Hearts, Roses, and Love. Valentine's Day 2013

I am back to blogging again! I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus for a few weeks. I think part of the reason is because I have been watching lots of Downton Abbey. Post soon to come!
I hope y'all had a great Valentine's Day.
 Russell had these beautiful red roses delivered to me. I love roses so much.
I love romantic movies. I am such a sucker for them.
 I ended up watching The Notebook and French Kiss while I did my nails, which took a little trial and error!
 Valentine Nails!
 The colors I used were OPI's "I'm Not Really A Waitress" and Essie "Ballet Slippers".
Russell and I went on a special date last Thursday. We went to Crystal Bridges and had dinner at the "Art of Romance" event. It was so beautiful!
 Our table setting
 Can you say gorgeous?!?
 We were absolutely so excited. Can you tell?
 It was a four course dinner. We took pictures of most of the food, I admit. I couldn't help it.
Our first course was baked feta and gorgonzola cheese with walnuts, figs and honey on toasted baguette. The second course, shown above, was a red leaf salad with rose water vinaigrette, pomegranate seeds, and blood orange slices.
 Third course was filet of beef, seared scallop, lobster claw, and purple brussells sprouts. YUM.
 My favorite? The fourth course! a decadant chocolate box filled with berries and topped with a red rose petal, of course! Perfect to share!
It was so fun to walk around Crystal Bridges, have a memorable dinner, all with the beautiful atmosphere of acoustic guitar playing love songs.
 I decorated our table a little bit before Russell got home. He got me more chocolate of course. He knows what I love!
 Roses from dinner. It was so great to get to take these home! Love!
 I got Russell a half dozen Valentine themed cupcakes from Bliss Cupcakes. He was so happy!
Me and my valentine.
 
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
