valentine

be mine. ❤️

Hi friends! Can we all agree that January was the longest month ever? We welcomed February with open arms and 😍 because Valentine’s Day is upon us! And who doesn’t love LOVE?

The first step in prepping for Valentine’s Day was to order cards for James’ class. Minted has been my go-to for paper goods since 2013. Save the dates, Christmas cards, VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS. They have the best designs and highest quality products hands down.

Last year was James’ first Valentine’s Day and I wanted to send a little love to his baby class at school. These pouches + berry cards were a huge hit. And let’s take a second to look back at my Valentine one year ago:

This Emily & Merritt crib sheet from Pottery Barn is one of my favorites.
Can’t take the sweetness.

Now for this years Minted Valentine’s Cards in 3 2 1…

And Goldfish for good measure.
All wrapped up with a little twine.

Over the years, my home decorating style has evolved from a strictly neutral palette (cream, black and khaki – classic to be sure, but also pretty boring) to one with more and more colors (a little green here, some turquoise there). Over the last year, I’ve added a few red and pink accents to my home. Here, my two faves.

Red Jenny Lind Bed
inspired by this Land of Nod catalog photo, i painted joe jr’s Jenny Lind bed from Target red. bed no longer available.
Robert Abbey Gourd Lamp
this robert abbey gourd lamp sits in my living room next to a stack of books.

And now, a few things on my To Buy list. Joe, stop reading.

For Like Ever
i’ve wanted this poster for…like…ever. buying it!
Red Metal Chairs
wouldn’t these be perfect on your patio for this summer? they’re on SALE.
West Elm SMEG Refrigerator
west elm smeg refrigerator. just, love.
Fucshia Chevon Rug
this land of nod fuchsia chevron rug would be amazing in a neutral kitchen OR funky office.
