Love me do
Valentine's day did not disappoint this year - or rather Jeremy didn't disappoint. He sometimes struggles because he married a girl who grew up with Disney happy-ever-after movies and had decades of girl's nights watching chick flicks in which every man knows how to share his feelings and sweep the girl off her feet. That's a lot to live up to for any man but especially when you are a guy who genuinely enjoys numbers, like my sweet husband.
This year however, he did a wonderful job at making Valentine's Day special with red roses and a card. I am a lucky girl. He also made reservations at a restaurant we went to once a year or so ago and really enjoyed. He kept the destination a secret until we pulled up outside! We enjoyed a delicious meal, listening to the pianist (and playing a little game of 'name that tune'), candle light, roses on every table, delicious food - especially the chocolate lasagna for dessert.
The picture was taken by the owner of the restaurant and was emailed to me this morning - the first email had a picture of a lovely couple in their sixties! She went table to table taking pictures and getting emails and I wondered at the time how she would keep everyone straight! It made us laugh. I hope we are still going to romantic dinners when we are their age.
Hope your love day celebrations were special too x
