I wanted to surprise him, so I had to do a lot of secret behind the scenes preparation. This involved finding a place for all four “children” to go, two who are human and two who are canine. And then, deciding where to take him…This is where we ended up
Citrus Marinated Shrimp
Wild Mushroom Risotto
Artisan Bread with Olive Oil
Champagne (of course)
and Maple and Pecan Baked French Toast
(for dinner, dessert, wine, champagne and breakfast!) but really it was……priceless!
Now it’s Vanessa’s turn to confess…
just so I could get the best light for the photo.
And then I entered the A.B. time period.
And had to live with the shame.
Not decorating for Valentine’s Day in Blogland makes me feel like I should go around wearing a Scarlet V on my shirt.
So this year, I tried. Only a little bit, mind you.
But maybe, just maybe, I will be able to break free from the shame and rip that Scarlet V right off…or even just half of it!
My daughter helped me pick out something for our front door.
And she tucks little things like this around her home.
