I guess I never really paid much attention to Valentine’s Day. I mean, my birthday completely overshadows most everything in February, including Hallmark holidays. At any rate, I do recall celebrating Valentine’s Day with Curtis the first year we started dating.
That year, he bought me James Blunt’s CD and roses! He knows the way to a woman’s heart is the sappy song of the moment and roses.
Anyway, this year was a little more low key. I went home over the weekend to celebrate my birthday with my family and Curt. Curtis took me out for mediocre Mexican food (MY FAVORITE!!) and he got me an adorable necklace from Etsy! On Sunday, I went to go get him a card, and I swear I was the only female swarming the Valentine’s Day section. Also, all of the cards are female-oriented. I’m pretty sure Curtis doesn’t want to hear he’s beautiful. I mean, maybe he does.
I bought him a child’s card that had a big jolly cartoon octopus! Teehee. Oh, and man’s chocolate.
On the actual day this year, Kass and Ashley and I just ordered pizza and watched Lifetime. Yeah, we’re cool.
I guess the bottom line is that Valentine’s Day can be fun, but I’m serious, “Singles Awareness Day” people, there’s not much going on here. Every day with Curtis is JUST AS SPECIAL as Valentine’s Day.
I need to wash my hands after typing that.
