I love holidays, all of them really. I love to dream and plan & get inspired from pictures like these above ( bhg and country home). Then real life steps in and about all I manage to accomplish is this sad little display below. I did manage to make Valentines for my family. Barely. It seems I'm always running behind, chasing a holiday and not getting the things done that I want to. I'll do better next year. Or not.
Then as if dreaming about all the craft and decorating possibilities isn't enough, I start planning all the lovely special food I will make like these pictured below (from southern living, southern accents, sunset magazine).
The reality is going to be heart shaped pizza, angel food cake w/whipped cream and strawberries and heart shaped brownies. And really they are lucky to get that afterall, shouldn't I be going out for dinner tonight?
