I’m a sucker for holidays, no matter how commercialized they tend to be. Valentines’ Day is about love, surely, but it’s also a great excuse to eat candy and exchange little heart-shaped notes. What’s not to love? Even when I was single (with exception to a few angsty high school years), I couldn’t help but look forward to a day full of chocolates and heart-printed socks. After all, I always was the girl with pink and red braces. So, yes, I have a real Valentine this year…but love is just an added bonus to an already charming day.
We had a laid-back Valentines’ Day, which was much appreciated. Bobby tried to make me breakfast in bed, but I still wasn’t feeling too well, so I held out until lunch. We went to Song (Thai) for lunch, Junior’s for cheesecake (to go) and later, we cooked a great dinner full of comfort foods – quiche, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Basically, lunch belonged to Bobby and dinner belonged to me. I love my comfort foods, and Bobby would eat curry every single day, if given the chance. It was a nice compromise.
