Happy almost Valentine's Day! Like most people, I have a love-hate relationship with this made-up holiday.
My husband and I started officially dating February 15th, which is now 10 years to the day as I'm writing this. I gave him spicy tuna to try as his first sushi experience and it failed miserably. And here we are, our first married Valentine's Day.
