An Extra Special Day

Good Morning Everyone?
How are you all today, did you all have a wonderful Valentines day?  I hope so!
Despite being 15 hours apart Mark and I made the most out of Valentines day and our Anniversary with sweet cards and a wonderful Face Time Date!  Mark the wonderful boyfriend that he is surprised me by sending me these beautiful flowers.
(Mark let me know that the floral arrangement was called Lily Pulitzer)!
The flowers were such a surprise, and made me feel extra special.  He sure knows how to melt my heart!  I am a lucky girl!

I made my mom our family friend Renotta and I an extra special dinner to celebrate the day.  A creamy risotto studded with shrimp made for a simple yet elegant meal.  Caprese salad and wine rounded out this perfect meal!
I followed a Taste of Home Recipe for Shrimp Risotto with Spinach.  A bit of rosemary and basil were added to the dish which I thought added a nice depth of flavor.  Risotto is one of those dishes that is comforting and delicious all in one!

And for a little sweet treat after dinner, the three of us enjoyed Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee.
Because Valentines day just wouldn't be Valentines Day without a little chocolate!

How did you celebrate Valentines day?  Do anything special?
