productivity & the weekend.

so the past few days have been super productive.
so productive that i had to share!
today for example, I managed to go to yoga, go on a run, watch live! with kelly :) , edit music, teach class, get project love orders ready, and now winding down while watching some tori&dean! i've cleaned & spent time with chris. it's been nice to be busy with things but also be able to spend time doing the thing i enjoy doing! hooray!

also... over the weekend...
the sanfords were in town! SO great! it was a quick trip, however i was able to spend some one on one time with margaret, and also have a girls day with some of my faves! pedicures? my feet are thanking me :)

a night at amelie's.
iphone captured the night, so forgive the photo quality & fall in LOVE with this precious, french, 24/7/365 bakery! i am smitten.
we spent the evening with our favorite romeos at this cute little spot, here in our city of charlotte. the line was wrapped throughout the store, but totally worth the wait. it's such a cozy atmosphere. i love everything french so obviously I am OBSESSED with the decor. so much of it is JUST like i picture my dream bakery to be. if you every visit charlotte... definitely stop in!

happy valentines day.

our valentines day was DELIGHTFUL!
seriously, my favorite valentines day ever.
first of all... i'm married to the best valentine in the world, husband :)
he made our night so so special. he tricked me into thinking that he didn't do anything at all. he just kept apologizing and saying that he couldn't believe he had put it off and not thought of anything to do... ha! well... i came home & what did i find? the coziest of blanket forts EVER... something i had been wanting to do for a loooong time :) complete with twilight, pizza, champagne, flowers, a teddy bear, a card & of course cupcakes... SHAPED into a HEART ladies & gentlemen!! YES, he did it all himself :) he is the best man ever. we love eachother everyday & it is our priority to make eachother feel loved, special, and appreciated... doesn't make Valentines any less fun!

i hope YOUR valentines day was wonderful as well!
happy valentines day! love, harlow
