A New Twist on Valentine's Day

This year was a new twist on Valentine's Day. I had class on the night of Valentine's and John had class over lunch. So, we decided to go out for a Valentine's breakfast. It was a new twist on the tradition of the day, and it made me feel very special because John hates to get up early in the morning (it also saved us quite a bit of money). We went to Speculoos on the Strand.
Then, John told me he was going to take me out to a nice dinner at Rudy and Paco's (a local fine restaurant) the night after Valentine's, but there was a catch.....we were to go with 30 other MD/PhD students and applicants. Then Saturday, we also were to spend the day entertaining MD/PhD students followed by a progressive dinner. Romantic, huh?
Despite the nontraditional nature of the day, we did go on to exchanged cards and gifts. Mostly, I had to share the shirts my mom sent to John and me for Valentine's. I don't know if he will ever wear his outside of the house so I decided to post it for everyone to see. I thought they were cute. They could not express our sentiments more. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone.

Sounds like a good valentines day to me!! We never do anything since Jeremy's birthday is the day before...I think he thinks that gives him a good excuse to get out of it :) Hopefully I can see you when you are in town...I have to work that whole weekend...dumb.
