{Happy Valentine's Day}: A Palette of Reds + Pinks

Happy Valentine's Day, lovelies! For me, Valentine's Day has always been a day set aside to remind the people in my life just how much I love them. A sweet handmade card, a batch of yummy treats, maybe a nice dinner out? I don't know about you but I've always been a sucker for Valentine's Day. And although gifts and special dinners are nice, ultimately it's always just nice to be reminded that you're loved. Am I right? Today I am also reminded that yesterday actually marked the Perfect Palette's 3rd birthday! Wow!! It's kind of hard to believe how much this little blog has grown. Furthermore, it's just absolutely nuts to think about how my life has changed behind the scenes since starting this blog.

I was newly engaged when I had the idea to start my blog. In the last three years, I got married to the love of my life, we purchased our first home, we had our first son who is now 18 months and we're now expecting twins this July. Not to mention the fact that I was able to turn my blog {and my passion} into my fulltime gig.

I'll always be forever grateful to my sweet and loyal readers who enabled me to do just that. My life has truly changed for the better since starting The Perfect Palette. And so because of that, I'd like to take today to remind you how much you are loved! There's nothing more sweet than being able to wake up each day and do something you absolutely adore. And thankfully, I have sweet readers like you to share my ideas with. I hope your day is filled with reminders that you're loved...because you are!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Perfect Palette & Happy Valentine's Day, Chrissy!


This palette reminds me of my wedding. I had all those colors, plus the all the shades of purple. I got the idea from Matt Lauer's wedding from Martha Stewart circa too many years ago.
