This year Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday so why not start it off before work with a coffee station? How sweet and super simple, I mean you’re making coffee anyways right? So just put it in cute mugs, even like these His and Her’s. I don’t know about you but I have a cabinet full of cute mugs, Homegoods baby! They have the best selection.. I do also collect them from all around.

If you read my last roundup post 5 MUST-HAVES FOR VALENTINE’S DAY then you saw my FREE printable I gave you.. adding in some LOVE to the gallery is always fun. I basically just mixed it up by moving everyone around, I switched up the prints from my shop too, like ‘I Love the Shiiit Outta You’ It’s a fun saying I always tell my husband, So I thought it was perfect to put it up front and center.

Gold lips and eye lashes… I mean super love muffin..right? And of course my neon heart light that I have normally plugged it 24-7.. it’s just super hard to take a picture of it On.. any suggestions let me know!

♥Our Little LOVE Story ♥

Wow,  it seems crazy that this was almost 8 years ago, I want to get personal for a hot second and share a special Love story of mine with you.. since were all mushie around this holiday might as well…

It was on Valentine’s Day 2009, my then boyfriend Dennis Lee Beltran III and I hit the road to what I thought was the typical day at the beach in Monterey, shopping the town, eating fried calamari and drinking all the local beer but Dennis had something else in mind and he wasn’t going to tell me. At the time we lived in Gilroy so about a hour after driving we are in Carmel then southbound into Big Sur we went..

bur sur, california, bixby

That was the day I learned I hated secrets, oooh I was PISSED! I’m a mapper, I like to know and give direction. I plan, I map, I handle and he drives.. and fast. that’s also why I was pissed.. super car sick on this winding ass road. He saw my grumpyness and instead of turning around (like he later said he wanted to do) he slowed his roll, turned on my kinda music, held my hand and we kept driving for a good hour.

He turns off to this gravel road that leads straight down. We park, he gets out, takes my hand and we almost immediately start walking up a hill, we turn and still go up further I’m like Dude WTF, are we like really working out? I’m huffin and puffin, I swear he was behind me pushing my big ol ass up the hill. Finally we make it to the top.. You guys, the view was to die for ocean view for days.

BIG SUR, CALIFORNIA, PACIFIC OCEAN

We just stood there for what it seems like forever and enjoyed the view, it turns out it was the first place we stayed as a couple away a few years earlier.

I was totally lost trying find my words for my grumpiness well I was lost in general thinking how sweet he was bringing me here, we were all alone, this bench was there sooooooo we sat starring at the view and probably made out.

I always look for whales but never see anything.. I turned to see what he was up to and he was down on one knee. Talk about speechless OMG!! Of course I said YES..

On the way home we pretty much planned our wedding, 3 weeks later we got married in a little chapel his parent got married in and it was perfect!!!  It was a rainy Tuesday evening, I had on a long vintage fur I borrowed from a boutique I worked at from time to time and a simple white gown. My then best friend now sister in law Tiffany did my hair and make up.. she was taking pictures before we left, I remember hearing Dennis call her asking if I was still coming. He was a little nervous.. It was a night I’ll never forget! I only have 2 pictures  of that and in both his eyes are red, cute! It reminds me of the movie Talladega Nights. LOL!

We call this our ‘Room with a VIew’ we come back here all the time especially now that we live in Monterey. Sometimes even on Christmas morning. Each time we come he carves the date.. this pic needs to get updated

We still always joke how bitchy I was.. live and learn. I’m now married to my driver, I’m still the mapper and planner. He lets me adventure and be 100% ME. He let’s me create, design and now blog…. in bed ( like now at 10 at night.) He supports me and I support him like best friends do. I love living life with him. I’m truly grateful!!

initials, love story

For our 10 year my dream is to recreate our hippie wedding with more family and friends. I also want to have someone captured some awesome pictures to frame. Basically we want a party to celebrate us .. I have 2 years guys. I’ve dreamed of it for a long ass time now. And yes I have a Pinterest board on that.

Thank you for stopping by.. leave me some LOVE in the comments

xoxo
