Love Day

When Jake and I were dating, I told him I wasn't the biggest fan of Valentine's Day. I'm just not. I'd rather he do something cute and tender on a day he isn't obligated to. He didn't believe me so he bought me some roses and candy and we watched the waves break at Pipeline. I remember walking out of the dorm where I lived for a semester and there he was standing next to Benny the Burb all "Hope Floats" style with roses and there was a group of girls watching me.

Minus the obnoxiously tight jeans

This year, however, we did something uber romantic. Upon my request...

We had dinner at Costco.

We shopped at Costco and Wal-Mart.

And then we came home and watched a gushy movie.

On the drive back he kept telling me that he felt he didn't do anything special for me but I shared with him my thoughts from above... I would love it if he did something nice, just not on a day where everyone tries to outdo each other.
