Spring and Valentines







These images not only have me thinking of spring, but of Valentines as well. Yes, I think kindly towards this holiday, not because I'm one for chocolates and roses on demand, but rather because I like all the pink, I like the little Valentine notes, I like the bubbly. Andrew and I have rarely celebrated Valentines on the 14th, it usually gets pushed to the weekend after. But, as it's on a Saturday this year, maybe we'll do something sweet... maybe. I'm thinking a long walk, maybe a latte, some shnuggling... okay, that's what we do every weekend!

How sweet are you guys :) I love the bubbly of this holiday as well. The one time of the year I'm all about the cheesy. And the strawberries and custard!

Rachel said...

I am all about the pink and the bubbly! These images are lovely. I'm officially dedicating all next week to V-day prettiness on my blog, just because I love it so much.

Wonderful photos- chocolate, raspberries and other sweetness!
I'll be away for a "girls-get-away" poor planning date-wise. But we'll call home and celebrate with some bubbly!

valentines day is another holiday that gets pushed to the back burner because of the hubby's job. he writes and directs a dinner theater for the church every year. it's huge so i don't really mind:)

What about strewing rose petals on your walk and adding some chocolate covered strawberries to your latte.
As always love your images.

I love Valentines for all the pink too ♥

dwellings and decor said...

You are too cute. Pink is your favorite color? I never would have guessed. ;)

Brittany Noel said...

Hahaha! That's what we do every weekend too! Beautiful photos, they have me thinking even more of spring too! I'm not sure what we'll be doing for Valentine's, probably just spend the day together. Except when I'm working at school. Or at Sbux, if I'm scheduled...

Callie Grayson said...

you are too cute!!
these images make me hungry for sweet raspberries! i have been into smoothies lately with berries and yogurt. (i am trying to eat more fruit) and these images are packed with pretty fruit.
mmmmmm

Lindello said...

Hmm...what will me & mr.lindello do valentines day? Maybe make a yummy breakfast together & lounge around in our pj's all day...it would be fun to get dressed up & go somewhere nice also. I guess it will just depend on our mood! Lovely photo's!

Chocolate and Steel said...

I feel like I need some lemonade while looking at these pictures. It all looks delightful.

Lyssa said...

paula said...

ambika said...

That shot of the blackberries is so sweet--and tempting! We rarely do more than dinner for vday--& never have enough forethought to get reservations more than a couple of days in advance.

Caroline @ Absolutely Unique said...

Oh Julia, those pictures are SO cute! I love berries. In fact I have some... I should cook a little something sweet with them...
