st. valentine brought us lots of sweet things...

2.15.2011























dessert after lunch. a chocolate before the ballet. and chocolate cake after the ballet.
sweet indeed. my fave was having ceej home for lunch so we could surprise each
other with little gifts and notes. i especially love my surprise from ceej of pretty
potted flowers...i get to keep those as long as i'm a good little steward, and they
can sit on the new desk that ceej is currently constructing for me.

this year, i bought the sweet treats...i am trying to hold on to as many small moments
of nothingness as i can. we are busy, and i need time to sit and let my mind wander as
i stare out the window, walk around the block, or listen to violins or the piano call to me.
so, down to our fave bakery i went and took home two treats, because choosing one was
impossible. cookies and cake. and both were delicious. both were rich. but my tummy
handled it all quite nicely. thank you, dear tummy, for making my sweet valentine's
that much more enjoyable.


...photos of the ballet coming tomorrow...

Honestly, my first reaction was "I have the same glasses." I was really craving some sugar cookies yesterday but I settled for chocolate. I think it's time I made sugar cookies again. So glad you had such a beautifully wonderful day with the ballet and all these sweets...

that little chocolate cake looks so delish. I am planning my Sunday menu and I so want to make a simple chocolate cake. This must be a sign!

Beautiful treats and photographs. I love to indulge on special days...one year when I was in middle school, I ate so many sweets that I was sick for a week! Well. I'm not sure if the two were correlated, but they certainly seemed to be.
