A simple Valentine

Hi friends, it’s been awhile hasn’t it!? I wanted to pop by because I’m sharing my idea of a perfect Valentines gift, one that I adore. My husband and I are not the type of couple that will go all out on Valentines Day (no jewelry for me or expensive watches for him), but the ones who will do something quite simple. With that being said, a little love letter, a beautiful plant, and a homemade dinner (or takeout) is what makes my heart full.  And as much as I love tulips and flowers, with this terribly cold and gloomy winter an azalea plant couldn’t be more perfect for me…because it last so much longer!

This year I want to encourage you to write a beautiful letter or handwritten note to your love. Just find or make a fancy envelope and even a couple colorful pens, and speak from your heart.  I find it so much more meaningful reading a letter over a couple pre-made sentences in a store bought card.  I try to beautify my letters with a pretty envelope, calligraphy, and my wax seal..but that’s just me going overboard ;)

P.S. For the guys out there who might actually read this, try out a plant this year for your lady (or for the ladies who are gifting to other ladies), this one is from ProFlowers.  And because you might ask about my wax stamp, that pretty thing is custom made from Stamptitude ;)  Happy Valentines day!

I Think You'll Love...
