ready for love

Yep, I would say I'm ready for Valentine's Day. Raleigh and I are celebrating tonight, with sushi at our favorite place, a bottle of champagne, and (finally) watching Midnight in Paris. I can't resist a theme, so today's outfit has pink AND red AND a heart print skirt...really, I couldn't help it. My roommates and I threw a "Lover's and Friends" Valentine's Day party this weekend and we had the best time celebrating all kinds of love, from boyfriends to roommates to friends to sisters! I'll share pictures tomorrow. And last night was a lazy night spent with our best guy friends: Thai takeout, leftover treats from the party, the Grammys, and some Valentine crafting--our friend Victor made the card above, how sweet is it? 

What are you doing to celebrate Valentine's Day? Remember it can celebrate any kind of love, not just the kind within a relationship. xoxo!

You'll love Midnight in Paris, I finally watched it last weekend. Good Valentine's Day movie. We go to the same restaurant every year for Valentines Day (it will be out 4th year in a row, wow!) Its small and quiet and just fancy enough to get dressed up, I can't wait!

How sweet! I love the red and pink and hearts, even if it is cliche. I hope you have a great time tonight with the boy! That card is fantastic, I almost want to steal his idea, and make one for my boyfriend :3 haha.

Oh, Midnight in Paris is amazing!
