I have always loved Valentines--not because I always had a hot date to go on. Actually, I rarely had a date on Valentines day. But Valentines was never about boys and boyfriends and dates to me. I guess it is just been a special day to remember those I love and who love me. In all actuality I think I've only had a date on V day about 3 times in my life. But that never made the day less special. Every V day my parents would buy me something little and send me a cheesy card to tell me how much they love me. More often than not my dad would send me flowers and I think that made me feel special. It's not the kind of special that comes from some slight to stay boyfriend or lover, but the kind of special from someone who always loved me and loved me from the beginning. No matter if my hair is greesy or I don't have on makeup, or I'm not that funny or charming, no matter if I mess up or do right. Valentines always was a reminder that I've got ones I love and ones who love me.
But.....this year, me and the Mr. have a hottt date planned for Valentines day. Surprise Surprise we have one of the top ranked restaurants in the USA not too far from us. It's called The Fearrington House. You can check out more info here. I'm pretty excited because I have a beautiful new floor length dress to wear. We picked up the last slot available for Valentines Day, so we were pretty lucky. Babysitter is set, legs will be shaved :), I'll put on makeup and perfume and spend some time with the man I love.
For those I love,
