So about that memory.
My favorite Valentine memory came from college. I'd been dating my BF at the time for about three months. Not a really long time. But he was a good guy and I was happy, so it was a great three months. We didn't have a whole heck of a lot of money, so we planned a small little celebration in his dorm room. Kentucky Fried Chicken and twinkle lights. Now I hadn't planned on getting him anything big mostly because I didn't have the ready cash.
You're reading along and thinking, well, gee, this isn't really romantic. I'm getting there.
For my gift, he bought a balloon with a bunch of ribbons. The balloon had a bear in it - which I still have. In the balloon. I'd never seen the like. He kept pointing to the ribbons and saying they were so pretty. I thought, big deal, ribbons.
"No, look at the ribbons."
Again, Big Fat Deal.
He then tugged on one of the ribbons. He'd attached a ring to the ribbons. It wasn't an engagement ring, but it was a pretty silver ring with clear stones in the band. I still wear the ring with my wedding ring, even though it wasn't expensive, it was the thought behind it. Every time I look at the simple ring, I think of that Valentine's day.
What about you? What's your favorite Valentine memory? Tell me about it and don't forget to comment!
