Quote of the Week

“The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

Happy Valentine's Day, my lovelies! The first photo of today's post is of a heart shaped rock I found over the weekend while on a walk with my nieces and nephews. Talk about a crazy coincidence! I ended up giving it to my 10 year-old niece Mikaila, who has plans to give it to a boy she has a crush on :) My husband and I aren't very big into Valentine's Day, but we do have plans to stay in tonight to make dinner together and share a bottle of wine. A relaxing evening with my hubby is good enough for me! Do you have anything fun or romantic planned? xoxo - Julie

  6. What an incredible find, I'm sure he'll love it and you'll be the favourite aunt! My plan of oysters and wine went out the window when my brother asked to stay with us for the week. Oh well, cant say no to family!

  7. My partner and I are anti-gift when it comes to valentines day, however we do spend the day together. This year we took a canoe down the river in Melbourne and had a picnic on a tiny island in the middle, on the grass in the shade. And cause it was a Monday... we were the only ones! Perfect boy, perfect day, perfect food, and perfect sun tan! :P

  8. I really love your blog!!
