Unexpected Surprise

It has been spring like here in New England for weeks. I'd pretty much given up having any resemblance of winter this year. That all changed in a mere few hours.

This is what we woke up to this morning ...

It's amazing what you can get accomplished with an extra 90 minutes in the morning. 

 * make cookies 
 * clean out the frig 
 * laundry * chat with a friend 
 * prep for dinner 

 The best part of this delay .....  It's FRIDAY!

Valentine's Day 017

When I found this idea a few months ago, I knew right away that I wanted to do this for my Valentine's gift to my classroom children. It was perfect for our "teammate" approach this year. The friendship bracelets were a huge hit! All the children were so excited to choose their colors and put them on! Due to the excitement level, I plan to make them again next year. 

*I made 27 of these sweet little things and it took me almost an entire day over the weekend. This did not include the time it took to make the cards and assemble them.  Next time, I'll pace myself and begin early!

My Sweet Valentine

Valentine's Day 004

This is one my favorite days of the whole year!

It has nothing to do with chocolates or flowers {not that I don't love getting them} that are a highlight of the special day.

On this special day, I'm given one of the greatest gifts ... a home cooked meal by my husband.

This is true love!

He creates a fabulous menu, shops for all the ingredients, cooks, and cleans the entire kitchen {this is a gift in and of itself!} while I sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the show.

Valentine's Day 028

Valentine's Day 037

Our menu ~

Porterhouse steak with green peppercorn, garlic, and sun dried tomato butter

Lobster tails

Goat cheese mashed potatoes

Fresh green beans

Spinach salad with strawberries and a homemade vinaigrette

Valentine's Day 034

How can you not love a man who turns your strawberries into hearts?!

For dessert {as if dinner wasn't enough} we had Ina's brownie pudding with salted caramel gellato ... yum!

Valentine's Day 041

It was all amazing.

I'm a very lucky lady to have such a sweet hubby!

The greatest gifts are given from the heart ~ these are the ones that are priceless and will last a life time!
