Saturday night my husband had made reservations for a super romantic spot on the edge of Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades called Caffe Delfini. I was so surprised. In the 8 years that Danny and I have been together, I have been working really hard to get him to be romantic and surprise me, this was finally it! He reserved the window seat, tucked into a corner of this tiny Italian place, owned by real Italians none-the-less! We ordered a nice bottle of Italian red wine and had a very lovely dinner just a block off the PCH. And tiramisu to finish it off, some of the best I've ever had!
I also would like to point out the fact that we celebrated V-day not on V-day...this is another thing that can be said against the date is that restaurants love to take advantage. Pre-fixe menus that cost double what they normally would. Terribly obvious foods like chocolate covered strawberries (which I love, but come on!) and pink champagne. Gag.
I am a hopeless romantic and Danny has learned how to appease my idealism. Good job Danny, best Valentine's Day ever! I love you!
I hope everyone has a pleasant day today. Cheers!
