Saturday night we hosted our annual heart party (aka grown up Valentine’s Party). I’m sure Justin likes to call it another excuse for Erica to drive me crazy, buy way too many baking supplies, and have a party. I love … Continue reading
When Erica asked me to write a guest post for her blog, I really wasn’t sure what I’d write about, since I’ve never blogged before. I decided that with Valentine’s Day coming up it would be a good idea to write something about a guy’s perspective on this lady-centered holiday.
Although I don’t think anyone loves this holiday more than Hallmark, Erica comes in a very close second. Since this is the case, I know that I can’t ignore the day completely. I’m sure that there are a lot of other people out there in my position right now, and we need to put some effort into Valentine’s Day in order to make it a success…or at least keep the peace.
Even though we don’t care whether or not we get anything for Valentine’s Day, remember, that special other person does. I am lucky that Erica loves baking and entertaining almost as much as she loves Valentine’s Day, so this year she decided to throw a party for some of our friends next weekend in honor of Valentine’s Day. So no dinner reservations to be made on a crazy busy night at restaurants. That doesn’t mean that I get off the hook entirely. I think my major contribution for Valentine’s Day this year will be the help that I can offer in making this party as big of a success as Erica’s parties always are. The last thing that I need to remember is that I can’t call it quits after just helping with the party. Luckily, Erica has dropped a few “subtle” hints as to what she wants for Valentine’s Day so I don’t have to stress over that situation.
