For my wife and me, Valentine's Day is a bit of a conundrum. Sure, we want to celebrate-who wouldn't want an excuse for a delicious, romantic meal with their special someone-but at the same time, this holiday falls on a Tuesday and Tuesdays for us are…problematic.
If you're like us-a married couple both working full-time jobs and still trying to have a life outside of work (crazy idea, I know)-weeknights can get packed quickly. While it's easy to romanticize the idea of a Valentine's Day spent exchanging tender glances over a rack of lamb or enjoying soothing all-day couples' massages at a local spa, in reality most weeknights we're lucky to find the time to eat a quick meal together and wash the day's dishes before crashing for the evening. The idea of turning Valentine's Day into a huge production is exhausting for both of us. Who's gonna clean the dishes?
