Valentines at Home

We haven’t established too many holiday traditions since we’ve been together, we always just assumed that traditions would start when we had kids. But Valentine’s Day is different. Every year on Valentine’s Day Andy plans a fancy dinner and buys the ingredients to make it and then we have a fun time cooking it together and sitting down to candlelight to enjoy it. After dinner we usually lounge on the couch and watch a movie. It’s always one of my most favorite nights of the year. Cooking as a couple is always so much fun for us.

This year Andy’s menu consisted of Chicken Madeira, Butternut Squash Risotto and Asparagus. Chicken Madeira is one of my favorite things and I always order it at restaurants if they have it so I was pretty excited. Everything turned out great and we ended up having a fantastic Valentine’s Day!

Andy even sent me flowers to work and picked up some White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies- my favorite! He’s quite a catch and I’m sure glad he picked me.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day too! Sending lots of love your way.

Countdown to the Day of Love!

Tomorrow marks one month until Valentine’s Day! Yes, I am one of those people who buys into all the hype of the holiday. We never do anything outrageous but I’m already starting to think of ideas to make it extra special for my man this year. After all, it will be our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple! I’m thinking of surprising him with a weekend getaway. Work has been rough on him lately and I think a vacation is much needed, even if it is just a few days. Now I just have to decide where!
