How We Spent Valentine's Day

 I thought I would share with you a sneaky peak into how we spent Valentine's this year. I love writing these type of posts, as they are such fun to look back on in months/years to come. The day started as every day should, with breakfast in bed! We had creamy vanilla yogurt with juicy fresh fruit and buttery croissants, and lots of orange juice to wash it down with.

 We relaxed and made the most of it, pondering and reminiscing, getting excited about the fact that next year we will be spending Valentine's as Husband and Wife. Which I'm especially looking forward to, do you know how hard it is to find a nice Fiancé card?! The struggle is real.

 We finally managed to prise ourselves away, we got up and dressed for the day. We decided to head off to beautiful Buxton for a day of exploring. We vowed that we would explore more of our local area and country this year, I have plenty of places both countryside and cities on my list, and I intend on ticking them off one weekend at a time!

  It may appear a beautiful bright sunny day, but by the last picture you can see it was actually freezing cold and very windy! At one point we even had some snow. The views and rolling hills were glorious, and romantic to walk through.

  We even took a trip down and inside Poole's Cavern, the caves were so awe-inspiring, like a whole other world. I would highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the Buxton area. After filling our lungs with fresh country air, the Mr treated me to Afternoon tea at the stunning No 6 The Square. A quaint, cosy tea room just across from the Pavilion.

All the tables had a fresh rose on them, and the surroundings oozed elegance.

 When the glittering platter was set before us, my mouth instantly started watering. There were mini sandwiches - cream cheese, salmon and ham. Then two succulent, large cherry scones with lashings of cream and jam. Then the final tier, my favourite, was all the cakes! From a pink glittery macaroon filled with hazelnut chocolate, to a spicy carrot cake. It's fair to say we were stuffed by the time we finished! We polished off our teas before heading back to the car, and setting off home.

How did you spend your Valentine's?
