I love LOVE L-O-V-E Valentine's Day.
I try to dress in as much red as possible.
This box arrived on my doorstep on Valentine's Day, a gift from my darling husband.
It was filled with these...
look familiar? they are from Georgetown Cupcakes, aka the cupcake shop on tlc's DC Cupcakes. And they were amazing!
I decided to make my own decorations this year. That involved sewing lots of felt hearts and hanging them around our home with bits of rustic twine.
I also took some photos of Oliver and made Valentine's Day photo-cards for our family.
Oliver liked to shake the hearts and throw them on the ground so it took a few tries before I captured the perfect v-day snapshots.
For Oliver's first Valentine's day, Nicholas & I bought him a special edition of Mr. Potato Head. He is called "sweetheart spud". Oliver spotted it while we were grocery shopping and loved it. I wrapped it up and let him open it on Tuesday before Nick & I left for a romantic date at Romano's Macaroni Grill, my favorite restaurant. I think he enjoyed the gift wrapping paper more than the toy, though.
Notice the gift bow Oliver is wearing like a hat?
How did you spend your Valentine's Day this year?
Piglet: "How do you spell 'love'?
Pooh: "You don't spell it, you feel it."
