Ryan and I don’t have much of a tradition for this holiday – we usually just try to go out to dinner sometime the week of Valentine’s Day, but that’s about it. My personal Valentine tradition is to consume as much chocolate as I like, guilt-free. Do you have any fun or romantic ways to spend February 14th?

What are you up to this weekend? My mom and I are heading to Denver this weekend to visit my sister and help her with some wedding planning (if she’ll let us), so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for warm enough weather to justify a scoop of Fior di Latte. How good does that look?! I’m also craving a perfect Parisian baguette with butter and jam, but that’s probably just my pregnant self hoping for something I could only really satisfy with a trip across an ocean…

In love with the Johnny Cash stamp (release date not yet announced).

I wish my house house was as nice as this guest house.

Last weekend Ryan and I went in for our ultrasound and found out… we’re having a girl! For some reason I really thought we were having a boy, so it took me a second to make the mental shift (and start pinning little girl clothes), but it’s just so fun to know one more thing about this baby. I can’t wait to meet her!

Darling little Italian baby shoes!

Say yes.

I’ve probably shared these city quilts before, but I just love them so.

We love our rescue puppy, so this photo series of Detroit rescue dogs touched my heart.


Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

Ryan and I (okay, Ryan) started making a dent in clearing out the second bedroom we’ve been using for storage and that we plan on turning into a nursery, so that project will likely continue over the weekend. What about you guys? Any home projects you’re working on these days?

Thank you so much to everyone for your well wishes on our big news! We’re beyond thrilled, and can’t wait to welcome this little one into the world. It’s reassuring to know that we’re not the first people to ever do this (I might be reaching out to you all from time to time for your wisdom!).

And now, for some weekend links…
