valentines 2014!

happy LOVE day!
the best holiday of them all.
see our valentines past...
2013 // 2012 // 2011 // 2010

i thought it would be hard to top last year's valentines
when we were headed to paris and rome, but this
year we are headed to spain and it just keeps
getting better! i think i like this valentines tradition, 
because what's more romantic than a trip together?
in my book, nothing. but, i do still like to get my 
valentine a few little gifts to let him know 
how much i love him on this love day!
^^ i couldn't wait to give him his gift this morning, 
had it waiting on the bed when he woke up!
i finally finished our 2013 yearbook and also got
him a polo shirt {his favorite thing on earth} to wear
on our trip! i picked it up in las vegas on our girls
trip a few weeks ago and couldn't resist because
i knew it would look darling with his blue eyes.
^^ announcement: i am never buying a greeting card
from the store again. treat is where it's at!
i made this online in 5 minutes and it shipped
to me 2 days later. such a better and more
personal way to do cards on special occasions!
cards are the best part of gifts, and these are
the perfect cards for birthdays, valentines, etc.
i'm addicted and have already made a few
for some upcoming birthdays and events,
so get ready to see more in the future!

^^ i always have to make a valentines treat..
even though these aren't pink or heart-shaped,
they stole my heart haha! may have had 3 today...
^^ cute valentine from my parents!
^^ darling valentines package from chase's mom,
she filled this entire tube with juju heart candies! :)
i hope everyone is having a day filled with love,
whether romantic or with friends, or family, or your dog,
there is love in the air today so soak it up! 
^^^^^ yay!!! we are off to europe tomorrow morning
for the real celebration! happy valentines day!



  1. I decided to check out Treat for a card for my upcoming anniversary with my guy. Under $4 shipped for a beautiful, personal card full of our own pictures. Amazing! Thank you for the tip. :)

    1. so glad you used it! i'm addicted, i've been making birthday cards months in advance haha! he will love it. Xo

  2. Ahhhh, I've always wanted to go to Portugal!! I've been to Spain! How do you guys afford all these trips?! I don't mean that rudely. I'm legitimately curious, because I've been to a lot of countries, but trips get pricey and life is full of bills and such.

    1. of course you can ask that!! we obviously put travel as a big priority so we save up for it, we also use credit card reward programs to get air miles which is how we are flying for this trip! our blog also helps us pay for travel, and we are very thrifty on our travels and every day lives so we can have lots of adventures while we're young :)
      i'll do a post on the skymiles programs soon! xo

    2. Sounds great!! I look forward to reading it. :)

  3. Such a cute card! And those donuts...yumm! Happy Valentine's Day, girl! Have a great trip!

  4. I cant even wait for your recap post on spain and portugal!! Hope you have the most wonderful time and thanks so much for sharing the website for personalized cards!! Love it!

  5. Happy Valentine's Day!! Have a blast in Europe! :-)

  7. Emi, what do you use to do your 'yearbook' for each year?
