Some people think Valentine's day is dumb. But we LOVE it.
A good reason to think of the people you love, and mostly your spouse.
We keep it pretty simple...
This year I had been in Orem working at Covenant's Office helping train people.
I came home on Valentine's day. It was a treat to just be together.
When I arrived home, our place was spotless, and finally our Christmas tree was out of sight. (It had been in the corner empty for over a month.) This was a present in itself... but there were also a lovely vase of flowers on the table.
I started getting a cold... and didn't feel that great, so I asked Cruz if he would just pick up some take-out on the way home.
Which was perfect because restaurants were going to be busy. Cruz worked his connection at the Mexican restaurant down the street and they put his take out order ahead of everyone else!!! Awesome for us... sorry for all those waiting. He also had a surprise box of Belgian chocolates for me; and of course a card. (I really like cards from the husband-o!)
I decided to get Cruz some of his favorite treats for his little Valentine's gift....
Chocolate covered almonds.... yum!
Movie Theater gift card, with a drink cup for the megaplex... which is only $1.00 to fill when you go to the movie.
(The movie we eventually went to was... Jack the Giant Slayer... which was really good.)
We ate our dinner and then watched a cheesy chick-flick on Netflix.
It was a perfect little Valentine's day for us.
Love you Mr. Cruz Armando Marcano!
