Gifts from the Boy

I've never really "celebrated" Valentine's Day before. Last year Alex and I didn't do anything for the day so when this year rolled around I wasn't expecting much if anything. Alex shows his affection randomly rather than needing a holiday for it. Yet when I got home from work he was there with this lovely beauty book "Making Faces" and this adorable little dinosaur figurine. He thought it would be cute if the dinosaur made some guest appearances in the background of some of my photos. I absolutely love my surprise gifts and appreciate his effort in thinking outside the box for Valentine's Day!

What did you do for Valentine's Day? Do you love the holiday or could do without it?

xoxo Kayla


  1. Aw, I like your dinosaur! I agree, he needs to pop up in your photos! My boyfriend has skinted himself paying our wedding deposit this month, so I didn't expect a thing, but he did cook me a lovely dinner. Like you, we are more about doing the little things that count all year round, rather than a big gesture once a year. xx

  2. What did he make! And I agree it's the little acts of love that makes a healthy relationship!
