Love this

That bright fuchsia bougainvillea + the sun setting + our monthly family photo shoot with our trusty old camera self timer XO. Good times. 

I hope you had a lovely Valentine's day. I know some people cringe at the very thought of this holiday but even before I was married or had a boyfriend I celebrated Valentine's day. It was more like Galentine's day. My sisters and I would either go out to eat at a nice restaurant together or I would stop by a drive thru and splurge on a combo meal ;) then buy a few sweets + flowers and go home to enjoy my feast. With our without a Valentine, I was happy being me. I was always happy for everyone who had someone special, because I never felt I had to be with someone. I knew I was loved and that was pretty darn good enough for me. I've always liked holidays that remind you to love & that you are loved. It's such a good reminder :)

I was catching up on some Parks & Rec on Hulu the other day and they had a very funny episode all about "Treat Yo Self" and I LOVED it. Super Silly but it got me thinking about the good old days as a feisty single lady ;) lol!  Ah... those were the days. 

Anyway, happy "you are loved" day lovelies. Now go out and treat yo self! XO

I wanted to also share a few family photos. This is the Inspire Lovely family :)
Mr. Handsome, Little R & the Queen bee: Me. Just kidding, I'm more like the side kick to these two. We voted this one our best photo. Thank God for self timers... and running back and forth to press the button then look composed... sure does keep me on my toes lol!

This one is our most giggly one. ( it's SO hard to take photos of a 3 year old now a days we tickle him to make him smile lol!

And this is us being normal. We can't always be so stinking proper. Rafael will ask us to "Eat him" and we do. We eat yummy little kids for dinner and I really do bite him. heh, just kidding.  about one of those things.  ;) Living life. Documenting. Creating. That's what I've been up to. 

I can't wait to scrapbook these photos especially with this new paper kit I designed and is now in the shop

Exclusive paper designs + handmade details + sewn vellum confetti & sequin pocket + hand lettered art cards + gold foil details XOXO 

Plus these exclusive one of a kind handmade ( by me :) embellishments. Sequins + sewn details + gold foil XO + Cute Prize Ribbon style embellishments XOXO You'll love it! 

I only made 10 kits making this kit very exclusive & unique. I love making the kits knowing that only a few people have the same exact items as I do. I think it's pretty special. :)

I'm giving away this pretty set of exclusive handmade embellishments and will be collectively compiling the entries here on the blog + instagram and pick a lucky winner on Monday.
