Hi Loves! I hope you’re off to a good week! Last year, Valentine’s Day was so special for Marc and I because we had just gotten our Ralphie Bear! Which is obviously the perfect excuse to have a family photo session (I mean, duh!) We had taken our FIRST photos together as a family, which you can check out here, and because it was a little more low key, I surprised Marc with a Valentine’s Day Bar Cart that included all his favorite things. Because New York Fashion Week falls on Valentine’s Day, we didn’t plan anything this year – that was… until Marc surprised ME!
Over the weekend, Marc and I had our now annual Valentine’s Day shoot scheduled (traditionnnnnnn – TRADITION!). I mean, good thing we picked the COLDEST and windiest day of the year – haha! We Froze our bums off! However, we did get a bunch of cute candid shots (shared below! 🙂 ). Anyways, I woke up early Saturday to get ready and while I was making coffee, Ralph came running into the kitchen with a little blue box. Two months ago, I would’ve said that this was my dream proposal – HA! In reality, it wasn’t so cute and ended up being 10 minutes of zombie keep away, because I am completely useless before coffee in the morning, haha. When I finally gave up chasing Ralph around our apartment, I sat down and Ralph ran over and dropped the blue Charles and Colvard box in my lap. Inside was the sweetest surprise ever!
Marc picked out the cutest Charles and Colvard moissanite stud earrings, and said it “symbolizes our little family – a stone for each of us”. I was blown away! And then I had to make a joke and told him I was going to call them my Beyonce “Three Hearts” earrings 😛 (if you don’t get the reference – google it! Because that’s what adulting is. Google. 😉 ) It was so sweet how he wanted me to have them early, so I could wear them for our Valentine’s Day photoshoot that day. <3
Later when I looked them up, I discovered that Charles and Colvard is the original creator of moissanite! Moissanite is a gemstone that has more fire and brilliance than diamond that is both environmentally responsible, as well as more affordable. Which you can absolutely tell – they are so radiant!! I also love the design and shape of them; they can be paired with everything and are so simple and elegant, I haven’t been able to take them off! While I was video chatting with my mom, she noticed them right away and told me she loved them. (Mom close your eyes!) Since Charles and Colvard are having a 20% off site-wide sale through the 12th, I think I’m going to snag a pair for her too and tuck them away for Mother’s Day 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!! So much love from my little family to yours!
