Blast from the Past Down the Balloon Path (say that 10 times fast!)

We’re celebrating Valentine’s Day all week in the Passante house. Everyday I have a little homemade surprise for Zan. I like celebrating Valentine’s Day, but not in the way of buying lavish gifts… I mean seriously did we not all just spend a giant sum of money during Christmas, what more could we need?! So in lieu of gifts, Zan will come home to a small surprise everyday this week… just to show him my love. Today when he walked in the door from work he was greeted by a pathway of balloons with small black and white photos of our past. I called it the “blast from the past down the balloon path!” We’ve been together for 10 years (I was 18 when we met!), so there are definitely some good ones in there! He adored his surprise and now we have festive balloons in our house for the rest of the week. Romeo is in love with them and I like waking up to colorful balloons… it’s kind of like a party every morning!

    This is such a sweet idea. Such a creative alternative to traditional “gift giving”….so much more meaningful!
