Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! Since the Mrs. and I were heading back to Arkansas on V-Day, we had to get our celebration in a day ahead. As always, I stepped up to the plate and pulled out all the stops............sorta.
First up, flowers! Luckily we live in a garden oasis here in the Napa Valley and roses are already at full bloom...........in February.  It is like a garden of Eden around here. This beauty appears to be a hybrid-cross between a red and a white rose, and can be found directly in front of our patio.
Sorry, this isn't Dom PĂ©rignon or even Schramsberg at that..............but rather a < $10 bottle of Segura Viudas Brut Reserve Spanish Cava. C'mon, this isn't Christmas!  I have to keep some kind of budget.
Why spend all of your money on Champagne when you can spend it on chocolate? No Hershey's, Dove, or Ghirardelli will do for my Valentine.  But some chocolates from St. Helena's own Woodhouse Chocolates will. 
I think the Mrs. is going to like it.
Bam!  We got Gianduja, Milk Chocolate Caramel Mouse, Mocha Cream, Passion Fruit, Peanut Croquant, Pecan Caramel, Praline Noisette, Wild Cherry, Brown Butter Ganache, Cinnamon Toast, and Espresso. Wait, is that twelve?  Oh yeah, and Fiori di Sicila!
And then their was none (elapased time 4 minutes).  Happy Valentine's Day Mrs. Walnofer. I love you.

And thanks for the Valentine's Day Socks. I love socks, really, I do.
