I've always loved excuses to celebrate. And, even though some people think Valentine's Day is "made-up" (yeah, yeah, yeah) I still love the chance to spoil the people who mean the most to me.
Tonight, Zach and I are skipping the madness and staying in. We're exchanging little gifts, popping a bottle of champagne, and making our favorite Tomato & Burrata Salad. Then, I'm hoping to convince Zach to watch a chick flick (or two!) with me. Tomorrow night, we'll go out for a nice dinner... I might even put on a fancy dress! It's gonna be fuuuuuun.
What about you? Are you staying in or going out?
In the spirt of the holiday, I collected a few of the Valentine's Day links that have made me happy today. I hope you enjoy:
My favorites are "The TMI" and "The Watch Your Back."
Zach and I gave up desserts for lent, so we can't do the chocolate-thing tonight. But everyone else should read about the 9 secrets to tasting chocolate before you splurge.

Single friends, no matter how much you hate this day - PLEASE don't resort to Craigslist.
Need a quick, easy, and super cute way to wrap up that V-Day gift? Look no further than The House That Lars Built.
My adorable friend Ann & her fiance are so happy in love. I, on the other hand, am in love with that pink wall!
These shoes are crazy! (But awesome.)
The funnest alternative to strawberries dipped in chocolate.
Festive nail art that looks simple enough for butterfingers like me to try.
Sending you lots of love. xoxo
