Although we love love and work hard to keep our marriage vibrant and healthy, Valentine’s is pretty low-key for us. Melissa worked for several years at a flower shop when she was a teenager, and red roses and mylar balloons lost some of their charm after a few frantic Valentine’s Days selling them by the hundreds. We don’t go out for a fancy dinner, or even exchange gifts, but we do like to do a fondue! A friend gave us a fondue set for our wedding, and we love the tradition of a easy, slow meal at home. We always seem to have really wonderful, sentimental conversations while we wait for our little skewers to cook, and we always end up laughing about the inevitable broccoli or mushroom that gets lost in the bubbling oil. It is a simple tradition, but definitely romantic. And there are few things we enjoy more than a good meal with each other!
