Valentine's Round Two

Time is a funny thing. In some ways, it feels like we were just celebrating our first Valentine's Day 
together as a married couple, and in other ways it seems like that was ages ago. 
Either way, this second Valentines was wonderful.

We started out with a breakfast of heart-shaped waffles. I love this little waffle iron, and even though 
we usually prefer Belgian waffles, I get this cutie out once a year for a fun treat. 

Then I kicked Brad out for a bit so that I could make him a surprise.

I had so much fun making him a red velvet cake and dipping some strawberries.
Recipe is going up tomorrow, so come back and check it out!

Brad came home with these lovelies, a washed and vacuumed car, and grapes 
(I've been craving them but haven't wanted to spend the money on them. My Valentine knows what I want).
Random fact about me: I don't like just roses. I like a bouquet with a variety,
plus I feel like roses die a lot faster than other flowers. These were perfect. 

Then we were off to a late lunch. We started that tradition last year and we love it. 
We avoid the crowds and can enjoy a nice meal without feeling rushed.
This year took us to Gloria's Little Italy.
We really loved it and would recommend it to others for a nice meal.
Brad had the Gnocchis which I am VERY picky about because I ate them in Argentina, 
but these did not disappoint. They tasted just like a Gnocchi is supposed to.
I went with the Butternut Squash Ravioli with Italian Sausage.
So yummy.
While these were both delicious, the sauces were extremely rich 
and we both only got through about a fourth of our meal. Hooray for leftovers!

After lunch, we were able to attend the Temple together, something that is always very special.
We came out to a beautiful view

In all, it was a perfect day.
I am so grateful for my eternal Valentine.


  1. Sounds like a perfect Vday! Great tip to go for late lunch instead of early dinner. And I agree, roses die so fast, it's kinda depressing. Also, if I get roses I want them to actually smell like roses, and most of the store bought ones don't have a scent. Love that dress! Perfect maternity Valentine option :)

    1. Thank you Nina for such kind words. That dress is so comfy during pregnancy.
