of course i'm writing about valentine's day - how could i not... it's feels serendipity that i post on Wednesdays.
these are the flowers by which all others are judged. i laugh - but it's true. i received these while pregnant with Liam. we always have fresh flowers in the chalet, (3 arrangements currently) but this simple bouquet of hydrangeas and pink roses will always be the most beautiful my husband has given me.
to be fair all flowers from Steven are lovely and welcome...but we - all of us - romanticize things in our minds eye. so yes, these from 2011 are my favorite.
my dad Jim was terrific about February 14th. he always made a big deal out of it. he had chocolates not only for Mom, but for my sister and i too!
i remember how exciting it was to get my very own pink heart box with chocolates embossed on it from my debonair father.
i've always had heart shaped objects - boxes, picture frames, jewelry. this little metal tin is from childhood.
i have a smattering of decorations- around the chalet.
the coat closet has a willow wreath with little berry details.
its a welcome touch - that goes seamlessly with the chalet vibe.
my sweet boy made these. Liam certainly knows his momma! making me a bookmark!

i loved googling and reading the history of Valentine's Day. i particularly enjoyed the piece on the History Channel. click through to read for yourself.
