The most wonderful time of the year!

(I preface this post by saying I’m a theme-aholic.  I shop all year for theme-y items for themed events.  It’s a sickness… you have been warned!)
a little DIY Valentine’s Mani!

For someone who works in the wedding industry, it must not be very surprising that today’s revelation revolves around my obsession with a holiday that loves hearts, pink, and well, LOVE.  Ever since sending 100s of roses in high school, I knew I always had to commemorate this special day.  Valentine’s day isn’t just about celebrating the love of your soul mate (although that’s awesome too!) but just the love you have for everyone surrounding you.  I took it upon myself a few years ago to make sure all of my friends always felt love throughout these holidays, thus how the Valentine boxes were started

(all photos/captions courtesey my friends)     

“YOU my friend have a package" -my doorman, understandably. I love you @lissyschneider my valentine for 10 years!

Little presents fill these boxes of Valentine’s theme.  While it doesn’t cost a whole lot (PS- the shipping on these babies cost more than the contents, OOPS!) it certainly hits home with my nearest and dearest.  Plus, the box (and necessary box decorations) are F-R-E-E!

valentine's day package from @lissyschneider thank you!!!! I'm in love

Even if it’s just a card, the impact it will have will be monumental.  Who doesn’t love a little love?
@lissyschneider you are the best friend anyone could as for. Thank you so much for vday box of goodies!!

I’ll leave with my senior quote from my high school yearbook—
“Somewhere there’s someone who dreams of your smile,
And finds in your presence that life is worthwhile,
So whenever you’re lonely, remember its true—
Someone somewhere is thinking of you!”
My workshop in action!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
