Hey everyone~ welcome to another French Country Fridays! Before we get into the post, I have to apologize. I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole week without posting – until this week! And what’s funny is I’ve had more hectic weeks for sure. I’ve just been crazily organizing and purging and somehow, the week got away from me. I’ve been quite taken with the whole “tidying” craze, ie; “Marie Kondo-ing”!! What can I say? I’m completely hooked!
Hello friends and welcome to a very special French Country Fridays! I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m calling it “special” and that’s because this week is our 52nd FCF! Yes, it has been exactly a year since we began our little weekly French-inspired group posts!
I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
I’ve been a little uninspired in the decorating department since taking all the Christmas decor down, but with Valentine’s Day coming soon, it’s the perfect excuse to break out some pretty pink decor! Today I’m joining some talented blogging friends for the Styled + Set Entertaining Blog Hop. If you’re coming here from our host, Lory of Designthusiam, I’m so glad you’re here!
