I spent most of last week sick with a cold, but luckily got rid of it just in time for Valentine's Day! Jesse had Monday off work, due to an odd work schedule, so I played hooky, too, and we spent the whole day just hanging out.

 First, We got brunch at Sabrina's Cafe, close to the Italian Market, where I got the best apple and chedder omelette I've ever tasted.  We've tried to stop there for weekend brunch, but there are always lines out the door. Now I know why.

Since it was finally sunny and a little warmer than usual (who knew I'd be that excited for temperature in the mid 40s), we walked down to Old City and perused vintage book stores and then saw a matinee showing of Somewhere. I loved the movie, especially for the father/daughter bonding moments and for one of the more realistic portrayals of an eleven year old girl I've seen, but as you know from reading this blog, I'm a total Sofia Coppola apologist.  

I can't even remember the last time I saw a daytime movie, much less during the week. There was something so liberating about it, and really about the whole day. It was one of the most leisurely, relaxing days we'd had in a while and the perfect low-key way to spend Valentine's Day. I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day as well.

** If you liked Somewhere, check out the official website - there's an inspiration board, behind the scene clips and photos, and anecdotes from the film.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!
