Time to Say I Love You!

Where has the time gone? 
Only one more week till Valentine’s Day.

Of course,  everyday should be the right time to
show those we love what they mean to us
The problem is finding the time. 
DSC00011 REDO Sometimes it is the little things that mean so much

DSC00009 Spell it out in delicious chocolate

DSC00010 and box it up!

DSC00012 REDOoh amour!

DSC00013 REDOA special tea for lovers from Palais de Thé

DSC00017 REDO 
I’m not positive but I think I found  Cupid and a little friend
sleeping quietly inside an antique store

Here is the little guy in action


Hurry.   Time is ticking away.
All these sweet things do mean alot, 
but what really matters most
is to take time everyday
in words or deeds
don’t let another minute slip by without saying I love you!

Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!
Mimi Bleu

So perfectly put. So easy to not take the time to express ones love. I try so hard to show it every day to those I care about. I don't want to be gone someday & have my family wonder if they were truly loved and adored.

Beautiful post ♥

Where else to celebrate Valentine's than France? Paris is the most amazing place and I am happy (rather jealous) for anyone that is able to spend time there :)

What wonderful things, Paris has to offer on Valentines Day. I guess that it is THE place to be on the 14th. although, I think that Paris is the place to be anytime of the year. Don't eat too much of that chocolate !! XXXX

Unknown said...

Oooooh!! The chocolates and the tea are perfect for me!! Think I should show this post to Mr Dragonfly!!! ;-)
Have a lovely week!!

Hi Mimi,

Your so right! Valentines day is becoming more and more popular in Holland as well. We did not celebrate it at first, but now.....I have to see if I can buy something small and sweet for my husband and daughters ;-)!

Happy sunday!

Lieve groet,

It is important to search time to say it to the dear important beings that are in our life... That you spend a great day in this wonderful city

Eve said...

Dear Mimi,
true words my dear friend ! Even without Valentine´s day we should always remember that it are the little things that fill our life with love and happiness.
I therefor started today a little giveaway :-) And I added an automatic translator on my page but I´m not quite sure that "he" does a good job ;-) But it helps understanding. (I hope)

Thank you for this wonderful post and have a sunny Sunday !

Floralovely said...

It's true! A kiss, cuddle or even just a little text message during the day to say I love you... It's so important!

As a floral designer I'm so crazy busy over Valentine's Day spreading other peoples love, I have to spend the rest of the year professing my own. This morning I'm loving your message and photos. Maybe they'll be some flowers for us to see too? Always looking for inspiration, I am.

Rachael said...

I love the idea of valentine tea - my fella would just love that seeing he's so addicted to the stuff!


What a great blog! Looking forward to following your posts!
Have a great day,

Lovely romantic post!!! Thanks for sharing!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh ma belle Mimi! Your love story inspired me as well...I told my husband about it this morning and first of all, he loved your idea of collecting these stories (he is a very sentimental and pensive ma) and he was impressed with YOUR love story! We both love Paris and when we go again, maybe we can meet at Ladurée? On verra....

Post Scriptum:
I see you visited us at NOWHERE! I did the first drawing of the little creatures in the airplane and then the Fabulous Dutchess took off and did another rendering with her beloved Miss Moussie in the role of "Jane Bond"...too cute and too fun for words! Anita

Champagne Macarons said...

A beautiful post, dear Mimi! Each day I try to show ♥ to my family and friends, and kindness to everyone I encounter.

The photos you've chosen are lovely ~ the tea looks wonderful!!

Valentine's Day is one of my favourite days of the year!! I will spend the week baking cupcakes and macarons, among other delectable treats, to give to the special people in our lives!!

Have a beautiful week!!
