Ben decided to cook for me this year – and what a festive feast we had! I only snapped a few pictures as to not spoil the evening with excessive camera usage. Dinner consisted of heart shaped chicken parm (who knew Ben could cook this?), pink mashed potatoes (how did he know I was craving them all day?), and asparagus with a sparkling pear beverage (dyed pink, obviously).
We enjoyed a quiet evening in free of all distractions (read: electronics). I’d forgotten how wonderful it can be to just spend time together with no phones, social media, or computers. Oh, and check out that three tiered heart cake he came up with (picture taken mid-frosting).
You know, even with the fabulous Valentine’s these past few years, I think this one was my favorite. And not just because I was STARVING come 6:30 and there was a man with a warm meal for me as I walked in the door (it was so good I think I’m turning 100% of cooking duties over to him). Maybe thats the way love goes … when you think it can’t get better, it does.
