Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays- making and receiving Valentine's is a major part of the fun. (I'm a paper crafter through and through).
For Valentine's Day this year we decided to pair dinner and a movie (after seeing this idea on Tracy's blog). We watched Back to the Future 3. As Back to the Future 3 was partly set in western United States in 1885, we tried to have foods that would have been had then. I don't know if this is historically accurate, but we had steak with grilled onions, rotisserie chicken, artichoke, corn, baked potato, and a biscuit for dinner, and custard pie for dessert. Historically accurate or not, it was delicious.
I gave Jesse this "You're￼ my favorite husband" card along with a favorite cologne. We also promised we'd go on 12, monthly dates this year. I got an arrangement of beautiful flowers as you can see above. That picture of us was taken in Idyllwild, CA a few years ago. See here.
My sister Jasmine guest posted this month sharing 12 Dates // A Valentine's Day or Anniversary Gift Idea. That's what inspired our 12, monthly dates promise.

This month I reopened my etsy shop, and took a stroll down memory lane sharing various, artistic kits I've put together over the years. See that post here:
This is one of the limited kits I'm currently offering in my etsy shop:
I feel it was a productive month. As far as my goals for February, this is how I did:
This was a dense post. If you made it this far, good job. ;)
See you tomorrow for Five on Friday. (It's almost Friday!)
