We had a great “date night” at home last night — grilled pizzas and chocolate soufflés on the back patio (the weather was insanely gorgeous) followed by Jake Gyllenhaal’s flick Nightcrawler (not romantic, but still awesome.) Phoebe’s also fully embraced the holiday, and we’ve somehow ended up with Frozen-themed Valentine stickers stuck onto just about every surface of our house. We have a really fun week ahead on the blog — tomorrow we’re debunking face masks and stopping by the home of one of my favorite culinary couples — and until then, enjoy a few can’t-miss reads from the past week!
