I promised a few details about my belated Valentine's Day. And I try to always keep my promises. So here you go.

It was lovely.

My boyfriend is a busy, full-time single dad, so just getting to spend a day with him is a precious gift in itself. When I got to his house, we headed to Stone Mountain and walked to the top. I haven't been to Stone Mountain in years, and I've never walked up the mountain. Boy was I feeling my recent lack of exercise. If you've never walked up, I highly recommend it, especially on a lovely day like we had Friday. It does get steep at some parts, but it's not too bad. I did need to take one break, though. And I was a sweaty betty by the time I reached the top. Bless J for still liking me despite my sweaty out-of-shapeness.

When we got home, he gave me my present--he cooked me a Mexican fiesta, complete with yummy grilled chicken and steak burritos, Mexican beer and home-made margaritas. Plus, he'd set it all up  in the most adorable way.

 So yeah. Valentine's Day. Not too bad this year. :)
