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!
Recently, I was offered the opportunity to write a blog post for the online magazine, Holl and Lane. They wrote me inquiring about the re-do I had done of my daughter’s bedroom, taking it from a toddler room to a teen girl room. And I was more than happy to oblige! If you aren’t already familiar with Holl and Lane, it’s an online magazine and blog, run by and written by women. They touch on all kinds of subjects; decor, food/recipes, parenting, health, and more. So I’m sharing with you the post that I shared with them…..
