Happy Groundhog Day!

In honor of February 2, check out the movie Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray. It’s a funny and somewhat calming film, at least that’s how I feel when I watch it anyway…maybe because time is kind of standing still. Watch it and you’ll see what I mean.

Romantic Meals

Happy February 1! While Valentine’s Day doesn’t represent all that February has to offer, it is a month that is visually filled with more love than usual. Love should be celebrated every day of every month, not just in February. Whether you’re celebrating something big, like an anniversary, or just celebrating being with someone special, it can be fun to change things up. If you usually cook meals at home or do take-out, switch up your routine by going out (and vice versa). The location doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but somewhere where you can sit down and enjoy each other’s company. If you’re a table for one, treat yourself somewhere extra special!

I’ve witnessed a romantic dinner right before my very eyes…it was nighttime, the steps were lined in candles, there was live music playing, and after lounging on cushions drinking wine, the couple moved to a table for dinner, where I’m sure he popped the question. Cue this song to complete the moment.

Here are some romantic locations for a lovely meal over candlelight…

→ Looking over the water on the pier

→ On the beach…cheesy? super romantic? too fancy? All of the above.

→ Double date on a platform surrounded by twinkling lights

→ The rooftop makes a serene and romantic location, especially with the city lights against the night sky

→ Breakfast in bed – best way to start the morning

Friday’s Features

♥ This week I enjoyed 2 snow days!

The second semester has officially begun, and after a long, restful break, I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. Even though I’m swamped wth work this weekend, I want to make it to the theater to catch a flick – perhaps The Iron Lady or In the Land of Blood and Honey? In the meantime, these are the things I have been watching and craving.

♥ Simple heart cupcake toppers as we transition into February

♥ Charlize Theron at the 69th Annual Golden Globes Awards

♥ Spring semester’s motto

♥ Fun and creative Alice in Wonderland themed party drink idea
