Schroeder Family Valentines Day Tradition

Many years ago, shortly after my daughter was born, we started a tradition for Valentines Day. I can't remember how it all started that well but I think we had just moved into a new place (well it was new for us but a really run down old rent house). Everything was in boxes and we weren't prepared to cook so I picked up a couple of orders of spaghetti and meatballs from a local restaurant and we had a picnic on the living room floor. So, for years since then our Valentine's Day doesn't involve chocolate or roses but always includes a family picnic on the floor with spaghetti. Well... gotta go get to work on dinner!

What I like most about valentine's day is the fact that tiny steaks and lobster tails are on sale at the grocery store the following day.

All kidding aside, it was the day I met my husband 7 years ago.

God had consistently told me I'd meet him when I least expected it, and boy did I ever least expect it on that particular day!

Before then, it wasn't anything to me.
