What is a Valentine's Day without a few of your favorite things to make sure you feel loved? It was a lovely weekend (except for the frigid weather) and it is always a little more special when the holiday falls on a Saturday. My husband walked in a door on Friday with my favorite yellow roses and that gave the weekend a great start. He always remembers that I prefer yellow roses and makes and effort to find them for me, when red roses are much easier to buy on Valentine's Day. My gift to him was simple, but what he loves; a box of his favorite, homemade chocolate chip cookies. We like to keep Valentines's Day simple and sweet.
Saturday morning we braved the snowstorm, blowing through and went to our favorite breakfast spot. Because of the weather, it wasn't as crowded as I expected and we were able to linger quite awhile over coffee. I try to change up my order, but always end up going back to my favorite; blueberry pancakes. I would rather go out to breakfast than lunch or dinner, so it was a perfect Valentine's Day for me.
