show a {little} love

Ever since we began dating (over 7 years ago!) Jeff and I forged a few laws about Valentine's Day. Since it's nestled in between our birthdays, it makes for a very exciting, celebratory, & expensive week! Instead of going over board with token roses, crowded restaurants, and excess gobbily-goop, we've always agreed that V*day should be a verb, should be small, and should be full of thought and meaning. Allow me to share a few of my favorite {little} ideas for spreading the love next week:1. I made him this itty-bitty scrapbook filled with pictures of us and a bunch of little things that I love, appreciate, admire, & adore about him.

2. I'd like to craft a few of these sweet, tiny heart bookmarks

3. Bake up these delectable mini chocolate raspberry tarts.

Oh Jess, I love V-day! I was cleaning stuff out and found the box that I made for Sam years ago. Remember the fudge and the paper roses? Oh I love thinking about our dorm escapades and finding the perfect V-day gift for our sweethearts. And it's so cool that we're both married to those high school sweethearts now!
