This is so sweet. Photographer Lauren Fleishman snapped portraits and captured the love stories of NYC-area couples who have been together for over 50 years for her project, Love Ever After.
She plans to compile all of the stories into an art book and you can contribute to her project by backing her on Kickstarter, too. Love, Nik

Lovestagram

Are you an Instagram addict like me? Well, if so, there’s an adorable new service called Lovestagram created by a friend of mine that allows you to send a personalized valentine created with Instagram photos.

Kaitlyn, the creator, actually coded out the site/service as a Valentine’s gift to her boyfriend, who happens to be the Instagram co-founder. How sweet is that? I wish I could say I had the same determination to code something for Nate, so I have to give her major props for her hard work! Very impressive. Love, Nik

Wisconsin is the most romantic state

Weird data factoid of the day: According to Redbox LaCrosse, Wisconsin is the #1 ‘Most Romantic City.’ (Now, they based this on the number of romantic comedies rented in 2011 so I’m not exactly sure that is the most accurate title... perhaps it means the opposite?

Regardless, thought I’d share that little tidbit for you fellow Wisconsinites. Love, Nik

Well, if this is not the cutest thing I’ve ever seen… ~LP

I’ve been on the hunt for a cute card to give my man for Valentine’s Day and I thought I’d share some of my faves. (I actually ended up getting #1 but there are so many cute ones out there that I think he’ll just be getting random love notes from me throughout the year…) Love, Nik
Cards: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

I’m toying with the idea of decorating for Valentine’s Day this year… Justin and I rarely celebrate in any big way (so romantic and sentimental are we!) but it would be a simple way of making the day a bit more special. ~LP

Turntable Kitchen Pairings Boxes

Turntable Kitchen is a great blog that pairs stellar tunes with recipes. Their latest and greatest idea? A Pairings Box: a limited edition 7” vinyl single with two tracks from the bloggers’ favorite bands; a curated mixed tape (available to download); 3 original, seasonal, themed recipes; a couple of ingredients to help you on your way and other occasional treats (yummies, recipes from the artists, special tracks, etc). 

This would be such a great gift for the foodie/music lover in your life (ahem, hi!). This foodie/music lover thinks it would also make wonderful plans for Valentines Day. ~LP
