Happy Valentine's Day!


A day to celebrate love in many ways.

Good evening and Happy Valentine's Day to you! It turned out to be a beautiful day today, as I celebrated the day in simple ways with my darling—though out of nowhere, he surprised me entirely by taking me shopping for a bouquet of my choice. After looking around our favorite shop for several minutes, I found it nearly impossible to decide, but my heart was set on a very lush and flowy (almost fountain-like) bouquet of incredible dendrobium orchids—that gradated from white to soft pink...








But it wasn't the flowers alone that made my day—it was the little things—the unspoken things that were significant today, and always. It is the little acts of love and kindness that really last within our minds and hearts. And if today was not your day, my wish for you is that you would not give up on romance, but hold out for that person who makes you feel like the very best version of yourself. You deserve nothing less. And whether or not that special person has arrived in your life, celebrating being you is in order on a daily basis. What have you done for yourself lately? Large or small—it could be a new pair of heels you've had your eye on or a nice long walk.

Wonderful words of wisdom and it sounds like you met the person who allows you to do that!! xo

  11. Its always the small sweet gestures that count. I received my favourite chocolates, and my toddler and I painted a valentines card for my sweetheart. And then we made dinner together. It was really nice. Somehow every year, it seems to be a mostly magical day for young lovers more than anything. Besides, we celebrate a big anniversary later this week so we hold out for a dinner date and special gifts on that day instead of the 14th. (Yay)~!
    PS: I adore that bag!
    Have a great week Sarah.
