I'm not going to lie, being married and celebrating Valentine's Day is pretty fun. This was never a holiday that I loved, nor is it up there as one of my favorites. But a day scheduled on the calendar where we have to put bickering and stresses aside so that we can concentrate, solely, on each other. Yeah, it's awesome and such an important day!
We don't go all out, get each other gifts or do anything "major" for Valentine's Day. No. To us, it is a day that we spend together celebrating our relationship... and our love of food. Our tradition is that I make a nice, hearty breakfast and Bryan makes an elaborate 5* dinner.

The homemade dinner menu I awoke to. Yes, Bryan came up with the menu items and even found fancy scissors (that aren't mine) to cut the edges with. I love the title of this years at home restaurant "The Gailey House." Last year he named it "Kaitlyn's Cafe." Super cute.
Love my man working hard in the kitchen!
We gorged... and it was amazing!

We went to a matinee showing of The Vow. We both cried like babies, came out of the theater even more appreciative and in love with each other than when we went in and just loved the overall message of the movie.
That night, after cleaning up mounds and mounds of Cali's vomit, we snuggled on the couch and watched the 3rd reunion episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills followed by our girls, the Real Housewives of Orange County and of course, the Teen Mom finale.
