Valentine's Day

I'm not super into Valentine's Day, though I do love getting prezzies any time of year... LB hates anytime that he is forced to buy a gift that expresses his love - he has very strong feelings against valentine's day, and since he's a chef he never wants to eat out on that day either. Over the past 10 years we've done a lot of different things - handmade gifts, no gifts, dinner with friends, romantic dinner at home, nothing at all, and we've never really settled on a tradition.

One thing that we always enjoy doing is walking around the crystal palace in Confederation park and having a nighttime skate on the canal, though this year nighttime skating is a bit dangerous for me- I need to be able to see the cracks on the ice in order to avoid falling.

Another suggestion is to order from Thyme and Again's delicious take out menu for the day. I've never ordered a full meal from them, but I've had foods in all of the categories and have never been disappointed. Last year we had crème brulée in a heart-shaped ramekin from there.

This year, I'm not sure what's going on. I told LB that I want a bit of special treatment since I am having his bebe, but other than that I don't have anything specific in mind. I am in love with this ring from Anthro, and I've done my part in hinting, but that's way more than our usual budget of zero, so we'll see.
