Joy of joys!

What a Valetine's Day it has been. All week long we have been planning to have a family Valentine's Day celebration dinner. In a way, this was a really big deal for me as in years past, I would have used it as an excuse to throw caution to the wind and eat myself silly. As much as I hate to admit it, I used to be one of those all or nothing kind of girls. If I wasn't perfect, I would use it as an excuse to go all out and then feel an obscene amount of guilt about it afterwards. I'm happy to say that today was not one of those days. Yesterday, I made healthy-ish (used half spelt flour and very, very little frosting) cupcakes (instead of a whole cake) for the big day. We roasted a chicken and had homemade sourdough stuffing with mushrooms and LOADS of veg. I had appropriate portions of everything and feel a million dollars for it! And to top it all off, my 14 month old baby took her very first big girl steps. It has been one amazing day!
Happy Valentine's Spark friends!
