Valentine's Day as a Mr. & Mrs.

Happy Wednesday, lovely ladies! Are you still reeling from the romance of Valentine's Day or on a sugar high from all those chocolates and candies? Me too! Husband and I had an absolutely perfect first married Valentine's Day. Let's reminisce...
When I arrived home from work, Husband was waiting with the fire lit, champagne in two glasses, our favorite songs playing, and my presents wrapped behind him. What a sweetie, oui? We danced around the room, toasted to our first Valentine's Day, and then the present-opening began. I received a gorgeous pair of pearl earrings to match the double strand necklace he had given me, gold ballet flats, and a pair of riding boots to wear in Ireland (next week, next week!!!). I had made a scavenger hunt for him with clues of where his presents were hidden in the house, and he had such fun finding and unwrapping his red-themed gifts (linen Nantucket red pants, red polo, red tee, and some chocolate wine as a sweet treat).

Before we knew it, it was time to leave the house as Husband whisked me away to a romantic dinner. Sadly, I did not take one single photo to share, but I will remember our first married Valentine's Day forever. What did all of you do to celebrate? I would love to hear!

XOXO
