“My husband and I first started spending time together in the summer before our senior year of high school. We were in the same English class that fall and decided to do our summer reading together sprawled under a tree in a meadow at our county park. Somewhere in the first 20 pages or so of the book, his hand crept slowly closer to mine. Gradually we let our fingers intertwine. We spent the rest of the afternoon holding hands, lying in the grass and staring at the blue sky, dreaming.”
“A special moment in my life was with my husband a little over a year ago around Valentine’s. I had just started my business and was working ridiculous hours since I had a full time job also. I didn’t think we were doing anything for Valentine’s and my husband surprised me with tickets to Washington D.C. (we live in Oregon!). He planned out a whirlwind weekend so we could redo a past date we had in D.C. several years prior. He told me to pack a bag after work on Friday and we were on a plane a couple hours later. We went to all the museums on Saturday and I got a mild case of food poisoning from the cafe. Although he had made reservations at the same restaurant we dined at previously, he was completely fine canceling it to order room service since I was a bit under the weather. It was great to spend time with him and revisit the same places we visited while we were dating. Even though we didn’t get to go to the same restaurant, it was great to be taken care of and to spend time with my husband, who really went the extra mile. That was even better than wining and dining out.”
