Our 5th Valentine's Day


Mack and I celebrated our 5th Valentine's Day together this year and I have to say - it was the best one yet!! In past years we've gone on dates, Mack has skipped class to bring me flowers & a poem, we've eaten lots of sushi, and Mack even cooked for me one year! We don't generally do presents on Valentine's Day, which I'm fine with, but we didn't really have much of a plan this year. We stayed in bed for a looooonggg time and finally decided that we were going to stay in for dinner and cook ourselves something "fancy". After some discussion, we finally decided on a menu! We proceeded to shop for the needed ingredients and go to three-hundred different stores looking for a flippin' food torch for our crème brûlée. After a frustrating search (we honestly should have called the stores first, but I was exaggerating a little bit when I said three-hundred stores) we found a torch at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Hallelujah! We went home and cooked dinner together and it was glorious. Mack wanted to dress up but his suit doesn't fit him anymore so we were still pretty cute but not quite so fancy. Anyway. Of course I had to take pictures because pictures are my favorite way of preserving memories!! Our meal turned out delicious and we set the table all cute and it was a grand old time.

Dinner was delicious. I made Mack a cute lil card. We took turns torching crème brûlée. I even made up a menu! We had such a blast together. I think we'll definitely be doing this in years to come. Hope everyone else had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
