Since we first started dating, we’ve always had a weekend trip around Valentine’s Day. The first year it wasn’t intentional, the second year I decided to make it into a gift (cheesy, over-the-top homemade travel brochure and all), and by the third year this weekend trip gained it’s “tradition” status. It’s nice to take a few days to get a change of scenery and explore a little together.
