I just realized that I was so caught up in the snow storm that I never talked about Valentine’s Day at Chez Carol. The day itself was obviously low-key. I gave the boys little Dora boxes with yogurt-covered raisins. They were super excited about them because they both adore Dora. Later on, Jake and I made chocolate-covered strawberries. Surprisingly, he didn’t like them! But that just meant more for me (Hey, it’s fruit!).
As I mentioned, Drew was stuck in Westchester, so it was Thursday night when he gave me my gift — a huge box filled with teas from Adagio, including a box of blooming tea and a big, clear tea cup so I can really watch it unfold! Needless to say, I was very surprised and excited. He chose two different samplers: the rooibos and the white tea, and he also gave me jasmine tea, and two boxes of gourmet tea bags (green pekoe and English breakfast). Additionally he bought me some scrummy truffles. I just love that he gave me things we can share. We cracked open a bottle of Prosecco and had a nice, quiet evening.
So all said, it was a nice holiday. I’m no Valentine’s scrooge. I think you can have a lot of fun with Valentine’s Day. It’s all what you make of it!
