Our Valentine’s Day Tradition

14 Feb

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s a special day booming with love, chocolate and flowers, and accompanied with high expectations, hope and Hallmark cards.

When is comes to PDAs and poetic verses, neither my husband or I are experts in these categories. So when it comes to a day where you are required to spell it out to the world about your love for another, well, we just don’t do so well.

So we created our own Valentine’s Day tradition: We go out for breakfast!

For the past five years, we have made it a tradition to go out for breakfast. I think it started out because I had to work late one Valentine’s Day, so instead we headed out for bacon and eggs.

And we loved it. Almost as much as we love bacon.

There are no crowds, but there is good coffee and conversation. This morning we headed to good ol’ Peter’s, and chatted about the week ahead while watching the town wake up and start the day.

We are admittedly proud of ourselves about creating this VDay Tradition. We know what to expect each Feb. 14 and I always look forward to the time spent together. With the bacon and the husband.

What’s your VDay Tradition?

    Sounds just lovely! But…let us remember who is the true bacon expert – andrea rubino.

    Sounds wonderful Cathy! One of the things we do which I really love and look forward to each year is…
    We love vintage stuff so each year we pick up an old valentine’s day card or appropriate card from an antique store and surprise each other with them. They are very rustic and romantic. We know they had at one point been given with love to another. The original names are usually still on the card and it is fun to think of their love story from 50 plus years ago. We add our own sentiments and keep them in an old chest. Rich always surprises me with other things but that’s the tradition that means the most.

    I think yours is pretty great too. We often venture far out of the city to escape a crowd for dinner but breakfast sounds like a much better idea!!
