I hope your day is filled with everything you love. Mine will be spent in my sewing room working on an idea for Bernina Club with Miss Lucy supervising. I can't think of a better way to spend the day!
Last night Bill and I had a romantic dinner at a favorite local restaurant. Outside there were rose petals scattered down the sidewalk leading to the door and inside beautiful bouquets of flowers on white tablecloths with tiny votive candles casting a romantic glow. All the tables were set for two (I loved that) and we all dined from a Prix Fixe menu. They even prepared a fabulous menu for those of us that don't eat meat! It was the nicest Valentine's Day dinner I can remember - no noisy restaurant - no long lines, just two seatings and a wonderfully relaxed delicious meal.
As we left the owners gave us a little treat bag with salted chocolate truffles. This is a young couple who are working hard to bring a fine dining experience to Bakersfield and it felt so good to support them. It made me think of all of us small business owners who really care about the quality that we bring to our customers. We work hard to make it look easy and effortless and having the support of our community means everything to us.
I just want to say thank you to all of our friends who support us. You mean more to us than you could ever know!
Well, my sewing machine and some exciting fabric combinations await. Have a fabulous day.
Encourage one another,
