{Happy Valentine's Day!}

Monday, February 14, 2011

Mr. Loerke and I had a fun time celebrating Valentine's Day this weekend. I received a homemade Valentine, a vintage flash card with my favorite nickname on it, and a wooden envelope making template from We Are 1976. Looks like someone was taking notes on my recent tutorial!


I gave Tim a chocolate bar the size of his head, some Cardamom Guinness Beer Soap, and this book. Pretty sure he liked the chocolate the best.


After opening gifts we stuffed our bocas with wine & cheese, grilled shhhteaks, mascarpone mashed potatoes, and roasted green beans. Nom nom nom ...


Btw, does anyone else love Manchego and Cotswold cheese as much as we do? We can't get enough!


For dessert I made a Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Pie. It was melt in your mouth delicious even though it was so rich it made made our teeth hurt. I'll definitely be making this AWESOMENESS again soon!

Tonight we're hanging out with our dear friend's David & Julia. Perhaps their two year old Little will show us a thing or two about fort building. Whatever your plans are for Valentine's Day, we hope you feel known and loved!

XOXO
