Chef's Table + Anthology of Love + Tracie = Best Valentine's EVER!

Formerly known as: "Valentine's Day 2008: Or, Celebrating Valentine's on February 14 is for suckers, or people who won't be flying to Texas that day!"

But I didn't want to imply any of you are suckers, plus, the new title makes the post irrelevant, which is the best kind of post to write!

So, as I've said, written, and shouted from rooftops, (not very safe in this weather, but I can't help it) we're going to TEXAS! tomorrow.

Well, this Valantine's Day (I looked it up. That's the correct spelling) my beautiful wife Tracie and I celebrated it early. Last Saturday, to be exact. We first went out to eat at Chef's Table, one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. Tracie had pork, I had duck. Though dinner was expensive, we had a beggar's purse for dessert (I guess the beggar didn't need it). One of the most expensive meals I've ever had. But also one of the best. If you haven't gone, you must. If you have, go again. SO GOOD!

We then went to the new Covey Center for The Arts to see a performance called "Anthology of Love" which was 6 short plays about different kinds and stages of love.

This being Utah, the plays were pretty tame. The most "forbidden" love was the love between two step-siblings. The other plays dealt with death, proposal (a very well done short scene by Chekhov), and an interesting play about Jacob and Leah's relationship from the Bible. It was fun to go see some plays rather than a movie. And that was our Valentine's Day!

Now, without getting too mushy, (it's for Valantine's, so there's no such thing as too mushy) I'd like to tell Tracie how much I love her. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Much! About there, anyway. A friend of mine teased me earlier today on how much and often I tell Tracie I love her. He said "You're still together! We know you love her!" But I'm not saying it for them. I'm saying it because every time I think of her and talk to her, I realize I love her more and more. Not so much that I keep falling in love, but I keep falling deeper and deeper into the stuff. I never knew someone so fantastic, clever, patient, beautiful, talented, humble, righteous, sexy, smart, funny, cute etc. existed. When I found out, I married her.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S TO ALL!
The magnificent Tracie and the lucky goofball she married.
Happy Valentine's, Princess!
