Sweetheart Saturday - Valentine's Day

So Ari and I have never been the types who make a big deal of Valentine's Day - after our first year or two together we decided the best gift two busy university students/professionals/parents/generally busy people could give each other was quality time, so we stopped the sappy-gift-no-one-really-wants thing and focused on just making a nice date - maybe live theatre instead of a movie, maybe a nice restaurant instead of roadhouse fare.

This year, as we have an infant son, we're not even going to really get the opportunity to do that, but we're going to try to make the evening special with a nice home cooked meal, some wine, together at our kitchen table instead of on our own time at our computer desks or watching TV because Ari's coming in late, or I'm feeding the baby when dinner's ready, or whatever. It doesn't sound like much, but it's just nice to make the time as it's been in short supply of late with my play, and then Ari having a crappy shift at work this week. And Little Tyke is both of our Valentine's, so we didn't want to go somewhere we couldn't include him also. :)

God that sounds so dreadfully boring and 'old married couple' when I write it out but ... hey. Having someone home to help with the baby and the chores this afternoon, and to sit down with for a nice meal and a glass of wine tonight, after a good night's sleep for both of us, is exciting to *me* anyway lol. :D

Your life isn't boring and that sounds like it was a beautiful Valentine's Day (I also saw pics over on Facebook).

lol No that's my point - *I* thought it was a lovely evening! Just other cool, go-out-every-night childless types might read this and go 'yawn'. lol
