Valentine's Day in Pictures

Hello Lovelies! I hope you are having a sweet start to your day! Since my hubby and I are miles apart while he continues to study at NYU and I'm in our Florida home we're celebrating together in spirit. I got a chance to surprise him by staggering a few handmade valentines cards and popping them  in the mail to brighten up his study time and I got a sweet phone call this morning followed by a ring of the doorbell with a delivery of  beautiful flowers just moments ago. My heart melted. :)

Although we are celebrating together from afar, I'll be hanging out solo today. What's a girl to do? Have a 'me' day of course! ;) I'll be leaving for tea and a light lunch shortly at one of my favorite vegetarian cafes. I'm not vegetarian, but their food is amazing! Then I'll be heading to the spa for a facial, using up the rest of a gift certificate that hubby gifted me with before Christmas. So, I guess you could say it's the gift that keeps on giving!

I also have a date with this yummy looking s'mores cupcake later tonight...

In celebration of all things lovely, sweet, delicious, pink+red and of the heart, here are some images to warm your heart.

How about a heart meringue?

Trusting the one who has the key to your heart.

I love red roses but I'm a pink peony kind of girl. You might remember this surprise I got last spring

The excitement of a delivery full of pink surprises.

New found joy in a new found attitude.

Love and longing can set your heart a flutter.

Sweetheart roses.

Happy Annivesary to my inlaws! Paul's parents got married on Valentine's Day.
My mom and dad also got engaged on Valentine's day. :)

Write a love letter to someone special.

Why not make some creative v-day cards out of paint chips!

Here's to going solo sometimes and being an island unto yourself.

February is a time to start thinking ahead to spring and what will bloom!

I {heart} chai with cinnamon sticks.

Living off of fabulous red pumps + sweet treats

Blow someone a red-lipped kiss.

Wishing you a full heart and a full calendar of fun with friends!

Start someone's morning off with a smile!

I have been meaning to make some framed heart art. Love this piece!

jam-filled hearts for a midday snack.

In honor of the snowy season & my home country, Canada ;) Warm hands = a warm heart

Get a little creative on a chilly + snowy Valentine's Day.

long distance kisses for those you miss...

Wishing you a joyful day whether you're surrounded by those you love or going solo like me!

  7. Hi Karla,

    I found your blog via a comment you left at The Nester. I have a blog too and love the layout and look of yours. Did you do it yourself? I'm also wondering how everyone does their signature. Any help is appreciated. I will add you to my blogroll.

  8. Thanks Ladies! It was a great day! :)

    @UrbanCottageDecor-Thank you for poppin gover for a visit. I just went from a self-made template to a customized prefab design by Penny Lane Design, see her link at the botton my page.

    As far as how to create the signature, you can find a post I wrote on that here, and you can also see the old signature I created on my own:
    The other day you had asked me how to create a blog signature. The one I have now was created by my blog designer, Penny Lane Designs. However, my old one can be seen in this post and I share the details on how to create your own. It's actually fairly easy to create:

    Cheers! :)



Thanks for stopping by, your comments make my day! I read every single one and will answer any questions you have. I hope you'll visit again soon! :)
