We had beautiful plans for Valentine’s Day/Our Anniversary. Picture a dreamy picnic on the beach, wearing all white with red 5 inch heels, wind blowing, sun warming up the sand, Lexi running around with her white dress, red bow and red shoes, trying to run into water and squealing from delight…
Yup, none of it happened. The day was gloomy and yucky with low pressure and then it RAINED. Long, boring rain, like the one I hated so much when we lived up north. Temperatures dropped and it was unpleasant, wet and cold.
So we dropped by our favorite bakery to pick up some completely non-vegan red velvet cakes and then had dinner at Brio.
Lexi was still adorable in her dress and red bow and the whole restaurant was smitten by her. It was a still a good time. But I didn’t get to take a single picture. Not one. No biggie- not the end of the world.
I did take a few spontaneous Valentine’s snapshots while we were running around outside and feeding lions earlier in the day. I was trying Lexi’s outfits on for our trip and put this one on, which is size 2-3 in the pants and is way too big, but I didn’t get a chance to take it off, because she ran off to play. Though even with bunched up pants, I still think it looks adorable.
