Valentine's Day

It's one of those things you can't help but get sucked into despite the shameless marketing ploy that it is. But the way we think about it is that it's the day where we have to make an effort to relax and have a nice dinner, no matter how busy we are.

Valentine's Day BreakfastThis year Matt surprised me with breakfast pancakes with jam and cream, and bought me this gorgeous green vase with a red rose. I had a similar idea, and bought a big square vase (we both like the modern square stuff) and filled it with red things like strawberry tea, Cherry Ripe bars, strawberry lollies, and berry Tim Tams.

Valentine's DayAfter dinner we went to our favourite Chinese restaurant, which is usually very quiet, but was uncharacteristically filled to the brim with Valentine's Day restaurant goers. It was nice and romantic, despite having to scream at each other to hear anything.

We ended the night with strawberry tea on our swing, with the fairy lights on (awww). Hope everyone had a great Valentine's day!
