A "frenchy" Valentine's Day

During our long marriage (o.k, not that long- only 7 years), Hubby and I have
had the opportunity to spend Valentine's day in some wonderful places.
Can you tell from the photo above that I am collecting ephemera
for the grans? They will have quite the collection someday.

A few years ago we were in the South of France for that special day.

The hotel was a favorite of mine from the "old" days.
One of the restaurants in the hotel was having a special ROMANTIQUE
dinner. It sounded like it would be spectacular. We decided to
find a small, local place. It was the right decision.

We were able to celebrate with some French families.
This was a highlight for both of us.

Today finds us at home, and that is just fine with me.
However, just to keep the "French is a state of mind" thing going,
I have some treats for you.

French goodies from LADUREE.
Their site is magical. A must visit.

Of course, our own Julia, has French goodies as well.
She is the real deal and so talented!

I couldn't let this day go by without telling you that I love all of you.
Tell someone you love them today. It could be a friend, your dog, yourself.
Those words have power.

Have a love filled day!

That was a fun post, Barb.
You've had some lovely Valentine's Days, from the sound of it - and today will be no exception.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your hubs too! Wow to be in France for Valentine's Day. We had a glimpse of it at the French restaurant we went to last night complete with a violinist who played divinely and the gentleman who accompanied her on guitar! Beautiful! We had champagne too! Yum! Hope you have a wonderful evening!!!
