Happy Valentines Day!
This isn't really a special holiday, since it's purely commercial, but I embrace any chance to celebrate anything. Especially because today is also our 7th monthiversary of being married!
We don't have big plans for tonight. Neither one of us is big on crowds, so we avoid going out to eat on Valentines Day. Instead, we'll have a nice dinner at home.
This weekend is a different story. We're going to stay one night at a local B&B called the Morey Mansion Inn. I have been fascinated with this place ever since I first saw it years ago. It is one of the most amazing houses I've ever seen. We wanted to stay there on our wedding night, but it was too far away from our wedding site. So now we are leaping at the chance to stay there, even though it's quite pricey. We are justifying this expense by not getting each other gifts and saying that we are doing this to also celebrate our 3-year dating anniversary, which is exactly 1 month from today.
I truly can't believe that it's already been 7 months since our wedding day. Time goes by so fast. So far marriage has actually been pretty easy, though I know we'll have tough times eventually. I'm just grateful to be married to Roy, just in case you didn't get it the first 50,000 times I said it.
