At Home in Tuscany

I have a fantasy that I have a house in Tuscany.
It is located outside a quaint and quiet old village.
The driveway makes you feel like you are entering another world. 
And when you get there, it looks like this. 
I go there at least once a year for a month or two. 
It is the perfect mix of old and new. 
It is set on the most perfect hill in Tuscany. 
With amazing views on all sides. 
Paradise.
Maybe someday I'll at least get to see a place like this.

Spring Pink

 Spring is officially here in my neck of the woods!
And I am loving it!
So excited for flowers. 
For pretty pinks. 
This color just embodies spring to me.
Everything soft and sweet and new.
Love this color paired with light greens - it works in so many ways: outfits, rooms, photographs.  Probaby because it works so well in nature. 
Don't you just want to touch it!?
Pink, Soft, Pretty, Spring.

Kid's Valentine's Day Ideas

I wanna make these with my 3 year old.  I used to love makin these when I was little!! 
Love this decoration idea!  Not only is it totally cute, it's something I could make with my kids.  I love it when things made by little hands turn out actually looking cute! :)  Check out {How About Orange} for the how-to.
Seriously, awesome idea.  But try to use caramel filled chocolates, cause rolo's are the best.  You just put a chocolate on top of a pretzel and heat them in the oven for like 5 mintues, then press an m&m into the center.  Love this sweet and salty snack!! 
And another great kid craft idea that actually turns out looking cute!!  Love this idea from {Book House Craft Projects}

Family Valentine Dinner

Ya know, I don't know how realistic it is to assume I'm always gonna get a date on Valentine's Day now that I have kids at home.  That's why I loved this idea from {The Creativity Room}!
A Family Valentine Dinner. 
Complete with "Love" centerpiece! :) 
She served mini heart shaped pizzas with heart shaped pepperonis on them. 
Did you know you could buy heart shaped pasta!!?  This is another idea that I thought would be fun.  Just add it to your favorite tomato soup recipe.
You could finish the night off with any heart shaped desserts - there are tons of ideas on my blog alone!  Or you could try this fun idea from {Pinch My Salt}.  Don't they look cute!!?  Great breakfast idea, too.
Happy Valentine's Day!

I Love You ABC's

I thought this was a really cute and meaningful Valentine's Day gift idea.
A book of ABC's, with each letter being something you love about that someone. 
It would be a great gift for anyone, spouses, children, parents, grandparents.  I think anyone would love to hear great things about themselves! ;) 
Visit {Somewhat Simple} for all the details on how she made this thing!

I just love all the elements of this party table!!
The fun gold stripes, the black chargers, the pokadot plates, the red flowers! 
It's just so fun and sophisticated! 
And don't you just love those napkin bows!!!  I love the way they look on the pokadot plates with the gold stripes laying beneath.  So fun!
