Ever since we began dating at 22 and 23 years old, Talon and I have been celebrating Valentine’s Day with homemade pizzas! A local pizza place in Long Beach, CA (where we were living at the time) was selling pizza dough by the ball as part of a February special. Not wanting to go out and fight the crowds at a busy restaurant, we decided renting a movie and making pizzas together sounded fun. Now that we’ve moved to Colorado, we typically purchase the dough, sauce and toppings from Trader Joe’s or our local Safeway. We each make our own personal pizza and then try to shape them into hearts. I know–we’re corny like that. It’s a simple, silly tradition but we love it and even more importantly, we can now include our kids!
This year, we celebrated a little early since Talon will be working late on actual Valentine’s Day.

Just for fun…some pics from our first Valentine’s Day together!
