Happy Valentine's Day!


We’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day week in so many ways here this week, dear readers! We’ve shared cards and songs and names and, of course, with a giveaway. So, without further ado, I’m pleased to announce that the winner of some of my favorite things is:

Rachel W

Jon and I are celebrating in our own hybrid way, you know. You probably read Case Study, so you’ve found out how we would do Valentine’s Day if we were together, but since we’re not we’re getting a bit more creative. (I know you’re curious, so I’ll tell you: we’ll be making stuffed chicken breasts and a zucchini rice gratin, and we’ll watch Woody Allen’s Match Point.) But also Jon sent me the sweetest card and I had flowers delivered to his office – I’m expecting his colleagues to tease him mercilessly for at least a week – and I’ve been putting together a care package to post to him this weekend. Here’s what he’s going to get that will tell him how much I love him…

Three flavors of Goldfish
Datevitation coupon book
hand-painted HONEYMOONFUND treasure chest / piggy bank
lovey-dovey card


How about you, dear readers? How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? Come back tomorrow to see what I wore and to hear about how I subjected my office to festivities!  (Following me on Twitter and Instagram will give you a sneak peek...)  Much love to you all!

  4. As sucky as it is to spend V-day apart, sending and getting packages in the mail make up for it in a little way. Happy Valentine's Day, friend!
