Lots of you came up with some great Valentine favorites [makes me remember that Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all Hallmark-y], but since there can only be one winner, here she is. Congrats to Kathryn who had this to say…
I think my favorite part is more of a favorite memory. When we were young, my Mom had us convinced that there was a valentine genie! She had this canister that we would rub the night before valentines day and say “eanie meanie, valenteenie!” and then in the morning there would be treats from the genie. I know, it sounds really weird and crazy but it was so fun as a little kid! Even after we outgrew the genie, my Mom always made sure that the day was special even if my brother and I didn’t have a significant other.

I love the florals in this wedding by inBloom Events + Design…especially that moss covered J+P and the galvanized tin centerpieces. A very affordable alternative if you’re thinking about doing your own arrangements!
