Valentines Day

ok so, I don’t even know how to start this post to talk about my Valentines Day present from Kev. I am already getting choked up writing this. If you have been reading my blog for awhile you know that I write a lot about Kev and how much I love him. When I started this blog I thought about whether I would share personal things like that, but honestly I don’t know how I couldn’t. It is who I am, it is something I truly believe in. I think the most important thing I want to get across in my blog is not about fashion, or art or food but that Love is something that is worth it. The love in our lives can make such a difference. That includes love in marriage, with family, with friends and love to the people around us. Can you imagine a world were we all really just loved one another. There is so much hate and destruction out there. I just want to share a little love with everyone as mushy and stupid as that sounds.

As I have mentioned before, Me and Kev got engaged and married in a matter of 3 weeks. We got married on a cruise where the only things we picked out were my dress and his tux. We got married in the Viking Lounge on the cruise ship in Key West, FL at 10am in the morning by a crazy JP that came on the boat just to marry us. It was a ceremony that was totally about us- no decorations or planning that distracted us from that. Kev’s sister took some video of that day on her camera that I have not seen since the day of the wedding. It has been on her camera since and the camera has been lost and for many other reason we have just not gotten it off there. So when Kev sat me down to watch his Valentines day video and I saw the video start I totally lost it. I cried (like balling) thru this entire video. I think the thing that means so much is (of course other than him showing me how much he loves me) is this message of spreading love. I leave you to watch the video first and then i will talk more about the project he started of Withoutyouitsjustnot.us.. It’s only 4mins long and I promise you its way more than a few clips of our wedding. I hope you will watch… (if you click on the link you can see it bigger on the vimeo site)

Love of my life from Jen Lula on Vimeo.

isn’t the out take right at the end so cute? I love it!

So now that Kev’s year long secret project is out, it’s our project to work on together. This is where you come in!! We want to keep this idea of spreading love going. If there is someone that you love in your life, we ask that you would visit the site withoutyouitsjustnot.us and print out one of the flyers. Take pictures of yourself holding the flyer in places you live, or a place that has meaning between you and that loved one. Write your loved ones name all over the flyer if you want so they know. Then send us the pictures at withoutyouitsjustnotus@gmail.com. Every so often when we collect enough pictures we will be making videos with the photos and sharing them on jenloveskev as well as withoutyouitsjustnot.us. What a fun way to make this large world seem a little smaller by bring us all together with the idea of Love. Print out tons of posters if you want and place them all around- get the word out and see how far this can go!!!!

Remember Love is Worth it.

  12. I’ve been reading your blog for a while but I’m not sure I’ve ever commented. I just had to today. My husband and I are on our own personal love mission (Project NEW-lyweds, visit our blog if you’re intrigued), and it makes me so happy to see another young couple so unabashedly in love.

  16. I’m at work right now, but I’m totally watching your video when I get home! With all the planning I did for my wedding, I totally spaced on having someone shoot a video of the ceremony. What a lovely way to rejoice in your love for one another!

    It’s funny that you mention the concept of love in a worldly view. I just posted something similar last week, but on more of a sober note. You can read it here: http://stephanieisgettingmarried.blogspot.com/2010/02/love-is-all-you-need.html

  34. That is so sweet and beautiful I almost cried. Seriously. You guys are an amazing couple!

  35. Thank you for this beautiful post! I won’t go into specifics, but my beautiful hubby asked me to marry him 11 yrs. ago amist insurmountable odds. I was given a “death sentence” in my late 20’s and vowed to live alone for the rest of my life. He was my best friend, and soon found that he and i were madly in love. We’ve been together over 17 yrs, through alot of “close calls” and are still each other’s best friend. We support each other and he and I are the pillars of our temple, we stand side by side to hold up this beautiful home together. You and Kev are truly blessed. I am so glad to see others who cherish the true nature of love.

  36. Such a beautiful gesture and so inspiring 🙂

    Lucky girl!

  37. LOVE IT! Kev is very clever. We’ll make sure it gets around hotlanta. LOL It is seriously awesome. And I really loved seeing the video of your wedding. I love that it was so personal, if I could do it all over again I would do that too. It looked so perfect. Really though, this is amazing.

  38. […] Um, can we all “awwwww” at the awesomosity and utter sweetness of this Valentine’s Day gift? I definitely plan to participate in the project […]

    Its so great you have someone like Kev, Jen…the two of you seem like you have a lovely, beautiful life together (full of love and beauty – you & your house is adorable!) Its wonderful that you have a blog to document your life together – and what a fitting name, JenlovesKev. This video gave me goosebumps.

  49. wow! so this is the first time I am checking out your blog and what a powerful 1st post to see! I’m not gonna like I totally dropped a tear. I’m just starting to blog myself and looking to different blogs for some inspiration as I am totally clueless to what I’m doing 🙂

  52. Kansas City will be coming your way soon! I love this idea and have already got 3 posters to take pics with!

  53. I like you best when you focus on non-outfit/fashion things. Don’t get me wrong, your style is great, but what initially brought me to your blog were the little things, the personal things. I love the personal aspect of you and your blog and I hope your new opportunities don’t make you stray too far from things like this. You and Kev are truely blessed to have found one another and the fact that you have a husband that loves you so much he isn’t afraid to shout it from the rooftops makes me smile.

  54. Wow, he’s amazing, I was tearing up also. Jen you are one very blessed girl! 🙂

    Perfect.

  56. So, I just cried at my computer. This is the best gift ever! I will definitely be putting up some flyers!

  57. That’s such a good idea, but i didn’t understand the first words of your love ‘cus i couldn’t hear his voice + i don’t manage to dominate the english so well. I’ll appreciate if you can write it to me or something. And well i don’t have a boyfriend or something close to it, but i’ll share it ‘cus love has many other ways to show! And actually LOVE is what world needs.
    So congratulations to both!

  58. Oh my gosh i’m in tears!!!!
    He is amazing!
    I LOVE this!!!!!

    Great idea!!
