    I have to work Valentine’s Day but my husband and I usually always go out for a nice dinner. He makes reservations at a local restaurant.

    I have a BBQ with my wife and family. Being together as we get older is the best Valentine’s Day.

    We usually exchange a small gift, and we might eat out someplace special, if not on the 14th, then on one of the days right around it. This year, however, my husband has just had a relapse of walking pneumonia, which I sincerely hope is not turning into real pneumonia. He just woke up and is taking a hot shower. We’ll probably just watch a movie at home later.

    We celebrate it as a family by making frosted sugar cookies and taking them around to people who mean a lot to us, or who might need a little extra love on Valentine’s Day!

    We can’t really afford a restaurant this year, so we’re staying home with our trusty DVD player and I’m making his favorite meal- homemade tacos :)
