Happy Valentine's Day!
So yesterday I wasn't sure we were going to get to celebrate because of the demands of school, but we did the best we could. I was okay with it and thinking that we would just do what we had to do. Then Austin showed up at school with all kinds of goodies! Tulips, chocolate, jelly bellies, a card and a big stuffed purple unicorn I am calling Kirbee.
That evening I cooked a real meal (when you are in grad school this is a rarity) while he studied for his test the next morning. I set the table, we turned on some music, opened a bottle of wine and had a wonderful dinner. We took turns answering "love maps" questions (a therapy tool) and having a blast. "Love maps" are a whole stack of questions like "What is your partner's secret ambition?" or "What is your partner's favorite way to spend a weekend?"
Then I helped Austin study.
