Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I love pink and red and especially hearts. I made a fun window display for the little party I threw for my girlfriends (post on that tomorrow- with yummy cupcake recipes!). Afterwards, I pulled off the “Happy 30th” and just left up the hearts. They looked so pretty in the day light.
I dipped fortune cookies in chocolate and sprinkled on colorful heart sprinkles and made a little tag to put them on that said “Your Valentine’s Day will be excellent!” I made these for my students and for Jack.

This is my Valentine’s card from Jack. I put it over the heart paper and framed it for the month because it was so cute. My mom drew me and Jack decorated with jewelry from catalogs. The rest of the card is cover in Xs and Os.
The rest of the pictures are all from my mom’s house. I love decorating for holidays, because she always decorates all out for V Day, St. Pat’s, Easter, Halloween and Christmas. I realized that I should start taking photos of all of it so that I always remember how festive and pretty it looks.
