Valentine’s Day 2020: the last time my husband and I had a full on date night. Inside a restaurant. With a babysitter. Ahhhh, the good old days!
No doubt, this year’s Valentine’s Day dinner will be significantly different for all of us. You might opt for a much more family friendly celebration, or try to put the kids to bed a little early and enjoy a kidless meal at home. Either way, I hope you try one of these dinner ideas to make the night special for you and your Valentine(s)!
We plan to be home with the kids (just like any other night!) but once they’re in bed I think we’ll open another envelope from our Year of Dates… I can’t wait!
