with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
As we all know, Valentine’s Day (or Love Day, for the old school Simpsons fans) is next week. The merchandise has been out since the day after Christmas and it’s all you hear about on t.v. or online. Gift guides and date ideas and giveaways, oh my!
I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. It started out because we didn’t want to buy into the commercialism, and we went on regular date nights as it was. There has been the occasional Valentine’s Day where we’ve surprised the other with something, but we usually have the “We’re not buying presents, RIGHT?” conversation and we both stick to it. Usually.
I don’t know if that’s the plan this year or not, because we haven’t had that conversation, but I think I’m going to get him a little something anyway. We’ve had a particularly rough couple of weeks and while he and I are now (better than) fine, there’s still a lot of things going on that are stressful. So, I think surprising him with a gift to thank him for being such a great husband, father, and person is in order. I just have no idea what that gift will be.
What do you give each other for Valentine’s Day?
