For me I have never liked the idea of Valentines Day as I feel that in a relationship you should do nice things for your partner and surprise them with little gifts frequently. However, the busier me and E both get at work, I am beginning to think it is nice to have a reminder to take a step back and prioritize spending some quality time together.
So this year on the 13th we upheld our ongoing tradition of a home-cooked meal of steak, chips and Bearnaise sauce with red wine, just spending the evening chatting. We don’t usually exchange gifts or cards but this year brought the very unexpected treat of this beautiful bunch of flowers from E which really made my day.
The 14th was spent with friends having drinks in the flat which made our weekend the best of both worlds!
What were your Valentines Day plans?
