Valentine's Day Redux

My husband who is usually the sweetest and most thoughtful man, forgot Valentine's Day last year, and me, being the hopeless romantic that I am, had a hard time letting him live down that he forgot to get me a card.

Blame my ideas of Valentine's Day on my horoscope, I'm a dreamy Pisces, or the fact that I may be guilty of growing up on one too many romantic comedies.  Although I believe in cherishing those you love everyday, I don't mind an in your face holiday that gives you an excuse to celebrate love.

This year, our night started with a huge surprise.  I usually suggest we forego gifts in favor of taking our yearly international vacations...but my husband didn't listen this time.  He knew I had been eyeing purses with a cross body strap, but I wasn't expecting something this over the top.  Whenever you see this box, it can cause some excitement!

This welcome surprise was followed by a dinner at one of our new favorite restaurants, where we savored spinach and cheese empanadas and mouth watering pan seared dumplings...

And finished off with a delicious dessert hand delivered by our adorable niece and nephew (who are 19 months) ...aka my sister-in-law.


I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day celebrating with the one's you love whether it be friends, family, significant other, or with an indulgence for yourself!
