Have Heart

“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.”
--Sex and the City
I really like Valentine's Day. I know this may sound strange coming from a single girl, but I really do. I think it's a cute holiday. The red, the pink, the hearts, the cuteness...it's just fun.

I hate when people hate valentine's day. It's not like it's ONLY about having a romantic relationship (see above quote). I feel like I love a lot of people and it's nice to have a random day in February to celebrate this. Let's face it, February is generally cold and awful, it's nice to have something to be warm and fuzzy for a few days. And really though, if I had a boyfriend/husband I wouldn't want anything more than a card (okay, maybe a new handbag...but that's not something isolated to holidays)

Here are some of the decorations I've put out this year to get in the spirit.

The wreath I found at Michael's
Candy hearts are my favorite.
I found this for $1.99 and added the red ribbon.
I love this sign for my bulletin board.
This is my favorite sign that I picked up last weekend at my favorite country store.
A few years ago, I decided that I was going to spend Valentine's Day doing something I really like OR treating myself to something that I really want. This year I've decided that I'm going to get a facial because I've never done that before. I also plan to go out to dinner with friends and go see Confessions of a Shopaholic. I am really looking forward to this plan. It's Valentastic!

How will you spend your Valentine's day this year?

It's funny because we were just talking about what we were going to do on V-day.

Probably not a lot. I try to avoid the crowds. I'd much rather spend a quiet evening at home.

Hope you have a Great One!

Very fun! I am not sure what we are doing for Valentine's Day yet. I don't like actually going out on that day because EVERYONE is out...so we'll see. I am all for a nice, quiet night in.

I love your Valentine's decorations! I hope you enjoy your facial. You should splurge on a massage too!

I like your plan. A facial is a special treat. Enjoy it.

We haven't finalized our plans yet. Most likely go out to dinner.
