Those of you who have been around here awhile know that Charlie and I are most definitely not big on celebrating Hallmark holidays. Christmas, birthdays, Mother’s & Father’s Day – you name it, we probably don’t celebrate it with anything more than a photo. (Because you KNOW I must have a photo!)
Valentine’s Day is no exception to this rule for us. He bought me a bouquet of red roses long ago — probably on our first or second anniversary of dating (our first date was 10 years ago yesterday!), but since then I told him a bouquet of flowers would mean a lot more to me if they were (1) not generic red roses, and (2) on a random day instead of a “required” day. I’d much rather we just spend some quality time together, since that’s my love language. He happily obliges. 😉
Last weekend I took a few pics of the kids in red & pink to send to their Grandparents (because OF COURSE), and other than that we just spent Valentine’s Day having fun together as a family! We watched some Skijoring in a town about an hour from here and had a nice soak at the hotsprings afterwards. So much fun!
