Friday Favorites



one: circle of friends necklace by bluemoss
two: grey mohair beret from HelloVictory
three: Felted cupcake in vanilla mint from madeinlowell
four: february by LeslieThomson

Knowing full well the reservation hassling that would be involved in going to a nice spot for a bit of supper this past weekend, Andrew made reservations for us last night--our late Valentine's night out. I still have visions of a winter sunset over Lake Monona, my Steak Frites with spicy mustard, and a delicious slice of pear almond tart with blackberries. What a treat!

Have you ever seen the old A&E version of Pride and Prejudice? There's a moment when Mr. Darcy is looking at Elizabeth, in his home at Pemberly, their eyes meet and there's nothing but keen adoration and delight in his gaze. That's the coveted "look." I won't gush, but dessert paled in comparison to Andrew's look last night.

Okay, I gushed.
