Recap: Valentines Day!

Here are a few pictures from Valentines day. Since Matthew had to work we just did dinner at home but it was so fun to get to cook for him and actually be together!

The menu was:

Champagne (though we ended up saving this...)
Filet Mignon with Peppercorn Cream Sauce
Green Bean Casserole
Garlic and Herb Creamy Potatoes
Berries and Hand-whipped Cream (only because we don't have beaters- thank you whisk)
Mini Chocolate Molten Cakes

It was delicious if I do say so myself, and fun to make!

I also mad some decoration and hung them about- see below. Unfortunately we didn't take pictures when everything was all pretty and set up :)

Matthew brought me some beautiful red roses. We've been wanting some fresh flowers in the fairly dark apartment so it was a fitting gift for this place! The roses were a great bright spot in the place for a week!

He (Matthew) also thoughtfully gave me a card for every day of February until (and including) the 14th. He knows how I love getting cards!

We had a great weekend following V-day and had some fun dates and adventures. What a sweet man I married! It was great to be with you! Thank too to the friends and family who sent us cards in the mail- we felt loved! :)
