5 Simple Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts


cake-pops-286198_1280I’ve always enjoyed Valentine’s Day, even when I was single. I would bake treats and give them to friends with a handwritten note saying how much I appreciate them. Some boycott and say it’s a made up Hallmark holiday, but why not just jump in and celebrate love with all of our fellow humans?

Here are five easy last minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas in case you’re feeling a step – or several steps – behind this year. (Believe me, I am not judging.

tuesday things



I’m back with a little late night tuesday things. (Two days in a row. I know, I can hardly believe it myself.) Hope y’all are having a great week!

If you have to have a meeting, at least keep it short! Feld
  • My friend Laura at Crossfit made a comment today about how music can completely change your outlook. I totally agree! Lately I could stand to relax a bit. You too? Well here are some tunes that should help us out. Let me know how it works out for you! Clearly my mom’s pups have no problem with relaxation … Washingtonian
