You all have seen the Ryan Gosling 'Hey Girl' pictures on Pinterest, right? Very funny stuff. Ryan has a way of making us feel better about all the time we spend crafting, DIY-ing and blogging. He reassures us that we haven't been neglecting our duties, or if we have he still loves us. Yes, it's all very tongue in cheek. If you haven't seen them there are a multitude when you Google Ryan Gosling just click the link to see more images
I just couldn't let this chance pass me by, so I quickly threw together my own version of some 'Hey Girl' posters...
Using Scott as my model, of course!
Scott and I don't usually go over the top to celebrate Valentines Day. We try to have a nice dinner. (If I'm lucky it's out somewhere so I don't have to cook it.) But I've prepared some really special Valentines meals at home over the years.
Maybe he gives me something chocolatey.
Maybe I give him a special treat too ;)
I'm not very fond of the greeting card business and how much money the cards cost ~ so we skip those.
We've gotten creative in the past. One year I woke up and Scott had created a scavenger hunt throughout the house. I spent a good time finding clues until I finally came to the hidden surprise...it was so sweet.
Some years the day has blown by without either of us barely noticing it. And that's okay too. We try to show our love every day in the way that we treat each other. I think that's so much more important than going all out on this commercial holiday.
What do you do for Valentine's Day?
Do you think it's important?
