Valentine’s day is such a tricky day to manoeuvre around; whether you’re single or in a long-term monogamous relationship. You have to talk about it and deal with it even if you’re not celebrating it. I am an equal opportunity chocolate consumer, so besides the extra cute cards with hearts, the chocolate has always been a favourite of mine.
In our PMQ February is synonymous with LOVE. My husband and I got legally married on february 8th, and we had our first date on a february 25th. Smack dab in the middle is Valentine’s day, so you could say that february is full of love for us. Although DH is perpetually confused about anniversaries and choses to only honour our wedding day (in August), we try to make the month of February a little special. Dinner, flowers, gifts and cute love notes to each other. It’s the sum total of all the small things, not a big expensive dinner on the 14th that make it special, especially since we won’t be together on the 14th this year.
This year we’ve chosen to celebrate 14 days of love. At some point throughout the month I have to receive 14 letters/tokens/signs of his love, and vice versa. We’ve got this adorable little red tin mailbox that sits on the front entryway table, and that’s where we leave each other hints and such.
Because our SOs can always use a hint or two, I’ve created my valentine’s day wish list. You can get these all on etsy to celebrate your very own 14 days of love. Feel free to share the list with your SO *Wink wink*

Mistress Of Disguise- Open Edition Print from Janet Hill

YSL Leopard Loafers Watercolor Print 8 x 10″, 11 x 14″ from The Aestate
I love this print dearly. In fact, I would love to have an entire wall in my house dedicated to prints of shoes and accessories, but I think that will have to wait until we own our own home and I can have a large closet or boudoir of sorts.
The Monarch Calendar from Rifle Paper Co.
Who wouldn’t love this mini desk calendar? The ladies are beautifully drawn and the prints can be re-used once the month is up.
