What are your Valentines Day Traditions?
My husband and I have been together for 36 yrs, however we will be married for 10 years in May. We have had many valentine’s days to celebrate. Valentines Day Traditions are generally roses, chocolates, an animal of some kind and going out to eat. That’s fine for some, however it’s not for me. It’s not that I don’t like the flowers, candy and going out to eat, it’s just that I’m older and I don’t need all of that! I just need a simple thing to say I love you. This picture was taken in 2016 just before my husband’s 55th birthday and just after our son in law’s birthday.
A few years ago my husband wanted to order me roses, so he did and I got the bear and chocolates that went with it. It was 9PM when they arrived. So we didn’t go out to eat, ended up with some left overs and my husband called to complain about it, so the next day I got a whole nother bouquet, bear and chocolates, so he gave them to our daughter. This one sticks out because I was starving and couldn’t believe roses stopped me from going out to eat! LOL
Today I was at our granddaughter’s Prince/Princess Royal Ball, right before it started I got a text from my husband. It made me smile. He had already told me Happy Valentine’s day twice before he left for work.
February is commonly known as the month of love, where we celebrate the life of Saint. Valentine who is the patron of love, young people and happy marriage. Love is also a very funny thing. My husband and I are totally opposite of each other. As I like to say, he’s salt and I’m pepper, and salt and pepper belong together. 😉 We met on a blind date through our friends who are no longer together and were surprised to hear that we had gotten married. LOL We are no longer friends, but they heard from mutual friends.
My husband and my Valentines Day Traditions are at home with a nice meal or fast food if we don’t feel like cooking and watching a movie. This picture is how we celebrated this valentine’s day. The movie River Runs Red, Heart shaped pizza and our daughter made homemade heart brownies and gave us one.
