Valentine's Date Night

Since I was going to leave on Tuesday morning and had to work a lot last weekend, we decided to do our Valentine's Day celebration last night and had such a good time!

We enjoyed a lovely (and fancy) dinner at the 1808 Grille. 
I had a lemon souffle pudding for dessert. Definitely the highlight.

Went home for a quick change before...
 We went to see The King's Speech. I cannot tell you how much I loved this movie! I love studying European (specifically British) history/literature from about the 1730s through WWII, so apart from my bias, it was a beautiful story. 

I knew I always liked the things I had read about King George VI, but I never knew the details of his disability, his relationships and his strength as he became the face and voice of England as Hitler prepared to attack, despite his severe speech impediment.

It's definitely in my list of top 5 favorite movies and I think you should totally check it out if you haven't seen it yet!
