Valentines day count down

I don't expect to get anything special this Valentine's day, not because we don't want to get each other gifts  it's just that they never happen.
Flowers are always waiting for me when I get home from work, and I have about half an hour to admire them before we go out for dinner.
Sometimes we exchange gifts, and when we do, they're kind of, odd.
I got Y a Moby CD a few years ago. Another year I bought him a gingerbread man. One year I gave him a flask. Last year I think I bought him a magazine. I'm horrible.
Throughout the year I always give him little/big presents, whenever I see something I know he'll love, I can't help it. I also can't save it in my closet and wait for a "special day" to give it to him. Some months he gets super awesome presents just because.
Every year though, a few weeks before Valentine's day I "wake up" and start panicking about what to get. That's how I end up with such strange presents. I think Y will be getting a chocolate heart this year.

So, some ideas for next year? Better start planning now!

Combing through my etsy favorites, I didn't come up with that much. Mostly I have stuff I'd like to get. But every now or then I find something that obviously made me think of Y when I clicked that little heart.

I think it was during the first year we were living together that I bought him/us a piece of art for the home. I think that's a nice tradition as well, there's so much I want to buy for the walls, that maybe this is a good time and reason. I've been eyeing Amy Sullivans prints for a long time, and I know Y will appreciate them as well.

I could never finish a quilt or blanket and keep it a surprise for Y. This will be another one of those "just-because" presents during the year. I think that will looks sweet and homey in our bedroom.

Snuggling up to a good romantic movie. Could Moonrise Kingdom be though of as romantic? Whatever it is, it was sweet and made me feel gooey inside.
That's totally possible to do this year.

I guess I have a few more days to think about it, and if I see a must-buy, Y might even get something materialistic this year.
But really, a big hug and snuggle, is enough ♥

I really, but REALLY want these shoes.

I haven't heard of this series before, but now I've got to!

Beautiful, unconventional self-portraits.

Rebekka Seale is awesome.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Hi! Just stumbled upon your blog. Enjoyed reading it :)
    And you're to horrible!
    We don't really celebrate valentines day. Think it's just some marketing thing really. This year I won't even be with my hubby (I'm in Europe for holidays and he's working in Africa; I'm probably the horrible one!). I much prefer buying him gifts anytime in the year when I see something I know he'll like.
    Have a great week!
