Happy Valentine's Day!

I just got back from a fab dinner that mister indiana planned for me - every year, he tries to suprise me with a restuarant we've never been to. This place, Truffles, had an amazing 4 course meal. I had fried goat cheese with crostini, a cesear salad, a filet with mushroom duxelle and haircot verts, and coconut sorbert, and he had summer squash toretillini, spinach rosoto, the filet, and a devil's food cupcake. Wonderful food (we're wannabe-foodies, and Top Chef junkies, so anytime I can pretend to be Padma makes for a good evening!) We didn't do major presents this year, but will get wedding bands with "that money" instead - I'll share pictures when they arrive in the next week or so.

I want to share a reading with you all, one that has a special meaning for us, and that I hope you enjoy.

At night, there was the feeling that we had come home, feeling no longer alone, waking in the night to find the other one there, and not gone away; all other things were unreal. We slept when we were tired and if we woke the other one woke too so one was not alone. Often a man wishes to be alone and a woman wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other, but I can truly say we never felt that. We could feel alone when we were together, alone against the others. We were never lonely and never afraid when we were together.

Hope you all have a great v-day!
