Valentine's Day

Yep, I'm a week and half late.  Oh well!  Ben and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day last Friday.  I'm glad we did because Ben ended up getting stuck at work until after 9:00pm on the 14th.  We went out to eat at Saucebox.  The food was really good, especially the soft shell crab steam buns (picture below).  The restaurant felt a little too trendy, but overall, it was a good experience.  Afterwards, we enjoyed some wonderful wine that Ben picked up from a nearby winery and overdosed on chocolate.  Ben was excited about celebrating the day after because that meant he could get my vday chocolate on clearance:)  Haha!

I adore the Sprightly Steps dress and I felt like it was perfect for a sweet Valentine's Day celebration.
