Thanks to my amazing and fabulous visiting teacher, Tia, Lance and I were able to celebrate a wonderful, romantic Valentine's together the night before Valentine's. Tia offered to watch Skye that night so we could go on a date. We started the evening off with a couples massage which was very relaxing. Then we went out to eat at this really nice Italian restaurant called Tomaso's. I was going to take the camera to get some pictures, but I forgot. We took a few with Lance's cell phone, but the restaurant was so dark, only this one turned out mildly good. It is looking into the restuarant from where we were sitting. We wanted to go to Tomaso's to sit out on the beautiful patio that has a statue and fountain and fire, but it was too cold. Can you believe it? It was too cold! So we had to eat inside. But the food was fabulous anyway! I had the Alaskan halibut in pesto sauce (oh so delicious) while Lance had seared Ahi Tuna. Then we shared a very yummy, very chocolate dessert. It was one of the best dates we've been on in a long time! Then Lance bought me a turqoise ring and bracelet in Tucson (more on that to come later) as a Valentine's present. I love turqoise! What a great husband and what a great Valentine's!
