The One With the Valentine's Day Preparedness (1)

Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorites. I mean, what's not to love? All the pink? All the chocolate? All the adorable Valentine's cards and gifts?

When Steve and I were first dating our freshman year of college he remarked on our first Valentine's Day together, "Ahh... Valentine's Day. A day when everyone else pretends to be as in love as we are." Of course it made me weak at the knees back then and still does.

So in honor of this most lovely holiday, the rest of this week I'll be posting about Valentine's Day! Yay!

Although I love this holiday, it has been a little less at the forefront of my mind this year as we get ready to welcome our new little one. She's due in less than a month and I still have lots of things to get ready for her - not the least of which is ordering the art for her nursery. You may recall the mood board I put together for her Woodland Nursery featuring lovely art from the very talented Kit at Trafalgar's Square on Etsy.com. It is just too adorable. Well, Kit has added some beautiful Valentine's prints to her collection. Check them out at her blog Lullaloo. The SweetHeart Badge set is too cute for words. And! She's having a giveaway, so check it out!

And speaking of cute, here's a picture of Ellie as Cupid for last Valentine's Day. I wonder if she'll let me get any good pictures this year...
I'll be back soon with some cards and gifts and possibly some more Valentine's Day picks from Etsy... because everyone should be spending their money there. They have much better gifts there than all those silly flower websites. I mean, seriously, who would feature a Justin Bieber Fan gift set. It doesn't even make sense.
