Valentine's Day has never been one that I place high expectations on. I don't want gifts. I don't want overpriced flowers, nor do I want to go out to a crowded restaurant. I just want to spend quality time with my husband at home. In the past, Bry has made me elaborate dinners, but this year our busy schedules changed the tradition.
This was my favorite Valentine's Day to date because it was so romantic and relaxing! Bryan left me hand written love notes all over the house and created his annual V-Day menu. We took out the leaf in our kitchen table to make it tiny. I hung a red sparkly heart from the light fixture, lit a lot of candles and decorated the table festively. We ate by candlelight and it was truly the best Valentine's Day I could have asked for...
I made Lucky Charm Treats because I'm "so lucky to have my husband." Too bad they were gross. Stick to Rice Krispie Treats...
Very cute! Love the quality time at home, and the little notes he left you. Super sweet!ReplyDelete
Relaxing and quiet usually end up being the best! :)ReplyDelete
I love that he makes a menu for you every year...that is so cute and such a fun tradition :)
adorable! I love your life :) And I love your dining room table;those chairs are gorgeous! The special menu is such a perfect touch.ReplyDelete
Dear Bryan- I am coming for dinner.. soon. I will expect a menu printed for me too.ReplyDelete
How sweet! Savor those sweet quiet romantic dinners now..the food slinging and sippy cup flinging dinners we have now are hilarious yet anything from quiet:)ReplyDelete

That is soo freaking cute!ReplyDelete
i just love this!ReplyDelete
Ahhh I love this! So sweet. The lucky charms were gross? Ha! It's the thought that counts ;)ReplyDelete
I have never been big on valentines day. I love to celebrate our love any and everyday throughout the year. Although, a sweet romantic dinner at home sounds lovely. I love that he puts together a menus and all. What a sweetheart.ReplyDelete
Kate, I absolutely love your new blog design! and I'm loving reading all your baby updates :)ReplyDelete
I wanted to let you know about a page I started to hopefully connect all the Charlotte-area bloggers. www.thecharlottesocial.com I hope you'll check it out and link your blog up to the directory!
How cute! We always do Valentine's at home and love it that way, so relaxing! And you two are the most adorable couple ever!ReplyDelete
Haha!! I smiled big at your menu - what a sweet idea :) Big bummer about the Lucky Charm treats not tasting good - regular rice krispies are seriously my downfall, I could eat a whole 13x9 pan by myself in a few hours haha!!ReplyDelete
So romantic and sweet.. just what Valentine's Day is all about :)ReplyDelete
So cute!! :)ReplyDelete
This looks amazing -- how great! Also, loving that you tried to make Lucky Charms treats. I'm bummed that you didn't think they were that good, because they sound absolutely delicious! :/ReplyDelete
How sweet and cozy!! I am not a huge fan of Vday and prefer something low key as well.ReplyDelete
You two are such a beautiful couple. I love the quiet night in... and love that he's your lucky charm :)ReplyDelete
I was so excited when I saw the Lucky Charm treat pic, I thought what a great idea until I kept reading and you said they were gross - haha! Thanks for taste testing!ReplyDelete
Such a sweet Valentines Day! I think your husband needs to give lessons to all of the husbands out there (mine specifically) that doesn't even realize it is Valentines day until the day after :)ReplyDelete
This is adorable. Glad ya'll enjoyed yourselves. :)ReplyDelete
I love that you had a menu, I'm totally stealing that idea! :) I'm bummed to hear the lucky charms treats are a no go, they look so good!ReplyDelete
What a sweet evening together. I love the sweet notes and the menu. Definitely a perfect celebration. :)ReplyDelete
simple Valentine's are the best! and I'm sorry the lucky charm treats were gross - its such a cute idea!ReplyDelete
ya'll are sweet. and it kind of makes me want to gag and cry at the same time. ;)ReplyDelete
Seriously, how cute are YA"LL!!!!ReplyDelete
Love that your hubby did all of this for you on valentine's day! You definitely have a keeper girl!!ReplyDelete
