favorite things: Valentine's day edition

I'm in the mood for love.  Well, honestly I'm in the mood for the sun on my skin and the swimming pool, but pretty things in pink and sugary treats will do for the moment...

 Tulips are simply perfect on the mantel  after busy Christmas decorations are put away.

Strawberry and Chocolate puts me in the mood{for more strawberries and chocolate...what did you think I was talking about?}

It's important to tell the people{or coffee} in your life how much you love them.

The most glorious shade of pink.

My dad is getting married this summer{oh yes he is!} and shades of pink are requested in what we wear.  My older sister encouraged me to start shopping now{thank you older sister}, am I ever glad I did.  This Banana Republic dress should be on it's way to my house.  On sale and sure to please the bride{thinking turquoise jewelry}.  I am clearly influenced by my house plants.

Happy {early} Valentine's Day!

Tulips and Graeters and lovely dresses all in one post?! I love it. Congrats to your dad, that is great. I love the dress you picked. And turquoise will look so perfect. I often pair it with red and it looks so well, pretty. I think the pink will be fabo! Please post a photo of you all dolled up, I need inspiration.
