I hope everyone had a wonderful loving Valentine’s Day, whether you celebrate on the day or on the weekend, and whether it’s with friends, a loved one or your family! It’s so fun for Wayne and I to get dressed up and go to a nice dinner. This was our fifth Valentine’s Day together and boy, did he really keep me on my toes.
Early in the day, he texted me saying he couldn’t believe this was our fifth V-day together, and I really had to think about it, because I couldn’t believe it either. I can remember our first V-day, and how anxious I was to be going to Valentine’s Day dinner with this handsome man as his “girlfriend!” I had butterflies!!
This year, I had a work event and was able to head home early to work from home. As soon as I walked in the door, on our dining room table, was a HUGE bouquet of white and pink roses! I was so shocked!!! In the card it explained how this is such a special holiday today because it’s our fifth Valentine’s celebrated together, so he thought it was only fitting to give me five dozen roses – I was blown away and could not be more in love with these gorgeous flowers! So, this called for a blog shoot – Over the next few days, I’ll be posting the outfit I wore, and others considered wearing for my Valentine’s Day date night.

Valentine’s Day could quite possibly be one of my favorite holidays: I love all the pink, flowers, hearts, sweets, glitter, and champagne. I decided to do today’s posting as a guide to having the perfect Valentine’s Day, or Galentine’s Day, if you’re celebrating with your girls!
Below are some of my favorite’s to creating the perfect Valentine’s Day look and gift guide for your special night on the town. If you couldn’t tell, I don’t think I could do Valentine’s Day without a touch of pink, ruffles and frills! Happy Reading, and Shopping!
