I’ve never been crazy about Valentine’s Day because, aside from being a friend’s birthday, it’s just a normal day.
I don’t need extravagant displays of affection one day out of the year – I want a deep and steady love every day of the year.
Today I spent the day with my best friend in the whole world. We got Wendy’s to go, watched Age of Adeline, then we watched Dumb and Dumber To. We made ourselves chocolate covered strawberries because I refuse to buy 10 premade for the cost of 3 packages of berries. We told each other how great the other was. We played with my sweet pup and played just dance. It is the best Valentine’s Day I’ve had in a long time, maybe in my life, and I got to spend it with my best friend – my husband.
He didn’t buy me flowers because I think they’re a waste of money. He didn’t buy me a card – also because I think they’re a waste of money, and I’d rather have his loving words than someone else’s. Instead, we spent time together and had fun. I am so thankful for my husband who loves me all year long.
