Our engagement photo 1999. As usual I am a walking fashion statement. We haven’t had a normal Valentines Day in 11 years because our oldest daughter was born on Valentine’s Day so we end up having a party or something. Whoever marries her can kill two birds with one stone.
The last real date we had on Valentines was in 2000. It was a blast. We went to this Peruvian restaurant and the waitress took our order and then came back 20 minutes later and said, “What did you order again?” All the while we thought our food was being prepared. Ten minutes later she came out again and said, “We are out of that, you need to order something different.” She was so sweet there was no way we could be mad but we did have a movie to catch so we were thinking that might not happen. We got a little anxious and decided to peek in the kitchen just as the cook was putting Western Family french fries in the oil. We sat down, our meals came and the power went out!! No lights, pitch dark! We were not sure what to do and just then the cook got out and pulled his car up to the window and blasted his high beams right through the window. Light!!! We had a romantic dinner for two (the only two in the restaurant) over car light! Great memories!
