With Valentines day fast approaching, the kids and I have had some fun learning the history of Valentines day, writing love poems and letters expressing appreciation to someone we love. ( I found a sweet love note tucked under my pillow from my youngest.) We have read Romeo and Juliet as well as Twelfth Night.
The highlight of last week was seeing a production of Romeo and Juliet at Lourensford Estate (1700) in Somerset West. The singing, dancing and acting was outstanding and the costumes magnificent. It was the perfect setting for this visual feast and despite being soaked with rain a couple of times, it was a most memorable fun filled evening for the entire family.
We plan to have a celebratory meal together on Valentines Day. Here's wishing you all a wonderful day filled with love!
