I love being pampered with love and surprises on that special day. My hubsey is not really fond with the idea. Early in our marriage, I often had to remind him that the V-day was coming up :)
After several years of marriage, we are adjusting to each other well (I think). He put reminders on his mobile for all our special dates and I am happy with whatever he gives me (or not).
After all, it's all about love. Whether it's a Valentine's day or not, let's remind each other to love those around us while they're still alive.
Here are some ideas to inspire you for the big V-day:
1. TO EAT: Vanilla Bean Heart Doughnuts by WhipperBerry
Aren't they gorgeous? These little delights would surely melt everyone's heart.
... and I think these would be something my kids would love! Check out the recipe here
2. TO DIY: Bird Dome with Paper Feathers by MossyJojo
This was a simple DIY I did using a used coffee jar as the dome. What's great about it is that you can write a personal message and put inside the dome. Read the full instruction here
3. TO DECOR: Heart String Art Decor by Handmaker of Things
I've seen lots of string art in the past year and this one is a beauty! I love how the nails are hammered into a piece of plywood, not directly into the wall, so you can easily update your decor. I think this would look great for Valentine's party or even a wedding. Why didn't I think of this when I got married? D'oh!
