we didn't really do anything for valentine's day. we figured pretty much the most romantic thing you can do together is conceive a child, and we've already done that. hallelujah!!! all of life is a celebration in that case.
with a baby in your belly, it all feels double sweet.
speaking of doubles, here are my two valentine's day outfits.
this first one for work centered around some new favorites. again, the stretch pant queen! teeny all the way over in new zealand, gifted me a pair of 80s leggings, my choice, from etsy! what a sweetie. these heart-print beauties arrived just in time for the big v-day.
i wore them with a gorgeous pink beaded gypsy scarf from missa, and a pretty white tunic that came in my first-ever package, way-back-when, from milla.
look at these babies. that's what i'm talking about! in my next few posts i'll show the cute ones i got from anne and missa too.
we went out to dinner and i wanted to get a teensy bit dressed up, even though the "fancy" restaurant where we were going to eat ended up being closed on tuesdays, (who's closed on valentine's day?!) so we went to our usual mexican food joint.
anyway, i put on this dress which is much more clingy than my usual, and asked darin, truly...what do you think? too tight? too much? he was like, nah, not if you want to show off that cute pregnant belly!
it was really popping out that eve. sometimes it's bigger than others, so weird. i LOVE to see the changes.
thank you sweet girls!
later we chilled at home, watched a movie called Meek's Cutoff directed by Kelly Reichardt which i highly recommend and had popcorn with nutrional yeast, our favorite. watching a great film together is one of the best romantic activities, really, cause you get to engage your whole heart and brain.
doesn't hurt when the imagery is this beautiful either.
hope you all had a sweetness-filled day.
