a lovely evening
i love valentines. i do. and yesterday was pretty great. it was a simple affair, but no less memorable.
the evening started out rushed and stressed, but as soon as the kiddo went to bed and we slowed down, turned on the civil wars and popped open the champagne, everything fell into place. we had an appetizer of olive tapenade with rice crackers. dinner was grilled salmon with roasted brussel sprouts, bartlett pears, shallots, and thyme. and strawberries in balsamic over vanilla coconut milk ice cream with a dark chocolate garnish for dessert. we ended the night with the lights down low, listening to james vincent mcmorrow and bon iver. yep. pretty magical.
i made a 'card' out of paper hearts with lines from my favorite ee cummings poem.
