With this note....
So, yesterday we left for Santa Ynez/Santa Barbara for the night (beaches and wine country in Southern California)! We walked around the little streets and in and out of wine tasting rooms and shops in Solvang. It's a little danish-style town where all the wineries have tasting rooms.

hate it, but don't have any others unfortunately!
Oh, and this amazing chandelier with shade that I am wanting to recreate in one of our upstairs rooms!
|Had to take this picture discreetly! ;)|
For Valentine's Day, I thought we were doing our normal thoughtful $20 gifts (since we buy everything large ticket anyway, and that's almost too easy). So, I designed and printed our First Dance song lyrics and decoupaged them to canvases. Todd picked "Georgia on my Mind" as our wedding song because that is what he would text it to me while we were dating long distance. So, while I was busy decoupaging my little heart out....
....Todd was purchasing these .75 carat princess cut diamond earrings to match my ring!
I'm starting to get the trend here. For our anniversary, I made Todd something out of cotton as it was out second year together and that is the traditional gift. Todd came home bearing gluten free baking classes with Jim Dodge. For Christmas, I decided I would get him back by breaking the budget and getting him the SodaStream he had been talking about for the previous year, and you guessed it....he showed me up with a sewing machine and stocking stuffers. So, I thought we were back to our old thoughtful gift song and dance for Valentine's Day, but apparently not!! Unfortunately, I am not sure I can top this four prong Valentine's day anytime soon.....diamonds, dinner, roses, and a night away! I'm feeling a little spoiled right now, and I LOVE it!!
