Day 149: Your Valentine’s Rose

February 25, 2012

My act of love for Friday will happen today–I’m getting you a single stem rose for our date.

Yesterday, I took our oldest daughter on her Valentine’s date. We went to Starbucks, ordered some drinks, then sat and talked and played games. I even gave her a Valentine’s card in which I asked her to be my Valentine. She blushed and said, “Yes,” with the cutest grin on her face. That’s one date down. After yours, I only have one more to go (the littlest is too young for a date, though our daughters insist that I take her on one).


Day 148: Your Date Card

February 25, 2012

On Thursday, I snuck outside our house, then knocked on the front door. When you answered, I gave you an envelope, which contained this “date card” (inspired by¬†The Bachelor):

In case that's unreadable, it says, "Join me this Saturday and love will lift us up where we belong."

I want to be clear that Saturday’s date is a one-on-one, not a group date. We go on too many of the latter.
