Day Fourteen: Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day, sweet loves! I pray that today you can enjoy all things red and pink, enjoy a treat of your choice (chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes, and macarons, oh my!), and  a little bit of sparkle.. but mostly that you know how valuable, cherished, and loved you are! Even (especially) when it may not feel like it. 


Long ago, I got it in my head that we needed a Valentines Day tradition. It wasn't intentional for our first photo.. But I wanted to hold a copy of our previous year's Valentines selfie in the next photo, and so on. Notice we skipped a year (more on our story here) but that first photo is when we are 18 years old. We'll take our most recent photo today! :) It's really fun for me to daydream about how these photos will change over the years to come. 




Update: Our 2014 photo: 



Do y'all have any special Valentines Day traditions?

Ps. You may have noticed my blog design has been refreshed! Yippeee! I've added a FAQ page to put some of the questions I am often asked via email/twitter/insta to make everyone happy! If you have any specific questions you'd like me to answer, shoot me an email (click on "contact" above) or tweet me.. whatever you want! :)

  1. Busch a cute and creative tradition! We don't have any traditions per say for valentines day but we do have a tradition of taking one photo of us at baseball games (I have to be in the right) because that was our first picture together when we were dating. xx
    Happy valentines day!

  8. Ah, such a cute tradition! My husband is Brazilian, so Valentines Day in Brazil is not until June 12th. When we were still just dating, we started the tradition of him being the one to plan and make valentine's day special for me on Feb. 14th, and I get to do the planning and surprise him on June 12th. I love your picture idea, maybe I will incorporate that into our tradition! :)
