Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

14 Feb

Wishing you a happy  St. Valentine

Ten years ago, my husband and I had our first St. Valentine’s Day together. We’d only been dating less than a month, so we were in that oh so awkward stage of dating- far too soon for heavy romantic gestures and far enough along to think, hmm, this is going pretty nice.

We decided to keep it simple: no gifts, but dinner out at a nice restaurant and I was to pick the place. I love Japanese, so I, of course, chose the sushi place near my home. I ordered sushi, he ordered teriyaki chicken. When he mentioned he’d never had sushi before, I shared a tasty piece of the salmon with him. He chewed thoughtfully, swallowed and, after a pause and a funny look, said it was okay, but kind of bland.

Then I find out he doesn’t like fish. At all. Ever. And didn’t know that piece of sushi would be raw.

But he tried it for me.

That’s a brave man.

And that no gifts plan? Well, there’s this cute bear that sits in my office . . .

This year, our celebration will be quiet. Due to his work schedule, we’ll go out to dinner on Tuesday and over to Barnes and Noble. Hmm, I get to pick this year, maybe it’s time to go go Japanese again.

Wishing happy St. Valentine’s Day surprises to you all!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Love at the lips was touch
As sweet as I could bear;
And once that seemed too much;
I lived on air.
