So of course I was hoping for something nice for Valentine’s Day. And Daniel kept telling me (like he does every year) that he doesn’t buy into all this commercial stuff and if he wants to show me he loves me he can do so any day of the year. Normally we don’t do much (although the first year we were together – during our engagement – he did buy me chocolate hearts and take me out to a hotel for hot chocolate and cookies) but this year he surprised me.
He organized a babysitter, and booked a table at Shigezo which is a sushi restaurant in the neighborhood. We both love sushi and what’s good about this place is that it offered a special for Valentine’s Day that was not nearly as expensive as all the other restaurants which are totally milking the opportunity as Daniel says.
It turned out to be really lovely actually. We ended up not going cheap and getting the holiday special – because we both love sushi so much we just ordered a ton of that to share. And then Daniel ordered a fun sweet sparkling wine for me, just to get us both in the holiday mood a bit without admitting to the fact that we were celebrating Valentine’s Day! He is so very cute though and we both had a great time.
