v-day

sam and i had a rare weekend of no plans. the snow kept us mostly in, but we ventured out on saturday.





we had lunch at the porter. we always end up trying to do the most non family-friendly fare, but i loved my burger and the atmosphere was very warm and pub-like and we sat on a slanted booth and drank out of huge ball jars.





on valentine's day, with the assistance of our wonderful friends/neighbors, i was able to surprise sam (read: he was blindfolded!) with a staplehouse dinner! it was just the coolest experience. we are so proud of jen and ryan. check out their most recent press here and here!













i am so in love with my valentine!

i had lunch at the porter the other weekend and LOVED it. the lemonade+ginger+vodka concoction is to die for and that goat cheese fritters. oh my goodness.
