Given the major purchase, we agreed to forgo gifts and dinner this year. This weekend we'll be headed up to Summit County to stay at our family friend's condo (the owner happens to be our realtor's daughter) and spend the weekend snowboarding prior to all of this homeowner business.
Denver Restaurant Week is Feb 22-28; so we agreed we'll do a nice meal out (at a discounted price) as a Valentines/Home celebration. Yesterday Ben sent an email along the lines of "just checking, we're not doing gifts or cards tomorrow, right? I'll buy you some flowers once we're in the house". I agreed and low and behold this morning I woke up to this, jerk (I mean that in the most loving way).
Although...that really does say a lot! Happy Valentine's Day!
