All you need is retro love...

"All you need is love, all you need is love, all you need is love, love, love is all you need." Ah yes love, care, warmth and support can change a person. Honestly for the past 13 years Valentine's Day has always been difficult because I lost someone February 12th. So I've learned to enjoy this holiday and tell everyone I love them. And it helps that I keep singing, "All you need is love..." OK now your turn...all you need is...

I enjoy these Valentine's cards as the message is so simple, but my favorites are the ones I used to get in school that were handmade. I even enjoyed the hand written note that said I like you. Do you like me? Check the box yes or maybe if you have to think about it, but please stay away from the no box.



Conversation hearts scream Valentine's Day. The newest saying is Tweet Me!


Love can feel like you're on a roller coaster. The trick is you should feel like your on the ride together and not alone.

I so NEED some of these retro Godiva hearts. Why does chocolate make the world go round? Because it makes you stop for a second and enjoy life.

How awesome is this underwear clothes line message?

Stolen moments are the best...



This picture is just amazing to me. It shows how you can mix retro love with boutique design. Imagine if there were yellow flowers to the right of the bicycle as well. And so my lovelies, I wish you a lovely Valentine's weekend. And remember no matter who you spend it, let them be positive, caring and warm. All you need is retro love...

I was in Target awhile ago just reading all the V cards. It made me smile reading a lot of different ways to say "I love you". :-)
