This year's valentines celebration was pretty low key for us, mostly because I've still been fighting this killer cold. It makes me not so eager to make a big deal out of the holiday. Basically when I'm sick I get really selfish. I had originally planned to make a *romantic* dinner complete with pink and white heart shaped pasta, but when my mom mentioned she was making potato soup, I saw an opportunity to get out of cooking and invited us over. We can have the heart pasta tomorrow, I guess.
We were not total haters, though. My valentine did wake me up with a sweet surprise of something that I had wanted for a while...this print from Persimmon and Pink.
The funny thing is, I almost bought that for him. Wouldn't that have been something? But since I've got budget on the brain, I had to get creative for his present. But back to this. I already had the perfect frame for it - a wedding present that we had never used - and the perfect spot. I wanted to hang it in our bathroom so that it would be the first thing we saw as we walked in. And this is what it looks like in place.
I love it. It makes the [bland] space much cheerier.
When I thought of what to get Byron, I got creative. I downloaded two of these prints, which were a freebie. I uploaded them to my account at Walgreens and had them printed and mailed to me for under $5. I could have done it for even cheaper, but I decided to enlarge them a bit and I also ordered them with a matte finish. But really, I was pleased with how they turned out.
After a week of birthday and valentines presents, we now have 4 new prints for the house, 1 of which is actually framed and hung the same day we got it! Not bad!
I hope you all have a fantastic Valentine's Day, whether it was low key like ours was or something super special.
