On Monday, I sent my valentine a thank you message:
We had a lovely Valentine's weekend. Nothing extravagant. In fact, Max was really sick and recovering from a nasty cold. My Valentine's surprise didn't go as planned, but I did have the opportunity to drop off a few of his favorite things.
The Little Things: Kombucha // Coconut Water // Photos from Hipstamatic // The Otis Succulent from Bloom That // Almond Crossaints from Thorough Bread and Pastry // 'Happy Fucking Valentine's Day' Card from Papersource
The rest of the weekend was so relaxing. We spent our weekend in Mill Valley playing house and dog sitting Miss Betty White.
I knew that I wanted to gift Max with the Little Things that make him smile, but I soon realized that our weekend was naturally filled with beautiful "Little Things" that make us both so happy -- talks over wine, gluten free pizza, cuddling, waking up to the sun, exploring on a hike, cooking brunch, singing in the car, sharing dinner with parents, reading and blissful sleep.
As I reflected on the weekend, I was so incredibly grateful. Hence, my Monday morning note. Life is short and those you love deserve to know what they mean to you. Don't be afraid to express yourself in a way that is authentic and fills your soul.
