Valentine’s Day seems largely to be that annual event that will stretch a relationship to its limits and, sometimes, break them. Girls set unreal expectations on guys, or guys assume that girls will place such high hopes on the day and resent it. In new relationships, inevitably one member of the relationship will either overshoot and scare the other person away, or undershoot and make the other person feel unloved and underappreciated.
That being said, I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I felt the baby move for the first time, used my pedicure/manicure gift certificate, and successfully made a new recipe. I took a walk with my dear husband and remembered to make it to my Pilates class.
In short, it was a good day, but mostly like any other day. The only real concession I made to it being a special day was buying a couple slices of key lime pie for Steve.
Hope yours went just as well and that you aren’t nursing a broken heart after giving your girlfriend a gym membership for Valentine’s Day.
