We had a great weekend full of family, friends, celebrations and house projects!
Hope your day today is extra special – share a few extra compliments with your significant other, sneak a brownie and a valentine into your kid’s lunch, stop and treat yourself to a Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate on your way to work (mmm, now that’s how you bottle happiness.) I hope however you celebrate is extra sweet!

Thank you for letting me share with you a little about the love of a special family yesterday. Fitting that Valentine’s Day and all things *love* is just around the corner, no?
Here’s a clever theme idea for a Valentine’s Day party: Love Bites. Whether it’s you and the girls (and you’re all boycotting boys) or it’s a couples/family party and everyone is assigned a finger food (little love bites in the dessert form), here’s a delicious recipe by Dricoll’s to get you started. Mmmmm.

Pantone has named Honeysuckle as their 2011 Color of the Year – and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve been inspired by the ‘not quite hot pink but warmer than coral’ color for the home, wardrobe and even a Valentine’s Day party.
Honeysuckle (I thought of yellow when I initially heard the color) makes a great impact in small doses. I love the idea of a pink rug in a grey or navy room – or perhaps as a small side table, patterned pillow or a knitted throw for the couch.
For the wardrobe, how about a thin honeysuckle belt over a darker/neutral cardigan? Or even in a pair of daring heels!
