As a new mom or a pregnant woman, I didn’t always feel particularly romantic on February 14th. But I did appreciate any efforts to make me feel loved and appreciated.
My husband, who is a fantastically thoughtful fellow, took me out for Valentine’s Day sushi while I was pregnant with my son. I had been experiencing deep and vivid sushi cravings and enjoyed the food so much that I actually asked him to stop talking so I could chew in silence with my eyes shut. It was so rude–but the sushi was divine! That kind of patience and grace is really the stuff of true love.
