Austrian Hearts for Valentine’s Day

We’ve all got hearts on our mind today, and I thought I would share some pics from our ski trip last year to Austria, where you see hearts all over.

This was a special trip, being our last March break together as a family since our oldest was going off to university later that year. So after years of taking our family holidays a little bit for granted, we realized they were almost over, and made a point of celebrating in a big way.

The hubby’s family is from Austria, and being an avid skier, he’s always wanted to take the girls to ski in the motherland. It was now or never, and so off we went. I managed to tack on a little stopover in Paris, just for fun (you can see our adorable Paris apartment here), and we finished off with a few days in Vienna. It was an amazing time, and we truly made the most of our holiday, knowing that it would always get harder to schedule times like this.

We stayed in a little farmhouse in the village of St. Anton in the Alps. It was a cosy apartment that looked like Heidi’s grandfather built it. This is our room. I think the Seven Dwarves once slept here.

The sweetest thing was all the decorative touches in every corner. What I really loved was that the decor was really charming and traditional. In fact you saw this all over Austria, quite the opposite of the trendy and continually changing magazine-looking décor we go for over here.

The Austrians know how to make a place warm and welcoming, and they have a charming habit of hanging hearts everywhere. It’s a nice touch, and I brought a few home myself. Since then I’ve made some of my own in pottery studio. I hang them here and there. Just spreading the love.

I hope you have your own love-filled day this Valentine’s day. Whether it’s love from a friend or lover, a mother or a child, a human or a pooch, I hope you’ve got lots to surround yourself with today. I’m spending the day with my favourite peeps, so I’ll be covered.

Here are some extra hearts for you!
