Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

It is a day dedicated to love and living in a planet that needs so much love we need to remember to pass on love to others. Give your loved ones a big hug and your attention and that is a great gift.

We plan on having such a cozy supper. I promised myself to polish and paint my nails red. He likes things kept simple. Chicken soup, The Pioneer woman has this recipe that we both love and I have made several times and instead of using a whole chicken I use chicken breasts cut up. Chocolate cupcakes. I know I do a terrible job decorating but hey it tastes good. We do plan in going to a restaurant for dinner Sunday in early afternoon for a proper celebration. Sorry for the quality of these photos. It's always so dark around here in the Winter.
Not sure if to make him a card using these little accordion hearts and ribbons which I have a few or just give him the "Monet" card. I think it is good when you create your own card. It's more personal and meaningful. It is just the two of us here and no children so we must make an effort to be romantic this Valentine's Day. I do wish you a wonderful Valentine's Day!!!



  1. Beautiful post! Happy Valentine's Day to you both!

  2. Very sweet! Happy Valentine's Day to you and your honey!

  3. This looks like a lovely celebration. The Monet card is appropriate for a Valentine, I think. But making your own card is really nice, too. My dinner tonight was chicken soup, and it looked very much like yours. Enjoy Valentine's Day with your beloved!

  4. Lovely post and a lovely blog! Best wishes for a beatiful Valentine´s Day...
