Saint-Valentin Heureuse

The history of Valentine’s Day is impossible to be obtained from any archive.  It is unknown why the 14th day of February is known as Valentine’s Day or if the noble Valentine had any relation to the day.  With the veil of centuries gone by it has made the origin of this day more difficult to trace.  Nonetheless, it’s one of my favourite days of the year! 
Fall ’09 ~ celebrating my 40th birthday in Paris
I vividly remember the first Valentine’s Day I spent with my husband.  We had been dating nearly 3 months.  We dined at our favourite restaurant, it sat beside the airport runway.  He gave me a dozen beautiful red roses, chocolates and a lovely ruby heart pendant.  The heart pendant was one that I admired whilst we passed a jewelry store window a month or two prior.  I had forgotten about it until he gave it to me!  He has always been thoughtful that way.

Wishing you a Valentine’s Day filled with love, happiness and champagne!
Au Revoir!  xoxo, B

    Well, when it comes to hat buying tips for hats I have only one – try it on and see how it makes you feel. Sometimes the most unexpected hats you would never think of wearing become the “it” hat for you. Wishing you wonderful week. 🙂
