Feeling loved

I had such a wonderful Valentine's Day and hope everyone else did too. I received a beautiful bouquet of pale orange/pink roses, candy, and a purple orchid plant. Prince Charming and I enjoyed a nice, quiet dinner together by candlelight. I cooked a very good dinner of filet mignon, shrimp scampi, and grilled asparagus. I found the sweetest chocolate covered fortune cookies that were on each plate for a tease of desert to come. That, was the best Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes with fresh raspberry sauce, whipped cream, and topped with fresh raspberries. To die for ymmy if I do say so, and ohhhh I do. We even used the "good" china, real napkins, lace tablecloth, the whole nine yards. Was delicious, romantic, and relaxing to enjoy good quality time with the hubby.
I can't for the life of me figure out why we wait for holidays to do this kind of thing. It really needs to be a part of weekly life to just slow down and savor the moment. The menu is irrelevant and could be canned soup or take out burgers. Just take the time to sit and enjoy some great company with the ones you love. Why does daily life have to get in the way of happiness and bliss? No excuse, just putting priorities in the wrong place for sure.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful day spent with some quiet time to feel loved!

Your meal sounds devine! We had shrimp scampi for Valentines day to! We tend to eat on the couch watching TV, but we were just talking about how much nicer it is to sit at the table and actually talk!
