Too Lazy to Decorate for Valentines Day

Hi All! 

I hope you had a wonderful, chocolate eating, rose smelling, love filled day yesterday! 

I was a little bit lazy this year with my Valentine decor. (Ahem...every year, actually.)
I did manage to throw a few hearts up on the mantel, and I made some fun heart wreaths for the front entry, from things I had on hand. 

 My new-ish pup Romeo is peeking out the door at me. He's a rescue. Half German Shepard, half Yellow Lab. (My son tells people that he's half Lamb!) He's still in full on puppy mode. We call him the shredder. He can destroy a new toy in a day! He's totally frisky and adorable.
 I realize now that I am looking at these photos, that I am very lame indeed! Oh well. Life is for living, and I have vowed this year, to be less worried about perfection, and more focused on enjoying life.

My ivy topiaries are just barely hanging on. We've had some really cold nights this winter in SoCal.

Now, on to the mantel. I did warn you that is was LAZY decorating...so just keep that in mind! 
  I just threw up some greenery I had in a cabinet and a few cardboard hearts, and changed out the scrabble messages for Valentine's Day.


Then I decided to add a roll of burlap ribbon, since it looked a little bare. I can't believe I am even showing you this!  






I also helped with my son's school Valentine's Day party yesterday. It was so fun to see the kids so excited! (Sorry I can't show photos of their sweet faces!)

We had fun setting up while they were outside playing. When they came in we had food, games, crafts, and they passed out the Valentines they made for each other.
Then we cleaned up while the kids sat in closing circle with their teacher.

My son made me a GIANT Valentine. I love that boy!




And then, just to be on the safe side, to make sure I knew how much he loved his mama, he made me a small one too!

That is what life is all about, I tell ya!

Hope your Valentine's Day was just as sweet.

  43. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which
    I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out
    there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
