How wonderful to see your husband walking in the door with roses on Valentine's Day. And, they were my favorite yellow roses too. After all these years, my husband knows it is the little things that make me the happiest. I don't need any extravagance and pretty flowers, especially when remembering my favorite kind, mean more to me than anything.
Instead of going out to dinner on Valentine's night, we spent a quiet evening watching the Olympics. We decided to mark the occasion by going out for breakfast Saturday morning - my favorite thing to do. We dropped my puppy off at the groomers for a much needed haircut and were at my favorite breakfast spot bright and early. I enjoyed my whole wheat blueberry pancakes, with maple butter, as well as the time to linger over coffee, talking and catching up on our week.
To round out my weekend of favorites, I received a surprise package from my mother in law! She sent me more white dishes for my growing collection and I love them. I now have 12 appetizer plates that will be so perfect for entertaining and that I can mix and match effortlessly. It is so nice to receive a surprise and know that someone was thinking of you :-)
