50% of the voters chose a nice dinner out followed by a movieFor our Valentines Day, we decided to not fight the crowds and instead we spread it out over two evenings. On Thursday we made a fun dinner together at home (chicken alfredo pizza), traded gifts (Taya made a scrapbook of "the greatest love story ever told- ours"), and we both got a little teary-eyed as we read our mushy cards to each other. Then last night we went to a fun Brazilian Steakhouse where we enjoyed grown-up conversation for a few hours before going to see a movie. It was nice just to be out with each other. Our minivan isn't quite the same as the mustang, but we still love to pop in our old dating music and just drive and talk...
25% selected a romantic dinner at home
0% picked ballroom dance lessons with a bunch of other love-birds
2 people thought spending the day apart (he goes golfing, she goes to the spa) was the best way to celebrate being together. If you tried that one at home, let me know how that worked for you... (but don't blame me for suggesting the idea)
One highlight of V-day was just being together and thanking God for the great gifts of love He has given to us. The other highlight was when Isaiah & Ross gave Taya her gift and card, which had a bunch of "wittle" (little) candles scattered around it.
It all started with a simple question "can we roll the candles?" He thought it was the funnest thing ever and he laughed so hard that we thought he was going to throw up, he ended up getting the hiccups and couldn't get rid of them for a half hour. The following video clip is about 1 hour of giggles condensed down to 60 seconds.
We have celebrated some incredible valentines days- going to the symphony followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride through Victoria, a day at the spa downtown Seattle followed by a four-hour fondue dinner at the Melting Pot, etc. But now one of our favorite Valentines memories will forever be rolling candles across the desk with Isaiah.
