Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and I’m gearing up. My boyfriend and I have plans to stay in and cook a romantic dinner together on Thursday and then go out for a nice date on Saturday. That way, we get some nice, romantic alone time, avoid the crazed restaurants on actual Valentine’s Day, and can extend the love into the weekend.
We’re planning on making a maple-glazed salmon with some mashed potatoes, and I may or may not have a dessert surprise up my sleeve. I’d share it with you, but he might read this post, and then the surprise will be no more. I promise to post it post-surprise.
Overall, I like Valentine’s Day. You should never need an excuse to tell someone you love them, but I like that there is at least one day out of the year that is all about love. I also like that Valentine’s Day gives me a reason to do something like this:
And to show off my awesome pink Sweat Pink shoelaces!
What are you Valentine’s Day plans? Do you have any VDay traditions or desserts?
