I’m not one to do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but I do like to do a little something as a nod to the holiday.When the kids were younger, I did much more in terms of decor and gifts. However, this year I wanted to keep it simple while still making it feel festive!
I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
I’m so excited to share this post with you as it is one of my favorites of the whole year. I’m joining some blogging friends for a very unique tour – the Christmas Nights Tour! Thank you to my friends Kristen of Ella Claire and Courtney of French Country Cottage for putting this tour together this year!
For years I kept bringing out the same Christmas decor, year after year. I never really changed much aside from adding a new ornament here and there. However, now I really relish changing things up a little. It’s amazing how a few new things, an added style, or just a new color can make it all feel so much fresher!
For a blogger who normally posts roughly twice a week, this season has sure been busy! Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing from me, as I’m sharing another holiday home tour post today. This time I’m joining the 12 Days of Holiday Homes Tour hosted by 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style, and I’m excited to show you my Soft & Subtle Christmas Front Porch!
