07/52 + Happy V-Day!

Project 52: a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014

(This week just one of Micha, I was to lazy to take a belly shot!)


Micha: My little love!

I'm actually not a huge fan of V-day. 
It's such a commercialized holiday and that's actually too bad because the idea is so nice.
I love the idea of letting B. know how much I appreciate and love him, 
and while that shouldn't be and isn't reserved for one day of the year, 
I wanted to make him feel special today.

So this year I decided to put my own spin on the 'day of love'.
No expensive presents, but a day filled with kisses, love notes 
and a romantic dinner for two at home after Micha's gone to bed.

On the menu:
Chicken and Ham Parmesan from my trusty cookbook: What to cook and how to cook it: Fresh and easy.
and for dessert:
Chocolate pots. This recipe. (which looks delicious, no?)

We also sent some Valentine's cards to the Grandparents and some of Micha's little friends.

I saw this post, and thought it was such a cute and simple idea, and the results turned out really nice!

the left ones say: 'I think you're sweet' and the right ones say: 'I love you' 
I hung up a red sheet as a fun background and only drew the heart on the chalkboard, I photo-shopped in the rest of the words.
It was a little hard to make Micha hold up the chalkboard just right and look into the camera at the same time. So while the photo's aren't perfect, the results are still pretty cute, I think!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'll be back next week with some fun and exciting (for us anyways) news!
 (hint: it's travel related! eek!)

Love, Maria
