Stella kept asking me when I was going to put out our Valentine decorations. I promised her that I would get to it. However, I have been feeling a little under the weather. I came down with Strep throat this week and I was miserable. Then to top it off, I had some major dental work done.
Some how I had to find a way to put up the Valentines. Oh wait. I really don’t have much by way of V-day decorations. I have never really been one to love what is available. I decided to make my own.
This is what my dining table looked like after the holidays.
I love how simple and white my table has been. And then….
I added some splashes of red.
This is what it looks like now that I added a little love.
I used some wrapping paper to make my banner and the hearts. I picked up the paper on clearance after the holidays. I was excited when I realized how great it would look for Valentines.
I also broke out my computer and made a few printables.
A few love notes to my family.
Some truth to live by.
…and then the words to “Our Song.” I picked up this red frame at Hobby Lobby. I fell in love with it and new that it would look adorable for Valentines.
After I started to feel a bit better, I had a little party here at the house. I invited some girls up for dinner, and was so grateful when I woke up that morning feeling more like myself.
Dinner was delicious, but dessert was even better.
Salted Carmel Cupcakes the recipe can be found here.
Don’t they look delicious?
Well they were.
Now that I am feeling better I hope to find a little more time to record great moments on my blog, and I just might get 365 caught up.
I am grateful health has found it’s way back to me, and I am enjoying having reminders of love sprinkled throughout our home.
