Valentine's Day

Friends have mentioned the silliness of the celebration; that there shouldn't be just one day devoted to celebrating love. Rather, they claim this holiday's spirit should be felt on a more regular basis. "Why devote one day to celebrating the person (and people) you love most?" they say. I say why not? I had a good discussion with the lovely ladies I work with in Young Women's at Church, and they made a very good point: we devote one day in the year to celebrate Thanksgiving, but we really should be showing thanks all the time. The same argument can be made for Christmas. So why not Valentine's?

Our Valentine's Day was absolutely lovely. Time together is something Jonathan and I seem to never get enough of these days, so it we made the very most of our holiday:
  • Cleaning and organizing closets
  • Brunch at Kitchenette
  • A long walk around the neighborhood
  • Dressing up and staying in for dinner and dessert

Main Course: Braised Lamb Shanks with White Cannelini Beans, Green Apple and Walnut Spinach Salad

Dessert: Panna Cotta (YUM)
