While it may be the day that most people associate with romance and all things love-ly, I get to celebrate the birth of a special little man on February 14th each year. True to his birthdate my not-so-little little brother is a definite Casanova!
It's not to say that SW and I ignore the day entirely, just that we are less sap & more silly. We're best friends to the core & usually pass the day by exchanging some ridiculously goofy cards and watching a movie at home. While we won't partake in any of the "festivities" necessarily, I do absolutely love seeing what others bake, make, and pull together for the day - be it for the perfect girls only girl power celebration or a special night with that special someone. In the spirit of love I've pulled together a few of my favourite Valentine's Day projects, along with a list of some of the love related goodies that I'm lusting after.
Head over to Decor8 and check out there list of 28 Creative DIY Ideas for Valentine's Day - including these adorable Love Letter Cookies.

So, what's on the top of my Valentine's wish list? The cute little polar bear takes the cake. I know, I know - stuffed animals are cheesy and cliche, and totally remind me of being a smitten pre-teen. Anyone else? This little guy is completely and utterly different, and definitely worthy of being the ultimate Valentine's Day gift in my mind. The World Wildlife Fund is running an adorable Valentine's Day promotion complete with Lindt chocolate and these adorable little animals. You can support the WWF by symbolically adopting a number of threatened and endangered species from the Great White North to the plains of Africa. What better way to celebrate a day that's all about love than sending some seriously good vibes out into the universe - hearts, kisses and all!
