anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.


How did you celebrate Valentine's Day this year?

My Valentine's was nice and low-key. Since my boyfriend isn't big on the holiday in general, it was up to me to take the reins. All I wanted was to spend the night with him and show him how much he means to me. So, I cooked him dinner - a heart shaped pizza! I spoiled him with food (even though I am not the world's best cook). Everything actually turned out pretty well. It was all the romance I needed! 

As for the picture posted above: It has been saved on my computer for ages, and given the time of year, I simply had to post it! I love that fairy tale moment, her big poufy dress, and of course, that perfect kiss. What scene could be more romantic?

And, since I am in an especially romantic mood at the moment, I leave you with a quote from my favourite poet.

"Familiar acts are beautiful through love."
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

What are your plans for the weekend?
