I have been enjoying seeing all of the hearts, cupids and Valentine’s Day inspirations around the web. I wanted to share some lovey dovey goodies that have particularly caught my eye. I am totally addicted to Pinterest so between there, Starbucks and the gym you know where to find me.

Thankfully in the next few weeks I will be hitting the slopes. Then you will find me riding my favorite chairlift, soaking in bright bluebird skies, high altitude sun and swishing down fluffy snowy trails at my favorite place on Earth.

Beautiful. It’s amazing how Valentine’s day is important in US and UK. In France, not so much. Hubbies will offer bunches of flowers, belgian chocolates, and an invitation to a good (and expensive one) restaurant. No card, no DIY stuff. Dommage!

Miss Sparkle, I gotta tell you most of the guys I know don’t even know the date of Valentine’s Day. I do more of this stuff for myself, my kids & you guys! So try not to feel too bad about it…make yourself a card & buy the best chocolates you can find!! *kisses*

*sigh* Betty, I know it if only decorated cookies came that easily for me. Wish I had the patience!

Your son is so sweet!

Cheers,

I, like you, have been acquiring my Valentine favorites via Pinterest(may need to edit mine as you and I are on the same wavelength). Love the photos of our kids – that could quite possibly be the best valentine of all!!!
