For me, Valentine's Day is going to be like any old day and I will wait anxiously for Friday to come, when I can finally see John again. I feel like its been forever and its hard to think we still have a few more months to go until we can share a space again. But, this week, rather than being melancholy, I'm becoming excited to plan a nice weekend for the two of us!
I'm not sure what the weekend will include, but it doesn't really matter, does it? Its nice to know you can spend a whole uninterrupted weekend together. In fact, we might even go look at some apartments. Obviously, I am having trouble adjusting without John here which has put off the apartment hunting some; but eventually we will be in the same place, our place, and knowing that time is coming (however far it is) helps me stay optimistic and hopeful for the future.
3 cups strawberies
1/3 cup sugar
3 lemons, juiced
4 cups champagne or seltzer (recommended: berry or lemon)
Hull and dice the strawberries into a bowl. Stir in the sugar and let the strawberries macerate. In a large pitcher, add the strawberries and juice, lemon juice, and champagne/seltzer. Stir to combine. Pour into champagne glasses and serve.
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!!!
Until the next time my oven is on...
