My Funny Valentine---A Photo Contest

Happy Tuesday, y'all! I'm taking a break from Home Tour Tuesday this week to share something new with you. Fortunately, Miss Daphne will be holding down the HTT fort by keeping everything up and running!

You may remember this post, from a few weeks back where I briefly mentioned a Valentine's Day Photo Contest with a plethora of fabulous sponsors, co-hosted by Joni from Six Cherries on Top and yours truly. With today being the first day of February (How did that happen?), it's time to share all the nitty gritty details of our little Heart Day photo challenge.

And since I rarely ever post without at least one picture of Sweet Bean, I couldn't help but share a shot taken during last Valentine's. Y'all know me, I'm a sucker for holiday-themed photo shoots, so I can't wait to share this year's pictures with you. And since I love to tease, wait until you see GG's outfit for this year! I heart it!

Now, onto the business at hand---

Welcome to the very first My Funny Valentine, cutest couple photo contest! Joni and I are so thrilled to be hosting and can only hope that y'all are as excited as we are to get started!

But before getting into all the details of the contest, here are a few more pictures to hopefully inspire and motivate your inner photog.

And Sweet Bean's favorite...
