Hello My Darlings,
Let me tell you about the best Valentine's Day weekend of my life. It all started on Friday when Sean drove a couple hundred miles to surprise me (we hadn't seen each other in almost two months since I go to school on one state and he works at another). The next day I got the pleasant surprise of having my parents drive up to spend the long weekend with me and my sister (who also happens to be my wonderful roommate). That Saturday Sean, my parents, and I went on a double date to see an ice sculpture festival and to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. We ended up spending almost half the time inside a chocolate cafe warming up with hot cocoa and live romantic music. Sunday came around bringing a cozy brunch at a riverside cafe with my love and then some fun times with the family. Before we said goodbye Sean handed me a very heavy and big gift box. Inside was the most wonderful gift... well, to me anyways :). Since July of last year I had been looking everywhere for the perfect picnic basket. After a couple months of searching I somewhat gave up, I though I would never find it. Seven months later I now own the perfect picnic basket.
Inside was a beautiful letter and enough chocolate to last me a lifetime (well, knowing me... probably a week).

Now tell me, my darlings, how did you spend Valentine's day?
