Happy Valentine’s Day, friends. Whether or not you go all out on this holiday, I hope you have a lovely day with those you love.
We don’t typically celebrate Valentine’s Day at NewlyWoodwards, but this year, we invited a few friends over to our house for supper and games on Saturday night to celebrate the holiday of love.
It was a lot of fun and I hope to make it a tradition. I only took a few photos of the red and white decorations I pulled out right before the guests arrived.
February snuck up on me, so I’m glad I had an excuse to bring them out. (And clean the house, but that’s another post for another day.)
We served salad, lasagna and garlic french bread. Our friends brought appetizers and pie and then we played a rousing game of Apples to Apples. (I still can’t believe that Shannon doesn’t like the game and gave it away… Crazy talk. We love it.) Some wine and Coors Light was on hand and we were in bed by 10 p.m.
Perfect Valentine’s Day.
And, to make it the best Valentine’s Day in history, here’s a sneak peak at my favorite Valentine’s Day flowers of all time.
15 black hexagon daisies set in the floor in our newly-tiled bathroom. Ryan told me that these were the best kind of flowers to give, because I will see and admire them every day. And they’ll never die.
I’m obsessed with this floor and can’t wait to tell you more about it once it’s been grouted. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t all roses and chocolates. I may
or may not have found my husband curled into the fetal position on the cement board floor at some point during the process.
Nothing better than a near-nervous breakdown to remind you why you love each other. Unconditional acceptance.
How are you celebrating the day of love?
