these words were heard just a few (or 32) times throughout our yesterday in ALL the anticipation of our valentine tradition.....a candle lit dinner.
a few small special somethings by each of the girls' plates
along with some handmade decorations AND it's a fancy meal for 4!!
on the menu:
*baked rigatoni with onions & parmesan (delightfully simple & yummy)
*roasted eggplant & asparagus
*sparkling apple juice
*chocolate dipped (or drenched) pears and bananas!!
this has become our "heart day" tradition for a few years now.....the girls LOVE it
and for the parents it's relaxing.....there's something peaceful about eating in the dark with only a few bee's wax tea lights to distinguish faces, utensils, and food!
*yet another reminder of how simple gestures can be SOOOO fancy and exciting in the eyes of a child*
