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!
