Valentine’s Day 2019
Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone!
If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, it will be no surprise to you that I love Valentine’s Day. Every year, on Valentines I send cards, bake a heart shaped cake, wear pink, and spend time with my family eating the aforementioned cake. This year was no different! I was originally planning on posting yesterday, sharing the cards that I made this year, but then I decided to include a picture of the card my sister got me, because it was too cute to not share!
These are the cards I made this year.
And this is the card my sister got me! So adorable- it’s definitely getting framed and hung on my wall! The artist is Jane Carkill of Lamb Little Illustration– she has the sweetest illustrations!
Can’t have a proper Valentine’s Day without chocolate and hearts!
And lastly- I bought myself some flowers on Wednesday, because it’s February and winter seems like it has no end, it was Valentine’s Day, and why not? They do cheer up the place and I smile every time I look at them.
Did you do anything special for Valentine’s Day?

What beautiful cards and flowers! Since we’ve moved to a more wintry climate, I’ve found that you really do need festive occasions when you are buried in snow. Those flowers are perfect to lighten up dreary weather. Your photographs are always so beautiful!
This year was a really simple holiday for my husband and me: our neighbor is very ill, so I made twice as much dinner and we took it over to her family. My parents and a friend brought us treats, so we felt loved and remembered.

I agree- it is amazing what a boost of energy a bouquet of flowers can give you! 🙂
I’ve always thought of Valentines’s Day as a celebration of all forms of love- not just romantic. Bringing dinner to your neighbours sounds like a perfect way to show some love to them.

That is such a delightful set of cards you created! And, yes, I don’t blame you for waiting to share your sister’s card! Because it is adorable and hilarious! Also, your cake looks AMAZING!!! And delicious!
We were slated to go to Disneyland, as is our tradition, but heavy rains (like two inches within a couple of hours) kept us home!

Thanks Janey! I enjoy crafting, and Valentine’s Day is such a great excuse to do so 🙂
That’s too bad that the rains kept you away from Disneyland! (That’s a crazy amount of rain!) Hopefully you were able to still enjoy your time at home and will be able to go out soon!

What beautiful cards you made. The cake looks delicious. We had a cake and cupcakes with strawberry jell-o. We exchanged cards and gave small gifts to each other. Your sister’s card is adorable.
HAPPY BELATED VALENTINE’S DAY
