Day of Love

15 Feb

Yesterday was a fun filled day of celebrating love. The hubby and I had a great night out. We’re usually not too big on Valentine’s day or going out to dinner with the rest of the world, but since our sitter was available, we didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to have a little alone time. We left our little cupid with the sitter and went out for a lovely dinner.

We went out to a hip sushi place a few miles down the road. I had only been there a couple of times a few years ago, so I forgot how good it was. I can’t wait to go back! We shared a bottle of cold sake-yummy! For dinner, the hubby had his usual–chicken teryaki. He doesn’t care for fish, but luckily doesn’t mind taking me out to enjoy it. Woot! And, I had a delicious roll made with shrimp, cream cheese, and spicy tuna and topped with salmon and lemon. So goooood! It’s making my mouth water right now just thinking about it! Then, we splurged and enjoyed a fried cheesecake for dessert. We try not to have too much sugar, but, hey, it was a special occasion. Everything in moderation. 😉

We had a really nice time reflecting on how much our lives have changed in the past few years, how different things are when you become a parent, and how grateful we are to have each other and a handsome little boy. I think it’s important to have times like this together, and I hope we can do it again soon.

Love this man! ❤

Valentine’s day 2013 was my favorite one so far. Not to sound cliché, but it really made me realize how important it is to focus on the ones you love and be grateful for having them in your life. Sometimes when we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, we can take the ones we love the most for granted. It’s always good to have a special day to reflect on this love and let each other know how much they mean to you. This is the new meaning of Valentine’s day to me; it’s not about chocolate, flowers and being wined and dined, but about L-O-V-E! ;o)
