KtMac Confessions: Cheese to My Macaroni

So, yesterday was the fourth Valentine's Day since Joe and I first started dating.  (It still throws me off to think "Oh, we've been dating for 3 years, but this is the 4th Valentine's Day".....so confusing.)  But yesterday was also the very first time we've physically been together for the holiday.

And we had nothing planned. 

Just a low-key evening at home. 

Work, school, naps, housework, homework.  With a little break for a delicious home cooked dinner.  Joe cooked.  Shrimp Palau and steak.  With candles and sweet red wine and our current Netflix obssesion, Dog, The Bounty Hunter on TV.  Some post-dinner snuggles and a surprise of chocolate-covered strawberries and a sweet declaration of love.  

Then back to homework before bedtime and sweet pillow talk.  And while it was decidedly not wildly romantic, it was my idea of a perfect Valentine's Day.  We were together.  We had kisses and cuddles and laughter.  We reminded each other that we love each other and that it's the simple things that mean the most.  The kisses, the little sweet treats, being together, and loving each other like this every day.  And that's really what Valentine's Day should be about - celebrating the everyday love.
