Valentine's Day in The Windy City...

On my way to work I saw a dad and his little boy putting the finishing touch on his valentine's inside Caribou Coffee. So adorable.

At work I popped a few Twix bars and sent e-valentines to family and friends. During my lunch break I took a trip to Molly's Cupcakes for one of their red velvet treats. Before leaving work for the day I ordered takeout from my local Joy's Noodles.

On the walk home I passed more than a few men carrying flowers. Couples held hands as they strolled into restaurants for a romantic evening.

Harper and I enjoyed watching the latest episode of Hart of Dixie while I savored my Phad Thai. I watched "Valentine's Day" while I did my dishes.

Before going to bed I had a fabulous Skype date with my high school bestie, Miss Keely Coxon. I love that girl so much.

Valentine's Day 2012...the best day of my otherwise crappy week.

Wednesday Wisdom ~ Valentine's Day Style

I found this quote to be fitting considering that Valentine's Day will soon be upon us. Even though I'm single, I actually love Valentine's Day. I love all the pink and red, hearts everywhere, and of course...Valentine's Day cards! There's something special about a handwritten note. We all need a little love reminder every once in awhile. After all, love is responsible for true joy.
