Over the years I've had quite a few amazing Valentine's Days. My husband has always done a great job at wining and dining me. He is the master of surprise and all my friends know that for every birthday and anniversary, Lance has something special up his sleeve. My most favorite was on our 1 year anniversary of dating in 2008. Lance came over with an amazing bouquet of sunflowers and lilies and told me that he was sending me to get my hair pressed. This was one of my first times with a press since being natural, so I was geeked. I went out and came back all dolled up. Then he rushes me to get dressed because we're going out to dinner. I had previously told him that I detest going out on Valentine's Day because of all the crowds, and I really feel like the food and service isn't as good. So to ensure I felt comfortable he found a unique spot called Imperial Fez here in Atlanta. I had such a great time! We sat on these comfy floor couches in a secluded area of the restaurant and enjoyed all of the Moroccan culture. The food was pretty good, the belly dancing was amazing, but my Lancey was such a charmer. He was and still is such a gentleman. He opened every door, and catered to any and every need. We talked and laughed and it was a date that further grounded our love :) Sappy I know but such a staple moment in our relationship.
Let's be clear ladies, this wasn't the most memorable Valentine's Day because he spent X amount of money. It was more so because he thought of every possible thing that I would love and appreciate. From the flowers he heard me talk about, to getting my hair done, to a quaint dinner. The thoughtfulness and the detail is what touched me and why I'm still so in love with my beau. So always remember to thank and appreciate them for the small things and he'll never stop!
