February is a wonderful month where we celebrate...love! A holiday to truly appreciate the love that is all around us. For some it's no big deal, but for us Valentine's Day is extra special. We celebrate, our daughter, Hanna's birthday on February 10th. She is turning 18 this year! So in the spirit of Valentine's Day, birthdays and love for family, we will indeed have a celebration.

Mother's Day is coming and it's time to talk gifts. We are willing to bet that your mom is one of the most important ladies in your life.

Nothing says spring like a colorful bouquet of flowers in a pitcher! Simply adding tulips to a pitcher is one of my favorite spring arrangements for our coffee table.
