How My Valentine’s Day Has Changed

I haven’t spent a single Valentine’s Day with Allen since we first started dating.

Since New York Fashion Week and Valentine’s Day always happen during the same time, it’s been around 8 or 9 years since I got to spend Valentine’s Day with my hubby so we always make it a point to do something special with and for each other before I take off. Whether we can squeeze in a romantic date night, or even if we just have a moment to ourselves to reminisce about the past, no matter what we end up doing – I really treasure the quiet moments we have together- especially now that we’re parents!

When we do have time being alone together, it feels like we’re dating again!

When we were first dating, Allen surprised me with a piece of jewelry for Valentine’s Day… I want to say it was maybe about… 10 years ago? It was a dangling heart ring, so now anytime I see heart jewelry, it always brings back this very vivid and fond memory of us when we were so young and in love. That’s why I’m super excited to partner up with Chopard once again to share our love story and their Happy Hearts Collection!

The Happy Hearts Collection is absolutely STUNNING. I really adore the collection and I love the way it brings sophistication to something a little more playful! How great are these diamond studded earrings and necklace? They’re the perfect everyday pieces.

Jewelry is such a great reminder of the love that Allen and I have because they hold on to so many memories – like the cornerstones of the life we’ve built together for over a decade.

In the earlier years of us dating, I was broke, struggling as a college student and he was just starting his career. We spent our days imagining what life would be like once we had a home, a dog, and eventually kids! It’s crazy to realize that we have all of those things now… it feels surreal! Every day when I wake up, it’s a constant reminder that it’s the love that we have for each other and the willingness to grow through the good and the bad times that got us to where we are today.
