Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I could pretty much eat it for every meal with all the savory and sweet offerings. So celebrating Valentine’s with my loved ones with a celebratory brunch seems like the best way to show them how much I adore them! Here are my perfect details with my sample menu:
There’s nothing quite like receiving the unexpected Valentine. They’re sweet and to the point. Here’s a look through time of Valentines from the past up to the present. How have they changed and do you like the older versions or our new interpretations?
One of my favorite holidays when I was a kid was Valentine’s Day. I relished writing out each person’s name and dropping them in the little makeshift “mailboxes” we made for the special day. I excluded no one (that would be cruel!) and adored getting little hearts and treats in return. What better way to encourage acceptance, love and friendship with a kid than through Valentine’s Day? I don’t see any reason to fret or feel left out – ever.
I love making Valentines with my niece and I always get her a little treat to celebrate the day. Here are some of my top picks!
I am a craft and art supply hoarder. I can’t help it. I have two entire closets and two bins in the basement of items that I think I will need someday. Because what happens when I need something and don’t have it? I kick myself for not having bought it off the clearance rack. One of the things that you can never have enough of is various strings, ribbons and yarn types. See five great examples of what you can do inexpensively with string!

Wasn’t the inauguration and the ball just lovely yesterday? Everyone was watching to see what First Lady, Michelle Obama would wear and I was certainly no exception. I loved last year’s Jason Wu gown (which was totally *bridal worthy*, by the way), with it’s hand sewn flowers and floating hemline.
And as a side note, I loved Sasha and Malia’s coordinating coats on Capital Hill (Kate Spade and J. Crew, respectively). And Michelle’s Thom Browne was a tasteful, refined choice for a coat.
I totally didn’t see it coming but she wore a Jason Wu again! I absolutely adored it!! The color was so striking on her and the neckline was simply dazzling. Not to mention the luxurious fabric just draped beautifully on her figure. Now the big question: Did it top last year’s ethereal dreamlike gown? You decide!
I love to plan surprises. Parties, gifts, anything. So with under a month left, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to plant lots of surprises and little goodies for my husband to discover. I’m hoping to pull off at least five of these!
We’re just a couple weeks in but I’m already seeing trends and classics that will certainly carry us through the entire year and beyond. Everything from updated translations on pearls and rhinestones to the a-line bridesmaid dress with modern details, there are endless possibilities.
