Will You Accept This Rose?

Dress: Topshop; Shoes: BCBGeneration; Tights: Target; Flower: Hobby Lobby
Happy Valentine's Day!!  For me, the perfect Valentine's gift is a well thought out music mix.  I've always been that girl who creates one for the boy in my life, attaching hand written lyrics and pictures to every song.  Music is one of my favorite ways of self expression.  And I'm totally a sucker for a love song.  It's just the most beautiful act, penned to the perfect words, set to the perfect melody.  So in honor of Valentine's Day, I will not cattle you and pass out roses.  Instead, I created a little Valentine's mix for you, with a few of my favorite love songs at the moment.   Wishing you a happy day filled with lots of love.  If not love, chocolate!!  And a good song.  ;)

Big Jet Plane - Angus and Julia Stone
Love Will Take You - Angus and Julia Stone
Gone, Gone, Gone - Phillip Phillips
Love They Say - Tegan and Sara
Hang With Me - Robyn
Joy - Ellie Goulding
And a song for the love lorn...
Give Me Love - Ed Shearan

XO

:) I love the list. I am still the girl who makes mixed cds for friends even though they act like they don't know what to do with a CD any more.

I love Ed's song. I am still so bummed I missed his show last night in Vegas. Type in "Ed Sheeran - iTunes Festival 2012 [Full Set]" to Youtube and there's an entire concert of his online from last year!
