A Valentine's Day Surprise

Happy Valentine's Day!
It's a beautiful brisk day here in New York.  Overnight we got some more snow.
 I think it looks so beautiful clinging to the trees.  

Yesterday was a busy day in our house.  The painters started repairing the sheetrock in the basement and putting the walls back together.  I had workers coming and going all day long.  My husband mentioned that he was expecting a package that would need a signature.  I was home all day anyhow so I told him I would be there to sign for it.  The doorbell rang around noon and I opened the door to a man wearing a black shirt with an emblem on it that I recognized, although I couldn't figure out why I recognized it.  He said, "hi, I'm from Ethan Allen and I have a delivery of a library table for you today."  I was visibly shocked.  It was the Ethan Allen emblem I recognized.  He said, "you don't seem to be expecting us."  In a few seconds I started to process exactly what was happening.  I have wanted the library table from Ethan Allen for years, but never wanted to spend the money on it.

This was the best Valentine's Day gift...ever!! 
Quickly I tried to explain that this must be a surprise from my husband and that I have wanted this table forever and I was so excited that they were here.  I probably sounded a little wacky to the delivery guys, but I was just so darn happy.  The delivery guy asked if I knew where I wanted it.
Of course I knew exactly where I wanted it...I have dreamed of it for so long.
I had them set it up in my family room.

I styled it quickly, but plan on putting something better together.

I have always loved the detail on this piece.
This was the best surprise and the most perfect Valentine's Day gift.
Some girls want flowers and candy... some jewelry.
Me...a gorgeous piece of furniture from Ethan Allen...I'm one happy girl!

This is 26th Valentine's Day that I have been lucky enough to share with the man who is my husband.  Thank you honey for always bringing so much joy to my life.
