Valentine’s Day Experience
My favorite Valentine’s Day experience has been with The Man. Our first Valentine’s Day together he made reservations at Fadó’s, an Irish pub in downtown Austin. We stay away from downtown because it is Idiot Drunks City, but he scheduled this and took me. We dressed up and everything. It was cooooold, so I ordered Sheppard’s Pie. It was the first time I’d ever had it. I kept moaning after bites that it was so good. The Man was astounded I had never eaten it before. I had to remind him it’s a Northern thing, not a Southern food.
The Man made me feel really special that Valentine’s Day. I’ve since looked into going back there for dinner, and they have really expanded and added to their menu with more offerings.
Last year he of course sent roses and also gave me this gorgeous pop-up card with a couple sitting on a swing in a huge tree. I adore the card and still have it.
