I've always loved Valentine's Day, even in the years before I found a "valentine" to call my own.  I have such pleasant childhood memories of strategizing at the kitchen table about which individual Disney princess or Harry Potter card would be most fitting for each of my classmates.  Today, I'm a bit more grown up and I have to admit that it's super fun to have a husband to celebrate with... but I hate to hear people refer to the holiday as "Singles Awareness Day" and complain about its consumerist nature.  (Bah humbug, people!)  Whether you've met your match or not, how wonderful it is to have a whole day to pause and celebrate love!

I'm busy baking cupcakes for Brandon's grad school class tonight, but I promise I will post (with pictures of course!) about our Valentine's day soon! In the meantime, I hope you all are enjoying a love-filled day!



  1. I think the oatmeal.com has a pretty good take on the grumblers of valentines day :)

    Valentines Day is such a great day no matter if you are with someone or not! It's all about Love. Couldn't agree with you more

  2. I used to follow you on weddingbee, and I'm loving your new blog :)

    well said! valentines day is a sweet holiday no matter your marital status.
