Love is in the air this week, so I’m hoping to take in more than a few deep breaths of it! I’m sure we all want Valentine’s Day to be as near to perfect as it can possibly be, and I was wondering what three things would make it exactly that? A few blogging lovelies were lovely enough to answer. Enjoy them, Friends!
Jane of simple + pretty:
…a pretty pink libation, like the rose sherbet from Australia’s Belinda Black Catering, would make the perfect Valentine’s drink. I definitely have a sweet tooth, and so to go with the rose sherbet, I’d love an assortment of heart-shaped shortbreads and homemade marshmallows from Stewart & Clark. Valentine’s Day is all about pink for me. This pretty pink tee shirt from Tuss doesn’t come in my size, but I hope to find something similar to wear this spring.
Lillian of Unstitched:
…cooking a simple dinner with the man I love, enjoying the meal with him without any distractions, and then indulging in something chocolaty to finish the night!
For me, Valentine’s Day isn’t about the bells and whistles; it’s about taking a day to really appreciate the people you love. I never choose to do anything fancy that day, which saves us from fighting crowds at restaurants with overpriced fixed menus! Instead, I love staying at home and preparing a meal with my man, because then we get to enjoy the simple moments of just being together. In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, this is a day that we remember to slow down and appreciate each other. To have a day like this is a treasure.
And, because I love chocolate, I’d definitely love to end the day with some decadent, quality chocolate. My top choices would be salted caramel chocolate truffles or dark chocolate-covered strawberries!
Emily of Name 5 Things:
…to have a little fairy come pack our house that just sold and move us out; to skip the roses and chocolate and receive a pair of Louboutin pumps instead; and to spend the day with my husband in the most romantic place ever: Paris!
Caroline of Greedy Girl:
…a few pretty, vibrant prints to help build a gallery art wall in our new home. These paintings by (clockwise from top) Molly Dilworth, Diana Delgado, and Theo Altenberg definitely fit the bill with their bright splashes of color. It’d be impossible to look at such a collection and feel anything but love!
Thank you, ladies, for sharing your brilliant wishlists. I hope they all come true. Your turn, Friends! Will you tell me the three things that would make your Valentine’s Day perfect? Write them down and let’s make sure they happen!
