Even though I have a few other posts that need to be finished, I thought I should share a few shots from our Valentine’s Day first. It’s all about priorities, people.
Dominic has been working super cray cray hours these past few weeks (he’s opening a new restaurant location for the company he works for) and we haven’t been able to spend much time with him. In fact, we didn’t even know if we’d get to see him on Valentine’s Day. Turns out we were able to spend the entire morning with him and Olivia and I were obviously in heaven ;)
Both Dominic and Olivia woke up to little Valentine surprises. Dominic had two love letters waiting for him and Olivia had a little tote filled with a few little things including a new sticker book, crayons, chocolates and a new plate and bowl in honor of the romantic holiday.
Once we were all awake and ready to get out of bed, we headed downstairs and I started to make breakfast. Dominic went on a coffee run while I made the heart shaped pancakes. Before he walked out the door, Olivia said, “Dada! Please don’t forget to get coffee for my bunny!” When he came back, he had surprises for each of us: tulips, chocolates and of course the coffee. Which, let’s be real, would’ve been good enough all on it’s own. Oh and Olivia was over the moon because he actually remembered to bring back coffee for her and her bunny.
I put out a giant spread of breakfast and sweets and we lounged around the table for what felt like forever and it was so nice. I can’t even remember the last time we did that because it’s just been so busy around these parts.
The rest of the day we kinda of just lounged around until Dominic had to go to work, which was sad because we were having such a nice morning/afternoon.
As much as I would’ve loved to have my husband home all day on Valentine’s Day, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t super excited for the evening without him. A couple of my girlfriends and I decided to have a Galentine’s Day party and it was so fun.
We ordered pizza, bought snacks and wine, set the table really cute and it was seriously such a nice night that I really hope the tradition sticks. Since it was so last minute, only a few of us were able to get together but we’re hoping next year all six of us will be able to get together :)
And a selfie to end this post of the right way, naturally.
How was your Valentine’s Day?
