Why hello everyone and Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

I think Valentine's Day is really such a silly holiday. A day to celebrate the love you have for someone whether it be a significant other, a family member, or even just a friend. I think that the love a person has for the people in their life should be shown everyday, rather than especially just one particular day. I don't think Valentine's day should be about the decadent chocolates or the biggest stuffed teddy bear, but rather showing the people in your life you care about how much they mean to you.

With that in mind, Matt and I decided not to buy each other gifts for Valentine's Day this year. This will be our fourth Valentine's Day together and each year has been something special. We used to buy each other extravagant gifts and make heartfelt homemade ones,too. This year I was just as happy though going out to eat to our favorite restaurant (Applebee's!) and watching a non-romantic movie (Paranormal Activity 2. It was fantastic by the way). Not your typical mushy gushy I love you fest, but just the way I wanted it to be nonetheless. Spending time with the person who means the most to me in my life and whom I can always count on to be by my side. Nothing is sweeter than that.

Hope you all are doing just wonderful and your lives are filled with overflowing love from others...

With much love, Lauren.

P.S. Matthew slightly broke our "no gifts" rule. He got me a single red rose because he knows they're my favorite :)

that's a great outfit... but the weather looks so cold!
i think you're right about showing love everyday rather than on one particular day... but some extra chocolates are always welcome ;)

Annebeth said...

I totally agree on valentine's, I just love spending some extra time together and doing really small things for each other rather than getting in that consumerist BS :) you look stunning!
