I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day, with or without a boyfriend. I love the pervasive red and pink in shops. I love the additional flowers that seem to pop up more places. I love any excuse to have fresh flowers around.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, I went out this week and took my bicycle with me for a little photoshoot next to a mural I discovered recently. I thought it was extra cute with the Valentine balloons. 💙🚲❣️🎈❣️
I’ve loved Valentine’s Day since I was a little girl. I think what I love is that it comes after (an often dreary) winter and feels like a ray of hope looking toward Spring with all the bright colors and flowers. 💐🌹
I’ve compiled a few colorful shots to share today to commemorate this love-filled day. Enjoy❣️

It’s not every day you have the streets lining Amsterdam’s famous canals all to yourself. This autumn morning, I rose early with the hopes of getting a few canal reflection shots. To my surprise, it was a very foggy morning, so the reflections weren’t so easy to get, but the fog that enveloped the bridges plus the quietness of the morning made for quite an incredible atmosphere. I didn’t mind a bit when this man cycled into my shot; I love the movement his presence brings against a backdrop of pure stillness.
