Valentine's Day, 2011

Lauren and I celebrated Valentine's Day simply, with a huge BBQ lunch at Chicago Q:

...and with dinner at the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the Hancock Center near our house.  What a view!

We enjoyed our first Valentine's Day as a married couple, and we look forward to many more to come.

Lauren and I enjoyed the first full-fledged blizzard of our lives last week.  It had the distinction of being the third-largest blizzard in recorded Chicago history.  It was a piece of cake (and actually a lot of fun) from our point of view, but then again we had no car to dig out, no sidewalk to shovel, no utility outages, and no urgent need to leave the house.

We made the best of the evening in, watching the snowstorm, reading to each other, and sipping hot chocolate.

Rather than delaying this post any longer, I figured I should just link to our gallery of photos from the storm, and embed below all the little youtube videos we made, in no particular order.  Enjoy, Mom. :)
