Valentine’s Day Decorations

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve begun decorating the house with some Valentine’s Day decorations. That meant I finally had to get rid of the Christmas decorations… Bye, bye Christmas tree… Hello, teddy bears, candles and roses.

What I Accomplished in 2014
