For one of Luke's gifts I made him three Chatbooks of my Instagram pictures. Because he doesn't have Instagram I wanted to compile some into these little books. I was so excited when I saw that Caravan Shoppe had the cover images available for download for free! He picked out his other gift on his own - a GoPro pole for his camera. That one will come in the mail soon.
For Lottie's gift I waited until right after Valentines for everything to go on sale. Then I bought her a love teddy bear. She gets so excited every time she sees it and attacks it with a "bear" hug. It's really too cute.
For me, Luke went all out. First we went antique shopping - he knows the way to my heart - then surprised me with my choice of a pedicure, manicure, massage, or some other spa treatment. I was super surprised and showered him with kisses!
On the way to the antique shop, Luke told me a story of the first time he had been to this particular shop. It was right before we started dating. Way back in an old dusty corner, he found a little red jewelry box. One that he planned to purpose to his future wife with. That was me. And he did use it, except he played a mean trick and the box was empty when I opened it (the ring was in his sock). So there was a nice little back story to this quaint store. After this, we browsed through an old book store. I found a children's book dated from 1911! We just sat in the children's corner perusing books.
For dinner we decided to drive around to look for a new place to try. We found Bona Vita Italian Bistro that sounded good, however, it being Valentines Day and we didn't have a reservation, we weren't able to get in. But it was okay, we went next door to Johnny Rockets, which was just as good if not better :) It was a lovely day.
