Valentine's Day

I had a perfect Valentine's Day weekend. Ryan came out the eve of Valentine's Day to come with me to Dan's Bar in Walnut Creek to see the band, "The Bad Beat" play. A couple of high school friends are part of the band and I wanted to see them play for the first time.

When Ryan arrived at my house, he surprised me with a card, box of chocolates and a bottle of champagne (my favorite). I hadn't expected anything since he mentioned he wasn't really into the holiday and we've been dating for about a month and a half.

When we arrived at Dan's, we got a couple of beers and played two games of pool, which was fun despite the fact that I play pretty lousy. We listened to the band play; they played cover songs from various time periods. I must say, they play very well and I liked all the song choices.

We slept in late and then had a late brunch at Mimi's Cafe for Valentine's Day. Ryan left in the late afternoon to take care of things before he had to go back to work tomorrow. Sadly, he couldn't join the dogs and me on a hike like we usually do. I'm so grateful for the time we did have, it was the best Valentine's Day I've had in a long time. Ryan is such a wonderful guy and treats me so well. I'm so grateful to have found a nice man who puts forth such an effort. *fingers crossed* for many more months of fun together.

Sounds like a good Valentines day! We went to Mimis for breakfast. It was yummy and we beat the rush.
