Every year Joe gives me one red rose. And each year it is different. One year he gave me a four-foot high rose. Another it was in a planter. A third year the rose was in a vase being held by a teddy bear. This year he got me a beautiful red rose with a little teddy bear attached.
It smells wonderful! So fragrant. I opened it up to put it in water and... it's made of red velvet. Red velvet! It is so real looking and smells exactly like a rose. I have it in a vase near the stairway in the living room where I can look at it and it is scenting the room.
And instead of candy he got me a package of chocolate chip shortbread. My two favorite cookies combined. They are wonderful.
Tonight I made a wonderful dinner for us: lamb chops, asparagus and fingerling potatoes.
For dessert I made a heart shaped strawberry cake with lemon glaze.
Everything was so good. I'm glad we finally got to celebrate our Valentine's Day. It was really nice even if it was a little late.
