Sunday Love

How was your Valentine's Day?

We always have chocolate in our household - so while I do love chocolate - receiving it for Valentine's Day would kinda be too much. So instead...

Mine started off with a Brian-made breakfast...

Some beautiful Hydrangea...

And together we made a lovely meal. An upgrade from your average Fish and Chips. Instead we made Hand Cut French Fries and Lobster Tail slathered with a delicious Shallot Fennel Lemon Butter.

Followed by a quiet night in watching The Time Traveler's Wife. Have you seen it? I cried buckets!

(PS. The winner of the Piggy giveaway is Whimsical Creations. Congrats!)

YUM - the food looks delicious. And so funny, We just watched that movie last night! It was great, although a little different than the book.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sounds like a wonderful Valentine's day! The hydrangea's are beautiful!

Kristin said...

Dionne, your pictures today are so lovely. There's a quiet peacefulness to them always, but today is especially romantic. Maybe it's all the post valentine's day love I'm feeling! Or more likely, it's just that you're an incredibly talented photog who can turn even a simple vignette into a little piece of magic.

Looks like a great Valentine's Day! Better than chocolate!

Agree about Time Travelers Wife, but I had read the book first and liked it so much better. I cried buckets reading the book. Not so much in the movie.
