Kelly and I have lived in a combined 16 apartments since we left college. Nearly every one of them was an absolute dump. Until very recently, we were renting a third-floor walkup that had outside stairs… in Chicago. We walk by that place all the time, as it’s a few blocks from our current home, and whenever we pass it, we can’t help but smile. Yes, the “quaint” exposed brick walls would literally crumble in front of our eyes–one time into soup I was making–but that place is where our Chicago adventure first started. And therefore, it’ll always be special.
But good lord. I’m really glad we don’t live there anymore.
Valentine’s Day is a week away, people! And while it’s almost certainly too late to get a decent table, you can still rescue the holiday and, with any hope, your relationship. (Kidding, kidding. 😉) Below you’ll find 20 handpicked, Mitch-approved gifts that he’ll actually love.
Don’t screw this up.
And if you’d rather shop for yourself, take a look at Kelly’s brand spankin’ new Amazon Shop! Here you’ll find a constantly updated list of Amazon fashion, home, baby and fun finds. You can find the link in the main menu of this site. I mean, you deserve a few Valentine’s Day treats, too, right?
Somehow, Valentine’s Day is next week. And I don’t know about you guys, but on countless occasions, I’ve found myself standing in front of my closet–a half hour before I need to be out the door–wondering how I’m going to put together a “festive” look that isn’t cheesy. So today, I thought I’d share some easy-to-replicate outfits for Valentine’s Day–appropriate for whatever it is you’re doing. :)
Brace yourself! That little gift-giving break you’ve enjoyed over the last few weeks is quickly coming to a close. There’s a big red heart appearing on the horizon, and if you aren’t prepared, you could end up like my boy Saint Valentine who, as we all know, wrote the first Valentine card to the daughter of his jailer before being executed.
