Surprise for Valentines Day!

My "Sweet Hunter" picked me up for lunch and took me to my absolute favorite restaurant....Houstons in Atlanta, Ga.! I had no idea where we were going. He kept telling me different places and we kept driving and driving. It is over an hour away so this was a treat! I had what I always have. We started out with Spinach Artichoke Dip & Chips. Then I ordered the Traditional Salad, with Honey-Lime Vinegarette with Peanut Sauce & Cheese Toast. Sweet Hunter ordered the Smoked Salmon. We actually ordered a dessert to share! We are usually too full to eat dessert. It was heavenly!

After lunch we stopped by Allatoona Lake to check out our boat that is docked there. It was beautiful even though the lake is still low.

I am so blessed to have a husband like I have. We are very happy. This was a very special day, but he didn't have to do a thing. Just being with him is a special day, any day!

After our special time together, then we went to the hospital to check on my best friends dad. He is really doing good. Thank you for all of your prayers & emails! I have shared this with the family and it means so much to them. He is a Miracle. The doctors are amazed! He actually has had 3 strokes, all in the same place and it shows extensive damage, but thanks to all of the prayers, he is doing remarkable!

It was a wonderful Valentines Day!
