“Now in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter, I know the meaning of the words ‘ever after…'” ~Frank Sinatra (Polka Dots and Moonbeams)
A week of Valentine’s Treats-Day 5
We have so much fun decorating our house and doing special Valentine’s Day crafts every year, and this year I’ve had a great time sharing my ideas with you. I thought it might be interesting to see how you all celebrate! Is it the same every year or do you change it up?
Ever since Andie and Gracie were little we’ve started our Valentine’s Day by turning our living room into a place to lounge and relax all day. We put our goose down feather bed on the floor along with every pillow an mooshy blanket it the house. Jeff, Andie, Gracie and I (and this year, Maddie too!) get dressed in our most comfy pajamas and just snuggle in for the day. We watch movies, play video games and board games, and munch fun food. The only goal is to have fun. 🙂
Later in the day, Jeff and I will prepare a romantic dinner while sipping pink champagne. Sometimes the kids join us, and other times it’s just been the two of us. In the past we’ve made Jeff’s famous Chicken Marsala, my spaghetti, surf and turf, lemon chicken, Steak au Poivre & Potatoes Anna, and Duck L’Orange. This year we’re going to try Julia Child’s recipe for Poulet au Porto. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
