Valentine’s Day Date
My husband and I enjoyed a Valentine’s Day Date at a cozy restaurant, with flowers and candlelight. We have been happily married for 33 years, so we celebrated in a traditional, if a bit “Hallmark,” sort of way. But if it makes you happy, who cares?!
I wore a white tulle skirt with a red bouclé jacket shot with a bit of metallic, by Christina Makowsky. A similar design can be see here. The jacket is well-made and has a definite CHANEL kind of vibe. My two-toned spectator pumps have a sweet bow detail by COCCINELLE Official. Always a fan of tulle, I wore it recently in black, and the look is entirely different.
Gold knot earrings added some shine similar to these here. A more affordable version can be seen here. I love the symbol of the knot, tied together in romance, and entwined as one. This was a sentimental choice, too, as they were my mother in law’s.
Take a closer look at the fringe detailed jacket below!
My statement ring is from KCSignatures. It is a fun cluster of sapphires and white topaz. The stones are rose-cut and this details gives this large ring a sightly less formal look. It is one of my favorite dinner rings.
In this modern and fast-paced world, it is good to slow down now and then. It is important to take the time to celebrate a relationship that has lasted and flourished over more than three decades.
A Valentine’s Day date
is like any other date, it is planned in advance and assigned a certain priority. We need to set and access our priorities; it is vital to a healthy, long-term marriage or lasting relationship of any kind.
I received tulips, my favorite flower, and also found two dozen roses in a vase. I love fresh flowers. Two festive balloons sat patiently in my entryway. Emails, texts, and hand-written notes were shared. Chocolate was happily received and gleefully eaten, okay only 3 per day, but they were delish!
Simple romantic gestures transpired, so red and pink in the romantic flourish of them, they seemed almost cliché. They were not, however. In a happy marriage, each and every year, seems new and fresh.
Dinner at the Kings Carriage house is romantic. This townhouse duplex has an old-world feel that transports one to a New England Inn from another century; quite a cool trick in the slick-fast, pixellated pace of Manhattan life.
Here is a cool shot of my ring. It looks even prettier on the vibrant green leaves nestled in the urns that flank our co-op entry. I love blues and greens together !
Below I am having fun outside as the playful wind sends the balloons in a waltz .
Did you Celebrate Valentine’s day? Do you ignore the day, or do you like the idea of Galentine’s Day better? If you do celebrate this day, do you have a Valentine’s Day date in a restaurant or at home, by candlelight? Homemade dinner or food delivered by Seamless? If you have children, do you bring them along?
I hope this week finds you well, warm, content, and vibrant !
