Happy Day of Love

14 Feb

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I can’t help but think of this day one year ago when my mother and aunts worked extra hard to make me feel very loved.

My family put together a bridal shower for me on Valentine’s Day last year and it was the best day ever!

I have never felt so much love as I did that day.  It was an absolutely amazing day!

Here are a few shots from the day that I will never forget.

My aunt Elaine even made the chicken pot pies heart shaped and tinted them pink.

How awesome is that!?

The place setting for each guest.  Very elementary Valentine’s Day =)

My amazing family.

Can not forget my uncle and Luis too!

It was a day filled with love.

And now that Valentine’s is here, I can stop being so mushy.  No more posts with pink or hearts!

Can’t forget my other love!

Haha.. love his face as he is about to attack me.

I miss him… I miss you… I miss everyone!

Hoping to make a visit home soon! Love you!

And… it’s done

I hung the last of the paper hearts last night and I am now ready for the day of love to come.

I am sure Luis is ready for it to come too so he can take all of the hearts down.  Too bad that my plan is to keep the hearts up until May.

Why May? Because that is when Luis and I got married. Gotta keep the love going until then, no?

Oh and I did something with that one blank wall in our dining room.

I added the capriz and diamante beaded curtains that I bought for “the wedding that never happened” which I think looks great in this small area.  It makes the dining area feel more cozy and it gives it a kind of a restaurant feeling.   All we are missing is the booth!

Not a bad transformation from what the dining room use to look like…

Next up!  The living room.  Well, one day.
