valentine's party.

we had a little valentine's party the saturday before.
here were the table decorations...
delicious dinner.
and here are our photobooth pictures.
we decided to cover a wall in streamers.
this was by far my favorite photobooth.
i made lips, bow-ties, mustaches and glasses on a stick.
i made these take home bags of m & m's for everyone
along with a bottle of cherry limeade!
it was a successful night for sure!

fingers crossed.

love this cookie idea via aesthetic outburst.

but, i really do hope that is the case!

this year's valentines.

i {love} valentine's. i love the colors, hearts, and
just it's purpose to tell those that you love just
what they mean to you.

now i don't feel like you should be limited to only
be able to do this one day a year, but i like
any reason to craft and celebrate.

this year i had the luxury of having time to craft
and make several valentine's i had been inspired by.

i saw this idea last year via mer mag.
these were some my own creations. some were inspired by things i saw online.
after seeing this via a beautiful mess, i knew i had to make my own!
and this was my own little idea for my valentine in TN...
hope your day was as {love}ly as mine.

lemon poppyseed bread.

my roommate in college's mom used to bake us
lemon poppyseed bread.
i had never really been a fan before trying this recipe,
but it is absolutely delicious!

song of the day [02.17].

loving the beat.

chocolate thumbprints.

i'm just getting around to posting this recipe on my baking blog.
these cookies were so good. i've never used a recipe that called for
whipped cream, but i think it really added some flavor!
try them yourself here.
