Hubby and I share a double whammy on Valentine’s Day. It’s the day we got married. Romantic, we are, till the end. We’ve been together for thirty-eight (38) years now. It’s astounding how time just flies by and you don’t even realize it. But here we are.

Hubby and I rarely do anything extraordinary on either our Anniversary or Valentine’s Day. I do like, however, to get flowers and a box of chocolates. And I’d like a nice meal. Not necessarily out to a restaurant. This year, and lately since my renewal in all things frugal, I wanted to keep our celebration low-cost as well.

A dozen roses, this year, can cost upwards of $35 a dozen. Aldi (of course) had a special: one dozen red roses for only $9.99. Instead of any rose, I opted for a bouquet of daisies, from Aldi, for only $3.99. I think any flower, in the dead of a cold, brutal winter, looks lovely and makes one feel good. The daisies didn’t disappoint:

At only $1.99 a bar, I was very happy to get these two dark chocolate and almond bars as a Valentine’s present.
Home-made, old-fashioned Italian meatballs and spaghetti, topped off with a red wine spritzer (keeps the wine costs down) makes a perfect Valentine’s Day combo for me!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers out there. Know that I love you and thank you for your continued support! Without you, this blog wouldn’t be possible. Thanks for reading! Love you!
