I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved ones! I spent mine at the gym, going for a run and then cooking dinner for my family. Jeremy and I aren’t very romantic when it comes to heart shaped holidays. We don’t do cards, big gifts or boxes of candy, however I was secretly hoping for some chocolate.
Here’s the big question: Is romance synonymous with love? Our good friend called us and reminded us that Vegas is a very romantic destination for Valentine’s Day weekend. With promises of romance we took the 6 hour drive to Nevada and proceeded to have a great weekend. Apparently Valentine’s weekend is a big one in Vegas. All of the chapels are booked up, hotels are without vacancies and brides and grooms are running around the strip getting in their last hurrah.
The reality is, our Valentine’s weekend in Vegas wasn’t romantic, but it was filled with love. We spent time with friends we hadn’t seen in a while, enjoyed dinner together, clapped loudly at our friend’s gig after every song and spent time on their couch just catching up. We didn’t need flowers, cards or candles. We just needed the people we love and the time to enjoy them.
