I love the feeling of being in love with someone. It doesn't have to be romantic. I fall in love with my nieces, my nephews, random strangers, old friends and new friends all the time. That's why I enjoy Valentine's Day! It's fun to have an excuse to show people they are great and you like having them in your life. Also, this quote about love from Christopher Owens is pretty great.
...love is something you can make, too, and you don't have to get it back from somebody. I can just love the hell out of someone, and it's just as rewarding as if someone was very much into me. Like, I love Gene Kelly, and I can watch him on DVD whenever I feel like it. It's a wonderful thing in my life and it's real love.
So many people wait around for love to be found for them, for somebody to say, "I love you." But sometimes it's just as much fun to love somebody that doesn't even think about you or talk to you: She doesn't have to love you back, you can just think she's neat, and that's fine.
On that note, Here are my favorite posts about love and Valentine's Day! xo
I am planning a little indoor picnic with girlfriends for Valentine's Day. It is around my birthday, so it's always been fun for me to combine the two. Yes, Valentine's Day can be super annoying (I was a florist, believe me, I know) but it's also a fun excuse to show admiration for friends and loved ones and to eat chocolate. I posted about this heart cheese last year and I am trying to track some down for my picnic. I think it would be so cute on a cheese platter!

I hope your 2013 is off to a great start! I have a few things I wanted to share:
I updated my prop styling portfolio with some new commercial work. Last year was full of great projects for HGTV, New Balance, Hanna Andersson and others. I'll be adding more updates soon and I am looking forward to working on some new jobs for 2013.
We just launched a brand new advertising program for Frolic! I am really excited about the creative opportunities we have available for advertisers this year. We have a new logo done and our re-design is on the way. I can't wait for this new phase! Click here for all the info.
I've recently joined Luvocracy which is kind of fun. I am super picky about which social media I get involved with, and this was a site that sparked my interest. You can join too if you wish. Details here.
I picked up these adorable pants over the summer in Berlin (at COS) and I think they are the cutest! Who doesn't love a pair of high-waisted, Katherine Hepburn-inspired trousers? Hannah and I styled them up with a bright top from APC, a handmade hat, and suede heels. What a fun way to wear color this winter! All outfit sources, below.
