Valentine's Day Update

Bob and I had a very nice Valentine's Day. The best thing about it was that we sent a dozen long-stemmed roses to one of our single friends. She's been feeling sad and lonely lately and we wanted her to feel loved and special even though she's not seeing anyone right now. We were more excited about giving that gift to her than we would have been had we gone and gotten something for each other. She LOVED them and we were thrilled with how special a dozen roses can make someone feel.

After I got off work, I drove home, did my hair, put on make-up, and got dressed up for my husband. We had reservations at Timber Lodge. Nothing too fancy, but we had a coupon AND a gift certificate so we thought we'd put both to good use for V-Day. We got there a little bit late due to traffic, but we had a table within minutes. Walk-ins were not so lucky. We were told that the wait for walk-ins was 45 to 60 minutes!

Our dinner was great. We ordered an appetizer, had soup, bread, and salad and by the time our dinner came, we could each only eat a half a dozen bites before declaring ourselves full. We had a hostess take our photo:When we got home, we put our left-overs away and then we did what most couples do on Valentine's Day evening...we checked out email and watched TV. Heh! Well, we did do that but we also did other stuff too. Overall, it was a good day/night.

How sweet was that to send flowers to your friend?!! That is so very nice and thoughtful!

Your dinner sounded lovely...and the photo was really lovely, too.

I laughed out loud at the "we did other stuff, too" -- very cute.

That is one of the sweetest, most unselfish things I've ever heard. You and Bob are angels.
