First, Jonathan, because his birthday falls on February 1st.
Second, Valentine’s Day.
We aren’t huge celebrators of Valentine’s Day. It is more a day where I seem to think about and appreciate those I love even more. So, when I think of it I don’t think of chocolates or flowers, instead it is a reminder of how lucky I am to be loved. Therefore, we don’t decorate much for Valentine’s Day, but I thought a little touch hugs and kisses would we sweet. Here is my one Valentine decoration this year:
It was super easy to make! I will post a tutorial soon: Valentine Pillow Tutorial. (update: tutorial now available)
If you don’t know how to sew, you could still make this pillow. I made the pillow case and added the XOXO, but you could easily buy a pillow case and then add the XOXO to it without having to sew.
Here it is before I added the buttons:
And here are the buttons – love them!
In the sunroom:
And in the kitchen on our built-in benches:
I was actually taking a picture of Jonathan’s birthday breakfast here, but you can see the pillow peeking out in the upper left corner of the picture 🙂
I am not sure where it is going to stay yet, but I do know that I am in love with it!
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! Please Share it! 🙂
