How do you typically celebrate Valentine’s Day?
For a long time we didn’t because I came into our relationship a Valentine’s hater. Then when we had Jack it became an opportunity to get out for the night, last year we saw Annie in New York and that was amazing. This year we didn’t do much other than putting the kid to bed early and enjoying a meal at home where we can actually talk to each other.

I like the idea of cuddling but when it comes down to it I prefer to be left alone. Except with Jack then I want to cuddle and he wants to be left alone.

Overall, are you pro- or anti- Valentine’s Day?
I used to be very anti-Valentine’s Day in high school and college I used to wear black on Valentine’s Day. I admit it was a bit over the top. Now I’m kinda “meh” about the whole thing. Though Jack is now excited about any holiday and that makes me want to make it special for him. He’s my little Valentine and it doesn’t get any better than that.
