I didn't post yesterday because I was wrapped up in love with my hubby. Our day was extra special all the way around.
I got up early and made hubby's favorite scones--something I haven't made in a while because they're fattening. Nevertheless, I thought he should have something special to start his day.
Before dinner, we did our exchange of presents. He'd already given me a bouquet of flowers two days earlier. Bob is the epitome of a true romantic and I'm the luckiest woman on the face of the planet. We read cards first which always make us cry--we're mushy to the core, but even though we express these in words and actions every day of the week, somehow Valentine's Day makes it all the more special.
I opened my present and there was a vase with a silk flower glued inside. I was a little puzzled until he flipped the switch and the bud slowly opened up to a full bloom with a note inside that said, "Love you Lots!" I'll be posting a video on FB in a while so you can see it. Of course, I was like a little kid receiving her first gift--just the sweetest gift.
I gave him chocolate covered cherries and a bottle of Harvey's Bristol Cream.
After our lobster dinner, we headed for the movie theater to see The Vow and it's an incredible movie! The love is so intense, you feel every heartbeat the characters feel. I highly recommend seeing it with someone you love. On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the best, this film gets an 11. And something I didn't know until the film ended, this story was based on a true story.
Hope you had a wonderful day too!
