Valentine's simplified. That was our goal three years ago when Mr. P and I agreed to exchange only chocolates. In the midst of a a holiday and special occasion whirlwind of Christmas>>Anniversary>>Valentine's>>My Birthday, the pressure for a constant stream of thoughtful gifts took all the fun out of giving and receiving. Simplifying our Valentine exchange has alleviated the stress and we've had sweet Valentine success that we both look forward to.
Here's my recipe for a relaxed Valentine's at home. TGIV!
I’m a Defense Consultant with a tendency towards pulling office pranks, taking lunch breaks, and drinking Wawa shakes. I’m also an English major with a serious obsession with alliteration and rhymes. While I’m not keeping America safe, I’m priming, sanding and painting. Or increasing our fresh veg intake. Or pontificating on my newly minted status as a wife. All the while, I’m getting myself into Lucille Ball-esque scrapes and making Jim Carey-esque faces. Post-wedding, I’m bringing blogging home to explore renovations, recipes, and reflections.
