On Friday, L and I went to celebrate our own Valentine’s Day at Lawry’s in Ebisu. We had prime rib and feasted like kings. I wasn’t feeling too good so had to force him to drink most of the bottle of wine we ordered…oops. But overall we had a lovely time. Almost 3 years together and can you believe I’m not sick of him yet? Ha. He is lovely – there is nobody who can make me laugh like him, and make me feel better when I’m not feeling 100%. Nobody I’d rather go on adventures with or even sit around at home doing my taxes with 😉
We also celebrated Valentine’s at the preschool and I made gift bags for my babies with some chocolates and these adorable gift bags I picked up at Loft (post about this amazing store coming soon). I added names using some alphas from Studio Calico – my kids loved them. I think they turned out great!
Valentine’s is my precious grandma’s birthday and this year was her 90th birthday!! So happy we got to spend it with her. She just moved into a nursing home in January so this was her second outing and she was so happy. We took her to a delicious Japanese restaurant then had cake at her home. I love seeing how happy she is when all her kids are together. Her oldest, my uncle, is visiting from the States so she must have been SO delighted.
I know I’ve been so behind on this blog – so many exciting posts I haven’t gotten around to. This year has started full throttle with the school in panic mode: I’m losing 2 pre-schoolers who will be starting Japanese kindergarten in April and a big school fair we will be participating in next week. That + all the events happening in February have been weighing on me. I know no one likes to read excuses. So I will leave you with the promise of posts and wishes for a great Valentine’s Day filled with love and happiness.
