I love Valentine’s Day! Even when I haven’t been in a relationship, I still love to celebrate it with family and friends. I woke up to a great breakfast with my family and tonight I’m having a nice night in with the boyfriend. We decided to avoid all the crowds at the restaurants and make a fun dinner at home.
I’m also giving him his Chocolate Covered Brownies and Blondie Balls, using his favourite Protein Brownies. We kept a budget of $30 for gifts because it really feels like we just did Christmas gifts, so I picked up a few little odds and ends that made me think of him. I like keeping it simple and just spending time with each other is more important than any gift.
While catching up on this week’s TV shows (love Valentine episodes!), I decided to tidy up the apartment and add a few little sweet touches for our Valentine’s Day dinner.
While digging through my gift wrapping supplies, I found these red heart doilies to tape over the frames. Simple art that can be taken down as soon as the holiday is over.
Another little touch I did, was rearranging the bookshelf to get all my red and pink toned books together. Usually I have it in a rainbow pattern, but it seemed fun to change things up for a bit!
I can’t wait to get home from work tonight to make a fun dinner and enjoy a nice evening cuddling up for a movie night with the guy I love. I couldn’t ask for a better Valentine’s Day.
your place looks so cute! all you need are seasonal dish towels… 😉

I was thinking of making homemade cards for everything but the only problem I have is envelopes! Do you buy them from an office supply store or a craft store?
