Month of Love

Inspired by my friend whose favorite day every year is Valentine’s Day, Chris and I made February the Month of Love.

First, I made this and hung it over our fireplace:

Then I bought two little boxes and put them on either side of the mantle. Our Valentine boxes.

And I printed these adorable little notepapers so we could share our love for each other daily.

I also decorated our house a little more than usual, with a pink and red wreath from the dollar section at Target, and some cute Subway art by our wedding album.

It was so nice to be very intentional about loving each other this month, and even nicer to know that even thought Valentine’s Day is over, our month of love still has a few more days. Plus, I get to enjoy these beautiful flowers!

We brought our little Valentine into the celebrations as well.

February 2012 has been a wonderful time for Chris and I to focus on our love for each other and our “baby makes three” family.
