"52 reasons I love you"...Happy Valentines Day (Posted by Val)

"I love you today because..." is a line I started using a while ago with the Engineer. Mainly because we became so busy in our lives that sometimes we forgot to say "I love you!".  The sentences were pretty basic like "I love you today because you saw I was tired, took care of the kids and let me sleep in" but they were important because they emphasised how much we appreciated each other and that the 'little things' can make such a difference in life.

52 reasons I love you is a DIY book I found on pinterest which celebrates the beautiful day of St Valentine. Readers, how (or rather do you) celebrate Valentines Day?

Sweet Little Birdy did a Valentines Day shoot with NFE Design a little while ago and I thought I would show you some photos from that day. Don't these little girls look too cute baking away with Sweet Little Birdy products?

How adorable is this pretty pink apron?

I can just imagine using these when baking a cake, how cute would sugar and flour look in these heart shaped measuing cups from Sweet Little Birdy.

Which would match perfectly with these heart shaped measuring spoons and red cookie cutter tin.

Baking or not, whatever you get up to on Valentines Day, I hope you have a beautiful day with the special people in your life.

As for me, the "I love you today because you made me a lovely meal" line from the Engineer became a frequent phrase in our home so we had to draw up some guidelines... ie creativity in the uses of sentences. So he started alternating between lovely meals and "I love you today because you are my beautiful wife".... well now I couldn't complain about that could I?

Yours in blogging
