The gift every mother gets teary over ...

Roses from her sweet son!
He had them delivered to my school ~ litle does he know that he made my day, week, and month!
I was the talk of the school ~ he impressed the entire staff with his sweet gesture.
I am one lucky mother ... thank you Nicholas!
They mean more to me than you'll ever know.


The gift of relaxation from my husband ...

He poured me a glass of wine and told me to relax while he prepared dinner.
Pure heaven!
I didn't know what to do with myself :)
This is such a TREAT that I now look forward to each year well in advance!



Dinner ...

Grilled romaine salad with blue cheese {SO good!}
Stuffed lobster tail
Porterhouse steak with maitre d' butter

Hope you felt a little love on Valentine's Day!
