Valentine’s Day | Tradition

Do you have a tradition for Valentine’s Day? Evan and I started a tradition our first year of marriage and I love it. His favorite meal of all time is his grandmother’s spaghetti and meatballs. I was finally given the recipe after we were married! (not kidding!) For the past three years, I have made his grandmother’s homemade spaghetti and meatballs for us on Valentine’s. We use our fine china and crystal and sit in the dining room together. It’s fun and makes it a little more intimate than just sitting at the kitchen table or island with our everyday dishes! Sometimes we still make plans to go out to dinner too because we do love trying new restaurants and we use any opportunity to do so! This year we are going to New Orleans the day after Valentine’s Day for a wedding, so we did not make plans to go out to dinner.

We celebrated on Sunday this year because it is time-consuming to make and makes lots of leftovers! We did not want to leave all that food uneaten while we head down to New Orleans! I do not decorate for Valentine’s Day, but I did use red napkins for the occasion! Check out our Valentine’s “date”!

We didn’t end up getting a picture of the two of us unfortunately. We enjoyed a formal sit down meal together with wine, Caesar salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and garlic bread! It was yummy if I do say so myself! The only thing missing was tiramisu! I hope we continue to carry on this tradition in the years to come.
