Who posts a Valentine’s Day recap five days after the fact?
I do. That’s who.
It’s been kind of a crazy week. Actually, scratch that. I feel like this has been the craziest winter in the history of ever. What started as a benign storm early in the season has turned into the world’s worst snowfall of suck. It won’t stop. And it’s created frayed nerves, feelings of hopelessness, and even a few accidents. Walking around town the past few days has made me realize that the world outside my doorstep is one big icy and slippery obstacle course. Just yesterday, Bryan’s poor poppa was attacked by a falling icicle and ended up with a very bad corneal abrasion.
If you reside in the area, please do be careful, my loves.
But back to the day of love…
The day itself kind of came and went without much fanfare. Both Bryan and I had to work and it seemed to be one of those Fridays were nothing felt accomplished, even long after the day had ended.
One of my neighbors kindly invited us along with a few others from the vicinity for a night of dinner and karaoke. When I told her I felt funny coming alone since Bryan had to work late, she said “it’s not about that. It’ll be a nice, stress-free night with new friends.” Of course I couldn’t say no to an invite so sweet and I love that I have such thoughtful friends in the area. And dinner was delicious (her hubby even cooked up some fish when I mentioned that I don’t eat meat).
Bryan told me that morning that as part of a Valentine’s Day/early birthday gift he would like to whisk me away to Nashville, a city we’ve both discussed visiting on several occasions. I was beyond elated and we spent the weekend booking our flight and room. If anyone has any recommendations in the Nashville area, please pass them along!
Did you celebrate Valentine’s Day this year? What did you do?
