Every year for the past four years, Jay and I have made each other gifts for under $10 for Valentine's(see 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). To me, a well thought-out gift that doesn't cost a lot of money is the best gift, and means more to me than any expensive materialism, and I have a feeling Jay loves it too. ;) So for this year, I told Jay last month that we should keep our gifts handmade and under $10 and he agreed. But guess what.... he had another plan on his mind!
He surprised me with an early Valentine's gift. After spending v-day with him, I get to fly solo to N.Y for 5 days while he uses his vacation days to watch the kids. He also gave me a shopcard to use to go shopping in N.Y! I will first go to Rochester for 2 days to visit my brother and his family, and then to New York City for 3 days to visit one of my best friends. I've been wanting to go visit them for the past couple of years but never initiated it to make it happen and Jay's so sweet to remember and actually make it happen. He talked to them beforehand without me knowing to set the best date for me to visit them and everything! I'm so excited!!!
If you know of any awesome places to visit or to eat, please let me know! So far, I want to go to Moods fabric store, and see the Statue of Liberty, but that's all I have on my list right now.
