Our Love Notes

Valentine's Day is exactly one week away, and my heart can hardly contain all of the excitement.  It's pretty obvious that I love any excuse to celebrate, and I try to take advantage of every opportunity I get.  And now that Waverly Maye can partake in of all the fun, my need for "festiveness" is totally on another level.

My head has been in "Valentine's Day" planning mode ever since the day after Christmas.  Even though I know Waverly Maye won't remember this year's celebrations, it is her first, and I want it to be extra special (just like her.)  So I got lots of heart-adorned outfits & accesories, some pink & red decorations for the house, and purchased some cute little goodies for a V-Day themed basket.


1 - Peek-A-Boo Board Book; We are really trying to get Waverly into a good bedtime routine that includes reading books each night.  Yet since at this point, she still would rather eat them than anything. So the board books are definitely the way to go.  She will find two "love-themed" books in her basket on Valentine's Day.
2 - Red and Pink Hearts Ribbon Garland;  I love garland, and find a reason to hang it for pretty much every season.  Even though I could be really domestic and make it myself, buying it for $3.00 seemed to be the better option.
3 - Intarsia Heart One-Piece;  Baby Gap clothes seriously make my heart happy.  I try to contain my newfound NEED for them and only get them on sale, but I make an exception for holidays.  Waverly's First V-Day ensemble will be this sweet one-piece from Gap. 
4 - Heart Ruffle One-Piece; OK, so I made another exception to add to Waverly's basket.  I felt that it was ok since she is going to NEED bathing suits for this summer, and the hearts made it fitting for the occasion.  It was practically a no-brainer.
5 - Cupid's Crunch; Although I will admit that my husband definitely cooks WAY more than I do, I like to bake.  I think it's something about the creativity, sweetness, and making the final product look pretty.  So I (like always) turned to Pinterest for a pink treat we could bring to our loved ones.

So those are Our Love Notes - some of the special little details to our Valentine's Day this year.
And although our priority is certainly with our baby girl these days, we will definitely add a little romance into the mix, too.  In the meantime, a sweet dose of my little Valentine ...

Waverly's headband is from Gap, outfit from Zulily, and boots from Old Navy.
