Love Is In The Air!

Since the day we took all of our Christmas decorations down, & I took one look around at what seemed like a "bare" house, I started counting down the days until I could decorate for the next holiday.

I love a festive home!  I love punches of color here & there {I have a hot pink laundry room, for goodness sake-- if that's not a love for color then I don't know what is}.  I will look for any reason to spruce up the house & make it a little homier & fun!  I come by it pretty honestly, as this is what my mom always did when I was growing up.  I remember coming home after school to find the house all decked out for every single season & holiday!  At Halloween time, our spiral staircase showcased a gigantic spooky spider web, & little orange lights twinkled along the bannisters!  One Valentine's Day I came home to find that my bedroom had been remade into a heart haven!  I had a new comforter, new sheets, new curtains, all splashed in tiny different colored hearts!  I remember absolutely LOVING that my mom took the time to make the holidays special & I have carried it with me & want to do the same for my family!  

So....with Valentine's Day just around the corner, Jett & I got busy gettin' festive!  We grabbed a few supplies from Hobby Lobby {mostly just inexpensive paper & ribbon} & put it all together to add a little pizazz to our home!  

The cutest thing is that this morning when Jett woke up & saw the garland banner hanging {he had gone to bed before I had time to hang it last night}, he pointed at it & jibber jabbered with a sweet little excited expression all over his face!  It warmed my heart to know that he noticed it hanging there, & that he too, loves the little "touches" I place around our home!

{Pink tree is from Hobby Lobby.  I got it after Christmas when all of their Christmas stuff was 60% off}

Now...where did I place my planner?  I'm off to see how many days I've got until I can start on the next holiday!
