Create a Little Love

It’s Valentine’s week! ย Just incase all the pink, hearts, and chocolate candy filling the aisles of every store didn’t remind you ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t believe we are halfway through the month of February…time sure flies!

A couple of weeks ago Brilliant Earth, a jewelry company that specializes in ethically sourced diamonds and engagement rings, reached out to me to help them out with a campaign to “Create a Little Love.”

This was the first I had heard of Brilliant Earth, but I liked the idea behind the campaign. ย Brilliant Earth is getting bloggers around the web to display the word “love” in a way that is creative and unique to the individual. ย We all have different ways of expressing ourselves so I am excited to see how the other bloggers interpreted the project.

Here is my representation:

I chose to use my running shoes to represent the word “love” because I LOVE being active. ย I love challenging myself, taking care of my body, and striving to be a better me. ย I know it’s not very romantic to put “love” with running shoes, but I’ve always heard the saying “you must first learn to love yourself before you can love anyone else.” ย So if you think about it, the romantic kind of love really starts with the self love…whatever that may mean for you. ย Self love is something I am always working on, but nobody’s perfect…right?

On that note, I also have an awesome workout for you to check out. ย A COUPLE’s workout so it’s kind of a Valentiney workout…of course you can do the workout on your own, but it is really great if you have a partner to do it with too!

Something about knowing that someone else is suffering through the tough workout with me always makes me work a little harder.

I actually created the workout with the intent to do it with Brian, but at the last minute he decided he wanted to sleep in a little bit…I did the couple’s workout on my own and STILL got a good sweat in ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some videos demonstrating some of the exercises:

Enjoy the workout!

Your Turn:

  • Tell me one way you have spread the love recently–either for yourself or for someone else!


  1. I love to bake for others so I always try and make baked goods for those close to me to show my love and appreciation for them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Beautiful picture… so artsy ๐Ÿ™‚ There is an organization called “Kindness Counts” attempting to virtually spread kindness worldwide as part of a campaign called feed the deed. My sister and I are bringing school supplies to give to the children when we are in Peru.

  3. Sent a card to a friend who has been on my mind but lives far away – love knowing it will be a welcome surprise in their mail box and doesn’t cost a lot of money!

  4. Cute workout! I am not a big fan of working out with the hubby, but my mom and I workout together on occasion- I will have to keep this in mind!

    • Yes!!! I guess I failed to mention that this doesn’t have to be boy/girl couples or even romantic couples…any couple will do!!!

  5. I like your representation using your running shoes, Tara! I think it is so creative! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Boo Brian! Perhaps the two of you can knock it out together on Valentine’s Day? ๐Ÿ™‚
