Valentine’s Day 2011

February 15, 2011

It wasn’t the red roses – the epitome of Valentine gifts. Nor was it the strawberries minus the chocolate – still inside their grocery store container. When normal couples think of fancy dinner plans, teddy bears, and chocolate, we’re the kind of couple that keeps things simple. Sushi, a little gaming, a little couch potatoing. On the weekend.  Precious time together? Check! Done and done.

And then, IT happens. In the middle of a busy Monday afternoon, I hear a car pull up. In walks Jeremy with a handful of roses and a carton of fresh strawberries. What?! “WHY are you here in the middle of a weekday?!” All he does is smile and say, “Happy Valentine’s Day.” He knows I like flowers – whatever kind they are. He knows I love strawberries and fresh ones are the best. He knows my chocolate allergy makes me super sad on days like today. But what he doesn’t know – what I keep to myself as I smile back at him is this: Jeremy taking off a busy Monday afternoon – just so we can spend the rest of the day together, eating leftovers and watching Anthony Bourdain episodes on the Travel Channel – that is by far the best Valentine’s Day gift he could ever give me.

May love find surprising ways to touch your life this year. Happy Valentine’s Day!
