Happy Valentine’s Day, my loves!!!! I hope you have all had a great weekend so far, along with something relaxing and/or romantic planned for tonight! We are planning on ordering from The Warbler tonight – and while I would much rather dress up and order a Purple Martin cocktail in person, I’m glad that we can still enjoy one of our favorite date night spots!
Also before we dive in to links, every year I like to share my favorite passage from Savor by Shauna Niequist that you can read in this post. It is all about how you are significant with or without a significant other, and it’s just the best. So, whether you are celebrating with your long term partner, someone new, or you’re on your own today – you are significant and you are loved ❤️

There has been a huge spike in anti-Asian hate crimes in the U.S. since the pandemic began – and it is appalling. Shout out to @aimeesong, @livingminnaly, and @chicagofoodgirl for sharing their experiences this week, too ❤️

I know Waffles & Mochi is being made for children, but I cannot WAIT to watch it!
On Friday, someone asked if I had any suggestions for non-skinny jeans because Gen Z thinks they’re old news 😂 While I still love skinnies, I also love these straight leg and slim boyfriend jeans!
The new footage showing how close Mike Pence and Mitt Romney both came to the rioters really shows how much worse January 6th could have been. This 13 minute video from Tuesday was also really chilling.
