Love Is . . . *

In honor of today, I wanted to take a moment to quickly express some of the things that I love. I should probably start by stating that I don’t believe in “V-Day”. I think it’s absolutely absurd to dedicate a sufficient amount of love into just one day. Love is something that should be given daily, hourly. It’s what keeps us alive, patient, personal and imperfect as people. To love is to be honest. Honest is what I would like to be today, and every day. Honest and in love.

If anything, today is about being in love. Maybe it’s not a person, to many it doesn’t have to be! We glamorize this day as a reason to celebrate intimacy and affection, to share it with another person. Why? Why not just celebrate everything we love?  I feel if I’m going to celebrate this day, I will celebrate all aspects of love and today I’m lucky in love in plenty of ways. . . .

While I have SO many other things I love (this blog could literally go on forever), I just wanted to make the point that today isn’t about WHO you spend it with, but how you spend it. Spend today being thankful for what you have in your life, what you love. Because don’t “They” always say it’s the little things? Love today, everyday, and every little moment that matters, but most importantly; #Love Yourself. 

What Do You Love?

Cheers!

Free Valentine Prints! *

So typically I’m not a huge fan of “V-day”. To be honest, all I’ve ever hoped for was an excuse to get my hands on some chocolate covered strawberries. . . . like seriously. As if I couldn’t eat them any other day of the year, V-day is an excuse to eat not only 3 or 4, but a dozen. All at once. #NoShame. Hell I don’t even care for the fancy ones, I’ll make them myself. Just buy me some Dolci Frutta and I’ll dip those babies myself. . . . damn, then I can eat a whole pint of berries! You think I’m lying? Ask my husband (or anyone that lived with me in college), shit’s not even normal.

Anyhow, in honor of the people that DO care about such a worthless Hallmark Holiday, I’ve decided to provide you all with some free prints for the special occasion. A “V-day” gift from me to you- I typically sell prints on my Etsy Page but in honor of such a stupid romantic holiday, I decided to “share the love” so feel free to print these little monsters out and decorate the shit out of your homes. #ThankMeLater.

FREE V-day Prints

All of these prints are placed on a chalkboard backdrop for that rustic, charming feel I know you’re all going for. . . Or at least I was, when I made them. If you hate them, I’m sorry. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait until “V-Day” 2015 for my next installment of love. But seriously, LIKE THEM!
