Starting with red roses and ending with a bottle of champagne, it was an amazing Valentine’s Day with the boyfriend. Besides the flowers, he also got me truffles and took me to Napa for the night. Couldn’t have had a more romantic day!
It only took us 3 hours to get to Napa, so I had enough time to get all pretty with my short pink dress and 5-inch heels. Leaving the hotel room, I was feeling all hot and confident and then: face-plant. So lucky it didn’t happen in the middle of the restaurant! We ended up having a really nice dinner at Tra Vigne, with drinks, good wine, calamari, venison, scallops, and butterscotch pannacotta. The next day we went to celebrity chef Michael Chiarello’s Bottega restaurant for another great meal. The boyfriend has learned quickly that the way to my heart is through my stomach.
By the way, besides the mug I painted for him, my real gift was my name change: I am back to E.M now.
