Happy Valentine's Day

I was in Denver, CO last week for a photography workshop that's pretty much changed my life, I'm still working through my notes and pictures so more on that later this week. In the meantime, I thought I'd wish everyone a happy Valentine's day.

Wikipedia tells me that Saint Valentine's Day has been around since 496AD despite the reputation as a "Hallmark Holiday" and it's a day for celebrating "love and affection". I'll admit in the past I've had Valentine's days where I'm all "where are my flowers!?!?" but I think there's a lot to be said for the little things that happen not on Valentine's Day...

I bought my current car about 2 years ago and a couple of months back I mentioned to Paul that it must have a HUGE container for the windshield-wiper fluid as I hadn't needed to fill it up since I bought it. He laughed and told me that he just fills up my car each time he fills up his truck. And you know what, I'll take that over the heart-shaped box of chocolates :)

And because I don't think I've ever done a blog post without a picture, here's the Kate Spade shoes I wore on Saturday night next to Paul's shiny tuxedo shoes. We were guests at a Bat Mitzvah party and had a lot of fun with some great friends and even a little slow dancing ;)

Update: I posted this around 1pm. At around 2pm the dogs went crazy as the flower delivery man came up the drive. So not only do I get my windshield fluid taken care of but there are now 2 dozen roses looking rather lovely on the top of the piano :)


  1. Awwwww!! That is SO cute about the windshield washer fluid. Those are the thoughtful things that make you really appreciate your other half.

    Those shoes rock! Now the question is, did you get the dress?!? :)

  2. I was *hoping* that you would use that fabulous dress as a showcase for equally fabulous shoes!!! ;)

  3. AWWW...that really is so sweet and much more romantic than a box of chocolates and the flowers sent were an exceptional added bonus!

    Like the others said...THOSE SHOES DO ROCK!!! looovveee them!
