The One Day We Get Permission To Love

When I was three years old, my grandpa died.  On Valentine's Day.  So maybe it seems a bit crazy for me to be infatuated with everything pink and red (even though my mom's been telling me forever that they clash) and sugary.  I love hearts and glitter and I love love.  So although I think about my grandpa even more than usual on this day, (yeah, I was three, but I spent a LOT of time with him, so I remember quite a bit.  Kind of unbelievable, especially because of my awful memory now) I like to surround myself with paper crafts and pretties and candy.  It's no longer a time for sadness, even at the cemetery.

Valentines Day
Doing this!
valentines day
valentines day gift?
Someday I'll have these.
These are usually a pretty big part of my V Day.  But I really am partial to the larger ones.
I miss making these!
Love it!  This is kind of like this tutorial (which I found via Apple Blue via The Dainty Squid, of course) <3  
I'd love to start this project.
Valentines Day Flowers
These are the only kind of flowers I want this year.

I feel like this would be a good investment.  Yeah it's ridiculous and no it won't stop me.

Of course I had to see what Tori had to say about the fashion aspect...I think I'll opt for some red leggings and a pink dress.  Or perhaps the opposite.  Either way, I'll be spending some money on a lovely new outfit.

Speaking of love...

This Etsy shop is AMAZING.

I'm not too old for Build-A-Bear.  Just sayin'.
And this one's for Grandpa George <3  
I loooooove red velvet cake!  I found the best cupcakes at Walgreens.
