I know most people hate Valentine's day. Some think it's silly. Some might not even care if this day existed.
But I'm glad it exists. I love Valentine's day. I love that on this day 8 years ago, Andrew and I went on our very FIRST date. I was a sophomore in high school. He was a senior. We went to Second Street, ordered chicken fingers and french fries and saw Minority Report at the Regal Cinema. As he dropped me off at my doorstep that night, he asked if I would "be his girlfriend". :) (oh, those beloved, awkward high school days!)
This special day, 8 years ago, is where it all began. And that's why Valentine's Day holds such a sweet memory for us.
And this is how we celebrated our 2nd February 14th as Mr. and Mrs. White:
We exchanged these
My sweet Andrew gave me these
Instead of fighting overcrowded restaurants, we opted for an intimate candlelit table for 2 like this
And we feasted on Pasta Bolognese , Lemon-Butter Green Beans with Pine Nuts, Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Heart Shaped Brownie Sundaes for dessert. Oh.my.gosh...SO good.
