It’s the month of LOVE! Valentine’s Day is almost here!
For our very first Valentine’s Day (way back in 2007!), Dominic gave me a beautiful diamond heart pendant. We had joked that when he gifted me diamonds for the first time I would take out my nose stud. He very much disliked my nose piercing and I was all about landing a nice gift — I just never thought it would come so soon! But, I kept up my end of the bargain and 3 1/2 months after becoming boyfriend/girlfriend I traded my nose sparkle for a bunch of little sparkles in the shape of a heart! It was a good Valentine’s Day :)
These days we don’t do too much for Valentine’s Day. Four kids and a new house can cramp the gift giving category of our budget like that. But, we are hoping to squeeze in a date sometime during the month (I’m crossing my fingers for a steak somewhere!) and will probably exchange something meaningful, but useful. Past Valentine’s Day and this one too most likely, we will choose something family-focused, for our home, or something we can share. True love is practical like that :) How about you? What are your Valentine’s Day traditions?

Mates For Life Print — This would look wonderful in a wall collage and I love the sentiment behind it.
Healing Stone Mugs — Dominic and I both appreciate a good mug and these hand-thrown ones are gorgeous! Sign us up for a pair! Cheers!
A World of I Love You Print — Kind of obsessed with this! Perfect for a family room IMO.
Rooted In Love Planter — We’ve upped our indoor plant game a lot lately and this would be a fun addition to our home’s greenery.
At Home Tranquility Mask — These days, so many of our dates are home dates thanks to our four little ones and I think we could both get on board with a home spa night!
Avocado Hugger — Pair with some homemade margaritas after the kids are in bed and “Ole!” you’ve got yourself a guacamole date night.
Oven-to-Table Entertaining Platter — Dom and I are quite the duo in the kitchen. Plus, I love a practical gift that revolves around good food … in case that wasn’t obvious :)
