawberries.
What about you, did you get into celebrating Valentines Day this year, or do you gloss over it?
