I've been off colour for a few days, and feeling blue... but I'm not complaining, as things are definitely looking more rosy today... This evening my husband and I strolled down to the river together for a picnic under the paperbarks to celebrate Valentines Day. We don't go out just the two of us very often at all, so it's nice to make the effort once in a while, no?
As well, last Friday we went to a BIG party where some good friends celebrated their silver wedding anniversary, so it really feels lately like romantic celebrations are in the air...! I wore my Sandwich Bag dress and it was the perfect dress for partay-ing in a sweltering summer evening.
But for today, what could say romance more softly and prettily than pink? so I dug out the most romantic pink dress I own and put some pink champagne in the fridge to chill. And after yet another oppressively hot day like today, it was enough to just chuck some chook on the barbie, chop it up into a green salad, chased down with a few dark chocolate truffles for afters... a simply lovely feast!
Wishing everyone an equally gorgeous Valentine's Day evening ...
