We usually keep things very simple for Valentine’s Day. Possibly dinner after work, or I’ll whip up something comforting or one of our favorites at home.
But this year, we decided we needed to intentionally unwind from a very stressful & emotional month in January. So we booked a staycation, and I was really looking forward to it. 🙂
Mostly because we’ve never done anything like it before, and also because I was craving a break so bad. A rest. A good one.
Well Bren took a while to get off “work mode”…having calls coming in on Valentine’s Day can be quite a hassle, especially if you’re on leave and trying to have a break?? Anyway, we still had a pretty good time…exploring spots in Orchard we would normally not go to, and he brought me to Botanical Gardens which was a surprise – it’s one of my favorites to just hang around at. Love it!
Was a long weekend break, and though we’re now back home…it’s still nice to be able to spend time together, doing our normal things like cooking (me) and sorting out his late uncle’s pending matters (Bren).
Always nice to do something out of the ordinary once in a while in a marriage. 🙂
