Here's a secret: I really look forward to Valentine's Day every year. In an embarrassing way. Maybe it's because it helps me break through the January blues, or maybe it's because I really love the color pink, or maybe just because I'm sappy and love celebrating love for one cheesy day a year.
Luckily my BFF gets into the spirit too - she used to go all out for V-Day in college and hung a heart-shaped wreath on our apartment door. This year, Kristina sent me the sweetest care package for Valentine's Day, complete with a gorgeous pink shade of Kate Spade lipstick, hazelnut chocolates, a sparkly gold sports headband, heart tea towel, and fun paperclips. So thoughtful and it totally brightened my entire week. So good to have sweet friends!
Even Google was in the holiday spirit and served up a trio of Valentine's Day-themed desserts at lunch last Friday. How cute are the silver sprinkles?
Continuing with my cheesy-ness, Lucas gave me this unbelievably beautiful flower arrangement from Church Street Flowers in SF. They've been looking so gorgeous in our apartment all week. He also surprised me by booking me a blowout appointment here right after work, which was so thoughtful and the perfect way to end a stressful week and get into a relaxing mood for our date night. Amazing experience and such a treat.
We had a romantic date night at SPQR in Pacific Heights, where the food/wine is amazing. It was the perfect first Valentine's Day as a married couple. To be sappy for a moment, I feel so incredibly lucky to have my sweet husband in my life, who makes me happy on Valentine's Day and everyday. Hope you all had an amazing (Hallmark-but-who-cares) holiday as well! xo
