Yes, Valentine's Day.
The first Valentine's Day Blake and I celebrated together was themed 'White Trash' (his idea, not mine). We dressed like white trash (I had quite a hard time with this), drank Old Milwaukee, then went to White Castle AND Taco Bell. I felt sick, can't imagine why.
Our second Valentine's Day we had a huge fight, were on the verge of breaking up, and I showed up at his door with a case of Old Milwaukee - for old time's sake.
Last Valentine's Day there was an entire ocean between us.

I have no doubt that Hallmark is at fault for making me believe this.

Here are my favorites:
