Valentine Celebration

We had a very enjoyable Valentine's Eve and Day! We decided to go out to dinner on the 13th, to avoid the crowds and general hub-bub of Valentine's restaurant patrons. We do not usually make a fuss about this Hallmark day. We just go out to eat at a place that we both like. This year we chose to dine at Papa Cristo's Greek Cafe, located inside their Greek market in the Byzantine-Latino Quarter, Pico and Normandie. The Cafe was very festive for the holiday. We saw a few couples that we knew and had a delicious dinner.

The next day, Saturday, was actually Valentine's Day. I zoomed up to the Farmers Market to meet with my once-a-month Saturday WeHo Stitch 'n Bitch Group. Suzette knitted adorable little roses for each of us!!

Another tradition that Larry and I have been maintaining for the past 23 years is that we create a Valentine's Day card for each other. This has become easier over the years with the advent of Photoshop and computer graphics! I just snapped a photo of some of the characters on our dresser. Larry went all out and created a combo-Valentine/Mardi Gras card for me. The mask over his face is actually an enlarged version of a beautiful costume jewelry pin he gave me for the occasion. What a Sweetie Pie!
