My Sweet Valentine

My husband, Michael, really out did himself this Valentine's Day! Friday after work I came home to a beautiful arrangement of lilies and a nice bottle of red wine. He explained that he got me lilies instead of roses because everyone gets roses, but I was special to him so he wanted to get me a special flower. Plus, I really love lilies! They are beautiful and smell so wonderful!

On Sunday, we went to lunch at a new restaurant in Athens called Red's. It was absolutely delicious. We even had some lunch time entertainment. The couple seated at the next table appeared to be on their first date. The guy was so pompous, and he talked (loudly) the entire time. We felt so sorry for his date, but we couldn't help but make fun of him after they left.

After brunch, Michael surprised me with another present. He gave me a beautiful pearl and diamond ring. I told you my Valentine really went overboard this year!


My gift to Michael couldn't touch the sweet gifts he gave me, but I did surprise him with reservations to Woodfire Grill. He has been wanting to eat there since we watched the chef and co-owner of the restaurant, Kevin Gillespie, compete on Top Chef! I couldn't get reservations for actual Valentine's Day, but we are headed to Atlanta in a few weekends for a fun day and a yummy dinner!

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day too! I can't wait to read all about it!!!

Beautiful ring! We went to Woodfire Grill last Fall and loved it! My recommedation is to order the chef's tasting menu. You won't know what you get, but it was all delicious and it was such fun having the chef create something for us from the best ingredients he had. Yum-O!
