Confession: Sometimes, I like to take myself out on dates. I don’t have a significant other to spend Valentine’s Day with; so I can go wherever and do whatever I want guilt-free without any disappointments. I love it! And, that’s what I did this weekend because I’m pretty sure that the actual Valentine’s Day weekend will be spent watching the Gilmore Girls on Netflix or something. Who knows?!
I went to Vino & Van Gogh for a Valentine’s Day pop-up event. I had never been to Vino & Van Gogh before, but I’d love to take a class in the near future. Anyway, I was the most “in love” with C Brooke Ring’s work.
Her floral paintings are so bright and cheery that it would literally be like having the sun itself dazzling inside of a room. So pretty!
I walked out with this lovely ballerina print in hand; and, it’s already hanging on my wall. I absolutely love it!
Then, I decided to try out a restaurant that I’ve never been to before. Enter The Lazy Goat. It’s a Mediterranean-themed restaurant located right by Falls Park in downtown Greenville.
I had the Duck Duck Goat pizza: duck confit, drunken goat cheese, farm egg, arugula, sour cherry vinaigrette. It was so delicious!
After my lunch/dinner, I had the dessert special at Soby’s: passion fruit sorbet on top of a braised peach, peach honey baklava, and Creme brûlée. I have never seen so much of heaven on a plate before. And, you better believe that I ate every single bite of this absolute awesomeness…
If you’re single, how are you treating yourself on Valentine’s Day? And remember, it’s much better to be single and alone than it is being with someone and miserable.
