Sooooo . . . . this post was supposed to go up on the 14th. At least it is still February. Ahem.
My anniversary was on February 17th. We’ve been married for seven years. Since Valentine’s Day was on a Friday we decided to have our celebration then. We started with some lovely coffee and treats.
We don’t usually do a big thing for either but since it was a weekend and I’d been making Valentines recently I was kind of in the mood.
I love how Louie’s Valentine turned out. It is HUGE. That box is one of those photo boxes from the craft store.
I also made one of those “52 Things I Love About You” card books that are all over Pinterest. Want some wine with that cheese? Hmm? I made a lot of them funny (like his terrible Sean Connery impersonation) so we had a good time reading through them.
Also seen on Pinterest were these little card men. So cute. The one in the back was made with a mini deck and I like him better than the full size. I will hang them on my Christmas tree going forward.
And what is a celebration without bubbly? We enjoyed cava with Creme Yvette. It was yummy and also pink so win-win. I made the chocolate dipped strawberries. I always forget how simple they are to make. I use one of those mini crock pots to melt the chocolate chips which makes it even easier. Chocolate covered strawberries for every event, yeah!
So it was a lovely (though cold) weekend and a total blast to feel fancy and decadent. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner at our fave Italian place (only a short 3 block walk) and perhaps a few more glasses of bubbly.
