I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. And H got out of bed CRANKY. And I was ready to be all, fuck Valentine's day.

But then he made me my coffee and stirred the sugar in so thoroughly (like he always does) and heated the milk to just the right temperature and smiled at me and said "Good morning."

And that will do.

  1. It's a weird holiday. But in the spirit of LOVE, I moved my fiancée's car this morning for street parking. Happy Valentines Day.

    2. Dishes are good. Or pick up his fav beer on the way home tonight? If you're on the eastside, a growler from Eagle Rock or the new Stone taproom is always awesome.

    3. The beer slash scotch slash bourbon idea is good. LIKE HELL I am going out tonight. I'm going to stay in and do my taxes while he works on his music side project.

  4. Awww. My husband leaves me coffee every morning, almost always with the sugar stirred in. This always gets me too. Three cheers for swell husbands!

  6. Mike made and brought me coffee too. :) And when I said, "I'll make us a nice breakfast" he said he actually wasn't hungry, so I didn't.

  7. Maybe this is some kind of ongoing satirical performance?

    3. Do you think she just doesn't ever check back to see the discussion? I don't get it!

  8. I'm buying my dude a Toblerone.

    (Also today I learned that my grandmother got SECRETLY MARRIED in a Buddhist ceremony somewhere in Southeast Asia a short while before her death. Wish I'd known that while she was still alive so I could've high-fived her.)

  9. Very sweet.

    I let my husband sleep in late while I opened the shop alone AND made tacos for dinner. We take sleep and tacos pretty seriously around here so I'm satisfied with my declarations of love.

  11. my partner surprised me by booking my flight to Berlin (not too cheesy, since we were already planning a working holiday but super nice and unexpected for him to get my ticket).. I got him a little bag of sweets. He asked 'did you go all the way to Thornton's to get this' and I was like.. 'yeah - no, I grabbed them at the corner shop on the way home from work...' I also grabbed alcohol though, so I think that made up for it?
