Tag Archives: Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s weekend began with a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Although my husband knows roses are traditional, he had them add lilies in because they’re my favourite.
Then we spent the chilly weekend at the Cobourg Winter Festival where they had professional ice carvers sculpting gorgeous works of art, ice skating and wagon rides! Typically we don’t make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day but these events were all free and a great way to bring us out of hibernation!
The wagon ride took us around the small and beautiful town of Cobourg.
Where we couldn’t resist stopping at a small sushi restaurant and ordering their delicious vegetarian platter!
And before the day was over we strapped on our skates and did a few laps around the rink!
Although it was incredibly cold, Hubby and I had a ton of fun! It was a perfect and unique way to spend some time together!
This post is going up a few weeks late because unfortunately right after a great Valentine’s Day weekend I came down with the flu!
Hubby and I never make a huge deal out of Valentine’s Day. I think we both know that it’s a holiday created by card companies to make a few extra bucks. That doesn’t mean that I’m not a complete romantic though! Hubby had two dozen of the most beautiful red roses delivered to my work around lunchtime which was a nice surprise! For dinner we always stay in and watch a movie, ordering takeout. This year we ordered from our favourite local vegetarian restaurant – The Jasmine Garden and the meal didn’t disappoint! We got our chocolate fix too, enjoying one of the best slices of vegan chocolate cake ever made! Best of all….leftovers! We enjoyed our meal accompanied by some tasty red wine and a good snuggle on the couch with a romantic movie!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
