Happy V-Day, readers! This is going to sound weird, but Valentine’s Day always makes me think of my dad. When I was little, he made my mom and I gorgeous (and witty) homemade cards, and always signed them from a secret admirer. So no matter what, I always had a valentine from somebody and knew that I was loved. And the great thing is, even once I grew up (and moved overseas), my Dad hasn’t stopped. Every year, I know I’m going to get some kind of valentine from my ‘secret admirer’ and it always gives me such a big smile to receive them. (Thanks, Dad! Love you!) So, whatever you’re doing this Valentine’s Day, I hope you have a special time celebrating the love in your life, in all its different forms.
Here’s a fun little board to set the mood inspired by Rob Ryan, who is just my favourite favourite (also note the gorgeous bridalwear from new Anthropologie label BHLDN which launches today). And here we’re celebrating the holiday with an awesome giveaway from Little Pink Book! Check in later to enter!
