    Valentine’s day should always be special….not that every other day is not, but just saying –
    Love is to be shared and professed…a card…some flowers…chocolate….candles…fragrance…or a new studio for me counts for all the other days ahead.

    Beautiful choices!! Your flowers are simply without compare! The Dior and Bulgari aren’t bad either!!

    My husband is the kind of guy that doesn’t like to buy into all the hype. He likes to do all that stuff on the days that aren’t expected. He’s being pretty soft these days and I can’t complain about what I think he has in store 🙂 I do adore that RING, it’s incredible!! And all the flowers…it’s fun to get fresh 😉 XO

      Q and Hamptontoes – though our flowers are very realistic, these beautiful bouquets are fresh from Jayson Home in Chicago.

    Can I just give you Grant’s email? He looked at me last night with concern and said, “are we exchanging gifts?” I told him YES we were. Poor guy. He needs a personal shpper. You would do nicely!!!

    That Dior ring is amazing! I definitely wouldn’t turn Cupid away bearing any of these lovely gifts =)

    Blooms usually appear for Valentine’s Day. I’d happily accept any of your choices today!
