Valentines Instagram

So we are not big on over commercialised holidays and like to get back to the real meanings behind the days we celebrate and I think completely turning your back on Valentines day can be quite cynical as in my family we have always used the day to show our loved one's what they mean to us, including family, my mother has always made me something since I was small, like a felt heart or card, as I was her daughter and she's my mother and our bond is something special. I don't think there is anything wrong with a day that celebrates love in the world, the thing is to not get too wrapped up in the whole supermarket style of it being shoved down our throats every time we enter one, trying to get us to buy huge boxes of chocolates and massive balloons,  I mean if that's your thing by all means get them, but we just try to treat ourselves with things we love, such as good food, wine, a nice magazine and possibly some fresh flowers (I love the smell of fresh flowers).
After some really yummy croissants for breakfast and some rose bubbly we headed out to Cardiff bay for a meal at Las Iguanas. The food was really good, in fact we where surprised how good it was, and very baby friendly and the staff where very welcoming and efficient - we will be back! Here is our instgram fun from our loving day :)

John knows what little treats I like...Vogue and some morning bubbly
