.DIY chair and v-day.

Today is Valentine's Day!

Hubs and I kept our celebration low-key this year. When he got home from work, we put on comfy clothes and cooked breakfast for dinner together. On the menu was fried eggs, bacon, biscuits and orange juice.

After brinner, we got our love note jars off the mantel and took turns reading out loud the reasons we love each other.

I want to make note of the things Hubs said he loves about me {his words, not mine}:

+ my kind spirit
+ my beautiful eyes
+ my faith
+ the way I make him laugh and make him feel special

Nothing feels better than knowing the man I love and admire so much thinks so highly of me!

After reading each others' love notes, we opened our gifts. I got Hubs a dri-fit Razorbacks pullover jacket, and he got me a gift card to Hancock Fabrics.

I also want to share a quick DIY project I accomplished today when I got home from work.

All I did was recover the seat of a vintage chair that sits in our living room. A simple, no-sew update that I think makes a world of difference!

I used hot glue to secure the fabric around the seat and added a throw pillow I picked up recently from T.J. Maxx. I'm very happy with this old chair's new modern look!

Here's hoping you had a blessed Valentine's Day!
