Love is all you need!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In honor of this “Hallmark Holiday,” C & I will be spending the evening doing what we do every year – cooking a delicious dinner! It’s a tradition that we started the first year we were dating, kind of by accident. That first year, we were pretty broke, so instead of going out to a restaurant (who wants to mess with those crowds, anyways??), we just bought some yummy things from the grocery store and spent the evening in my apartment cooking & having fun. My roommate even left us alone for the night so that we could have some time to ourselves! It was pretty sweet, and so when V-Day rolled around the next year, we both agreed that we’d like to do the same thing. We’ve done it every year since, and even included both sets of parents last year since we were living at home – that was a special night for everyone. Now, on our fifth Valentine’s Day together, we have a bit more money than that first year, but couldn’t imagine doing anything else tonight. Yesterday, we went to Wegman’s and splurged on some really nice steaks and some frozen scallops, and we’re going to whip up a delicious Surf ‘n Turf dinner for two in our own home. There isn’t much chocolate happening in our house these days, since we’re both watching what we eat, but we did pick up a “tiramisu for two” to treat ourselves just a tiny bit. I can’t wait!
