I would say I am a bit of a romantic. Yes, I smile for days at the sight of a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Im a sucker for love poems, love songs and love stories. I could write love letters for hours and still not get sick of it. So you can probably put two and two together and come to the conclusion that I love Valentines Day. Do you remember getting so excited to go to the store and pick out your favorite package of valentines day cards and come home and fill them out for all your friends? How amazing was it to see your valentines day mail box in your classroom full to the brim with lovely notes from your classmates with pictures of sailor moon, garfield, my little pony, the little mermaid and alf on the front of them. I remember being so full of hope when I would receive valentines from my (extensive list of) crushes. "To Katy - Happy Valentines Day! Love Johnny" *sigh* Ive come a long way since I was 8 years old but Valentines Day is still dear to my heart. When I was younger every Valentines Day my Dad would give me a heart shaped box of cinnamon hearts (they are my favorite!) right before I left for school. It was his special way of saying "I love you, Happy Valentines Day!" and even though this day gets commercialized with boxes of chocolate, obnoxiously huge teddy bears, and the famous red&pink combo, its still a day to be thankful for those you love in your life and a day to tell them so. So without further ado...Happy Valentines Day Postcards From readers! x

  7. I love this outfit. Very romantic and you didnt even need red or pink : ). The flowers are gorgeous and I by-the- way I have always been a lover of V-day myself. Even though it have been more undercover in the past ( didn't really go with my previous image) I really do love it! Happy V-day. Check-out my PINK SHOE post!

  11. I am so in awe of your outfit. I adore this Kate. Ahhh love the floral rose wreath and that blouse is so romantic. I loved reading your post. My V-day post is going to be a little dark, but hey, I guess I'm just feeling this way and it's gloomy and raining today. Well I'm a huge romantic too, so I adored your love letter to your readers. Bless you. I've never really celebrated V-day, even the three years I was with someone, we didn't do anything. So I guess I've never felt that kind of romance and spontaneity. Aww well, I'm still young, we'll see.

    Anyways, I hope you've been well and enjoying home and all! Happy Valentine's Day!!!

  12. Happy Valentine's Day! I have to agree about the commercialization which almost ruins Valentine's Day for me but I try to turn it into a day where I tell everyone I love that I love them instead of just leaving it for one person.

  13. Hey Kate! Thanks for leaving a comment. I wish I could wear those shoes but unfortunately I wear a size 11 and 1/2 and so all of them are too small for me. I put them up for everyone to enjoy(including me because I love to look at them) and anyone who might want to buy them. Your plans for today sound perfect. Enjoy! Come visit me again soon. Muuahhh!

  33. wow. you got Sailor Moon valentines? I got mocked for liking them and no one else did at all. . ..granted that was in 1995 and it didn't really get known around here until about 1999 since when I started to watch it, it was on at 5:30AM. :: shrugs ::
    . . .okay so I don't think I ever got a valentine in classes though since I was in 1st grade. I had no friends.

    Love this entry! you're adorable.
