I love me some Valentine's Day

Chris and I celebrate Valentine's day on February 15Th. It's the day we met at the Last Chance Single Adults dance. It's convenient to not have to fight with other couples for a restaurant reservation. I was bummed that the 15Th is on a Sunday but so far we've been having fun celebrating early.

Yesterday our ward went all out on a Valentine's ball for the adults. They set up one of those big white wedding tents, had lots of balloons and flowers, sparkling cider and very good dinner. Dancing was a hoot especially seeing all the other couples get down with no shame. It was one of those events that if any teenagers were present they would of been curled up in the corner horrified by their embarrassing parents. Needless to say all the adults had a blast.

Today we're going to a concert. One of my favorite bands, ALO, will be in town. I'm pretty excited. Tomorrow we'll go about our Sunday and maybe eat a few extra chocolates, the stale heart shaped sugar cookies that are still laying around, and reminisce about the 6 years we've been together and ask each other the inevitable "what the heck were you thinking?"

Happy Valentine's Day everybody.

has it been six years? i'm into it--tangible representation of feeling even if it is institutionalized and commercialized. you look great in your red dress.

i like this dress too. It's stretchy so I think I'll be able to wear it for a while.
