i've got my love to keep me warm

our valentine's day was so snowy.
it made it so cozy. so nice.

i was seriously spoiled.
adam made an amazing pasta & homemade bread,
he made my favorite creme brulee from scratch {as in, scraped the vanilla beans, bought a torch, the whole shebang!},
he arranged for me to eat it with a cute little antique spoon,
he wrote me a sweet letter with little doodles,
he bought be a rose bush that i can plant when spring hits
he scheduled us to take a cooking class together in a few weeks.
i can't wait!

i made adam a butter pecan cake
and i invented the best cream cheese frosting recipe ever, if i do say so myself.
{srsly if you want the recipe, hit me up}
i wrote him up a card featuring lyrics of a song we belted in the car once,
sewed him a pillow from one of his favorite shirts that unfortunately got ruined,
and i made a giant wall sign for his room with the names of places in DC that are integral to our love story.

the whole night was just...
pure happiness.

all i can say is
thank goodness for dimmer switches, home-cooked meals, handwritten letters...
thank heavens for love!
