Velvet Hearts and Moulin Rouge
Valentine's started early for me this year. The Mr. and I attended a performance of Moulin Rouge by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet on Thursday night. It was a beautiful and tragic story of two star crossed lovers set circa 1900 at the Moulin Rouge. Sound familiar? There were many similarities to Baz Luhrmann's story but not the over-the-top-ed-ness to the production... and once settled into the tone, I adored it.

I've had far too much chocolate today. I got very spoiled and have been working on this velvet heart box of Roger's Chocolates. For those of you who have visited Victoria, B.C. you've probably seen Roger's. It's a gorgeous little jewel of a store first opened in 1891.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but do hope you're enjoying a lovely Valentine's Day everyone!
