This year, we are digging into a new list of home renovations but we refuse to leave the sweetness of red, pink & white behind. We’re set to make up for our beloved, lost valentine of 2016.
Cathy + Chris
Happy housewarming! My wife’s younger cousin, Cathy, has moved to Vero Beach with her long-time steady boyfriend, Chris. They invited us over to visit their humble abode last week. Boy, does she take after us! Her house was gorgeous. Just stunning. Every little detail so adorable and humbling, including her new Valentine’s Day Heart Centerpieces.
These twenty-somethings are really doing it big and we are so proud of them. We always encouraged her to reach for the stars and never stop dreaming. She did just that with her man by her side. SO PROUD! Go pri, go pri, go pri.
Last year, my house was full of boxes from December 31, 2015 to the very beginning of February. We moved into our new house on New Year’s. We later left for a trip on January 7, 2016 for our one week road trip through Tuscany, Italy.
By the time we came back and finished unpacking everything, Valentine’s Day was long gone. We didn’t really get to decorate, even being one of our favorite holidays, the day of love.
My wife and I love to visit the dollar store right before a new holiday approaches. On a quiet Tuesday night, we took a stroll to pick up a few things to make this project. From the moment we walked in, the bags of heart picks called our names.
They seriously have way too many things for Valentine’s Day. And for me to even say that? Enough so that we were there for about two hours with our $25 budget.
For a simple holiday kickoff, we came up with Valentine’s Day Heart Centerpieces. The entire project cost a total of $4. A simple way to get festive without breaking the bank.
