Last weekend, Michael and I celebrated a couple of anniversaries as well as Valentine’s Day. I’m going to break this up a bit and just share what we did for Valentine’s Day. In the next post, I’ll go into what we did for our anniversary.
Saturday morning, Michael and I made french toast and spent the morning just hanging out with each other. During the busy season, we don’t see a whole lot of each other during the week, so the weekends are precious to us anyway. However, this weekend was extra special since it was Valentine’s for us.
Right before we headed out to lunch, we exchanged gifts. If you know anything about the Love Languages, my language is “Gifts” and his language is “Words of Affirmation”. When we get gifts for each other, we tend to keep that in mind. Michael designed and crafted this necklace for me. Isn’t it gorgeous? I absolutely love it. I made a frame for him that says “I love you because” behind the glass, and then I can use a dry erase marker to write the reasons I love him each day.
For lunch, we went to this little Italian place in my favorite Downtown area (I told you I would talk about this place a lot). We each had pizza and leftovers of pizza. It was SO good and the restaurant is really neat. I had Farmer’s Pie pizza which was loaded with vegetables. Michael had his own personal pizza with Italian sausage. I can’t eat sausage because I have somewhat of a pork allergy.
After lunch, we headed to the local theater to watch William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. It was being put on by the Young Actors Guild. We weren’t sure how it was going to be since this was our first play at this theater. It was really funny! The actors who played Benedict, Beatrice and Dogberry were hilarious. Even the kissing scenes and dance scenes were well done. They picked contemporary music to play between scenes which at times was weird, but the production overall was well worth it. We are already looking into going back next month for another play!
That was pretty much the extent of our celebration as far as Valentine’s Day goes. Stay tuned in the next post for our traditional celebration for our Dating and Engagement Anniversary!
