First of all, we must announce our winner for this month’s Here’s To Us Challenge – it’s…

Sharon O.

She has been busy taking care of her husband who had shoulder surgery last month.  She says: 

“I am not a nurse for me to wait on him and help him with meds, etc. has been both challenging and good for us. We made it.”  🙂

And we are happy to help you celebrate!  Enjoy a night out on us Sharon, and thanks for being a part of our Vineyard!

    Ours was an at-home celebration too. I recently discovered a couple of different cook-books for romantic meals that use “aphrodisiac” ingredients and used them as a jumping off point to make Boullibasse which is pretty much a one dish meal and a no bake chocolate creme pie. Our evening was interrupted by a last minute b-day party for our nephew and the need to pick up the kids from basketball practice but we aren’t a couple who puts too much emphasis on the day as THE most romantic day of the year anyway. So we ate, we opened a special bottle of wine, we relaxed on the couch together and read and when it was time for bed I unveiled something very tiny to see if those aphrodisiac ingredients were what they had been claimed to be. 😉

    My husband gave me the best Valentines Day surprise by changing his FB profile pic to one of us taken as we left the church on our wedding day. It’s a pic that he says takes him back to the happy excitement of that day nearly 21 years ago 🙂

      What a fun night, Barbara! We, too, experimented with the aphrodisiac foods. It was a fun experiment that may have some truth to it! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!!
