Our first Valentine’s Day together was when we were still in college and I gave him the choice of taking me to Cici’s Pizza or Waffle House when he asked. Period. His buddies gave him a hard time about it because they were taking their dates to expensive (for college kids) dinners and our date would cost less than $20. I told him no candy, no flowers, a card if he wanted. I love cards. Its an obsession.
He was such an awesome boyfriend year round that I found it silly to place a great importance on THAT day. Every year since then, because he insists on taking me out, we alternate between Cici’s Pizza (they have delicious cinnamon rolls) and Waffle House because I love waffles. We always have a great time in each other’s company at our little spots and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
