My husband, John, while we were watching a Hallmark movie says, "Valentine's Day is just a fake holiday created by retailers to make more money" or something to that effect! This said after I tell him how much I like this time of year. I don't think he realizes how much I enjoy gifts...getting gifts, making gifts, giving gifts. A while back, I read the book, The Five Love Languages, and discovered that I feel loved and appreciated when someone goes out of their way to give me a "gift." And it doesn't have to be big or expensive. It just has to say, "I thought of you."
A romantic at heart,
I love the idea of LOVE.
I love roses and hearts and red and diamonds and chocolate covered cherries and love stories...
this girl was made for Valentine's Day.
So, this year I decided to dress things up a bit. I put up my little tree and am decorating it with mostly handmade ornaments. It's adorable! A friend of mine, Barb, and I went shopping yesterday and I found some vintage Valentine cards that I am making into ornaments.
