my valentines weekend

was perfect.
i have never been a valentines day or SAD (single awareness day) hater.
even though i have been single practically every valentines,
i have not once been depressed or sad.
growing up, my family made valentines day a big deal.
my mom would usually ring the doorbell and leave presents on the doorstep for us all.
(vicky mints always included)
all of my mom's siblings and their families would always make a creative valentine for each family. and when i say creative, i mean outrageously creative.
i will have to dig up some photos just so you can see for yourself.
we always had a blast trying to sneak up to each doorstep and run away without being caught, and loved finding all sorts of valentines on our own doorstep.
my dad, only having two daughters, would give me and my sis a cute flower arrangement from artichoke & co. still my favorite flower shop to this day.
so you see, valentines has always been the best holiday.
i always feel so much love from my family, who cares about getting a valentine from a guy, or having a boyfriend? haha not me, but what else is new.
so here are some photos of my fun weekend...

friday i did a love/valentines photo shoot for fun & for my mom's booth at the bridal show.
