  1. We'll see how I feel tomorrow and then decide. ;) We're not a big "celebrate VD" kind of married couple. But I hope you and yours have a fabulous time together.

    Hugs,

  5. Wonderful post! Aside from giving each other cards, etc., my husband and I haven't really celebrated Valentine's Day since our first child was born. I was just thinking this morning that it would be nice to go out for dinner alone. Maybe someday... :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  31. Oh Jamie,

    I just adore this romantic, sweet, cheerful Valentine's Day post. Terrific roundup of items and fashions. I don't usually veer towards 60s styles, but I'd gleefully wear that red and white polka dot frock anytime.

    Thank you very much for your trio of recent blog comments, I wholeheartedly appreciate them.

    ♥ Jessica

    1. So glad you enjoyed it Jessica, thank you! Yep, my style tends to end in the 50's but I thought this was super cute. Apparently someone else did too, because it has been sold! ;-)
