I’m going to be completely honest here. And I know I mention this each and every year, but I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. I won’t go into all of the reasons, but, the point is, Patrick and I really don’t celebrate the holiday. However, I do find it a good excuse to wear pinks and reds and fun heart shaped things and visit Disneyland. Especially because I made a glorious parasol very befitting of the holiday.
This is the first parasol I made, which I also intended to be the first I wanted to show, but if you recall my last post, Mardi Gras arrived and I just had to take my beignet one out! I’ve quite a few made now, but with loads more on the way!
A big surprise of Valentine’s Day at Disneyland this year was the appearance of the elusive princes! I was lucky enough to be able to meet Prince Phillip of Sleeping Beauty, and Prince Naveen of Princess and the Frog, both happen to be my favorite princes. Prince Eric of The Little Mermaid was also about, but I missed seeing him.
It turns out princes are very busy. Prince Phillip likes to sleep just as much as Princess Aurora I learned, as well as sail with Prince Eric. Meanwhile Tiana keeps Naveen quite busy with their restaurant, hence why they don’t get out as much!
Of course I had to make sure to see my boys who inspired the parasol. And it was quite a hit.
Whether you celebrated Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day (which I’m celebrating tomorrow with some of my favorite gal pals), or not at all, I hope you had a lovely 14th of February.
