i loooove this time of year

I love Valentines Day decorations, they always make my February so much brighter and happier. I love covering everything in hearts (not that I don't year-round anyway...), and throughout this month it feels like the world has caught up to my style and is playing along. Not to mention my birthday is the day after valentines day!! A lovely month indeed.


 this valentine book wreath!!


ps - i reeeeeeally want to find a yurt hotel or awesome canvas tent hotel like these!!

matt organized a wonderfull valentines day photo shoot for us yesterday! it was a grand surprise, i think we scared the first year photographers. :)
ooooooohhhhh photos of people you loooove!

no electricity!

tuesday night our power went out... and has yet to come back.
the first night it was already late so we just went to bed - and took showers in the dark in the morning. yesterday the apartment owner and handyman tried to fix it but had no luck, so they ran an extension cord from the vacant apartment next-door to our kitchen for our refrigerator. They also offered us the next-door apartment to sleep and shower in if we wanted (power! and lights....). so we did!

we dragged over tones of pillows and blankets, and watched It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. quite the night.
hopefully we have our power back today... we'll see
we have learned to appreciate electricity, you miss it when it's gone...
plus my icecream sandwiches melted in the freezer yesterday!!!! :(

frye is magic

over the holidays my first pair of frye boots came into my life and now i'm sold. i found them at nordstroms rack for only $70(originally $250), but how will i ever afford another pair!!! like these??? beautiful boots.
