be mine

It's Valentines day! Hope you all have had, and are continuing to have a fabulous day. I've heard many people saying they 'hate' Valentines day. I just dont get this at all. I mean, love isnt just for romanticly involved couples... its also for sisters, best friends, sons and fathers, brothers, mothers and daughters, hell... it could even be love between you and that fur-ball of a dog you own. It doesnt have to be a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. It's just a special day, where we get to do special things with people we love. No matter who they are - as long as we love them.

My Valentines day has been lovely.... and here are a few pictures to prove it!
We started off our day with mini pancakes and strawberries.. yum!

I left my darling hubby a special love note in his lunch box.

The heart hanging from our bedroom door handle isnt actually something I put up especially for Valentines day - it hangs there all year round, but I've decided to show it to you anyways because... well... it's a heart and it goes with today.

After lunch I got into the mood for baking. I made these delicious choc-caramel muffins. I was lucky enough to find cute patty-cases with hearts all over them at the back of my cupboard - perfect for Valentines day muffins.

After Scott came home from work, we went for a walk around the block, and took outfit photos (i'll post them separatley). When we got back home, we checked the mail..... and to our surprise, we had both sent each other Valentines Day cards.

To end the day, Scott cooked me a delicious spag-bol. He decorated the tabel with tea light candels in the shape of a heart and gave me a little gift of an owl necklace and an origami rose.

Happy Valentines Day to all my lovely bloggers out there!

  14. Lovely day, lovely photos! Those mini-pancakes look delicious (as do the cupcakes...I think I need to go eat breakfast. For the second time today). I like your opinion on Valentine's Day. My mom and I ALWAYS did something special for this day. It doesn't just have to be romantic love, does it? And that's what makes it fun!

    And so romantic! =)

  16. you lucky thing! sounds like an awesome day

  17. This day sounds perfect! I totally agree, the big V day is for love and appreciation of all kinds, to say you 'hate' it is so bitter and ignorant. I understand the hate of the consumerist side of the occasion but your special day has proved you don't need to lavishly spend to show each other you care. And snap! I baked too :) jazzy ♥

  18. So adorable! I love the romantic table you guys set up!

    Thanks for stopping by :)
