The art of the heart

A few things I love

I'm sure most of you are in the midst of your Valentine's Day planning (or planning to avoid Singles Awareness Day all-together). Personally, Gus and I are planning a day trip to Santa Barbara and probably skipping the presents this year in favor of the gift of spending time together and reflecting on our relationship.

If we were doing physical gifts, I think I'd want to do some kind of Valentine's-inspired art or make something "from the heart." I found some great projects/inspiration across the web for this so if you're looking for that idea light bulb- hopefully I can spark it today! Enjoy :)
