A few years back, Nile and I started a Valentine's Day tradition. Nile really loved Indian food, and he was just starting to introduce me to it. We happened to live near this Indian restaurant that no one ever went to...it was in a strip mall, dark windows. Not the kind of place you would drive by and would catch your eye.
Nile convinced me that it would be a great place, so I indulged him and went. When we walked in, we were the only two people there! Needless to say, I wanted to walk out, but before I could the host came and gave me a red carnation, sat us down and proceeded to give us the best service I've had at a restaurant. The food was great, and we had a great time....and from there our Valentine's Day tradition of Indian food was born.
Today, we're venturing to find a place in Maryland that we like. There aren't many around here, but I'm sure we'll find something.
In honor of Valentine's Day, here's some pictures of Nile and I throughout our relationship:
