I love Valentine’s Day! The colours, the chocolate, the cards the Loooove….but it wasn’t always so. I used to dread the day when it seemed like everyone got tokens of affection from their loved ones in the entire world except me. UGH. What I realized a few years ago though, is that V-day is a day set aside for love of any kind, and expressing love is good! N0w I bake for my family, and do little special things for my people. Tonight in fact, I’ve organized a family bowling night, how fun is that?!?
Below I’ve collected a few pictures of Valentines-y things around the house. I favour pink in my colour scheme rather than red as you’ll see. Some stuff is permanent, some just for today. All of it reminds me of love.
I found this at London Drugs the other night: it’s an old fashioned punch-out valentines day card book! I remember giving these to my classmates in elementary school.
Some vintage pink gloves and a fascinator on my dressing table.
This was a happy tableau accident: pink trench on pink chair with pink floral cushion.
Pink grapefruit tic tacs? Yes please! Lovely flavor and the sight of them makes me happy 🙂
Wall art. The pink dachshund painting is by my talented cousin, Lauren.
My anniversary card from Jeff: it’s been a month and it’s still on the window sill to remind me that he loves me!
Some options for my V-Day outfit.
Maybe this one?
I got these heart lights at Target for $1, and they’ve been lighting my stove hole up for over a month. This morning though? They died. How ironical, right?
I made a little heart-shaped red velvet cake for my sweetheart today.
Happy heart day everyone!
