Happy Valentine's to Me!
I sat for two hours tonight with my gorgeous husband and ate. Did you read that right? We ATE for two hours. We ate at such a lesiurely pace that we saw two sets of people come and go at most of the tables around us. It was such a lovely meal (soup, salad, bread, steak, potato, veggies, chocolate cake, chocolate covered strawberries, coffee...yum!) and such a lovely atmostphere (candles, music, flowers, etc.) and such easy conversation that it felt almost wrong not to milk it for all it was worth. Our kids were being watched...no, scratch that...they were being brillantly entertained and cared for by some of our dear friends. They were having the time of their lives at a Valentine party, princess style, just for them. What a gift that was! If you have children then you know what a gift it was. To eat a meal like that, in a place like that, with the love of your life, without interruption...well, it was more than a little delightful. It was bliss! Thanks Paul and Debbie! We owe you big!
