I woke up Sunday with this drive to blog about a really great Valentine's Day message. But then as I started writing and I was like this sounds so crazy I need to experience the day first and then write about it later. So I scratched it. I have a special place in my heart for this day because it just reminds me that no matter if you are in a relationship or not you are loved. Either by family, friends, or yourself. It can be a really big day filled with deep thoughts or a day filled with handfuls of red, white, and pink peanut M&Ms!!
My hubby and I exchanged our cards and he surprised me with the movie Bright Star the romantic, yet sad, love story between poet John Keats and fashion forward Fanny Braun. (I was so excited).
Then we took a ride over to my parents for lunch. That is were the Valentine's Day light bulb went off. My mom is a holiday decorator. She has a flag that she hangs outside the house for every major holiday and I think ones she makes up:) So the house was a treasure trove of everything that represented the day. I feel like you walk right into LOVE when you are at my parents. I may a bit bias considering that it is my childhood home. You just get a sense that everything is right with the world when you enter a place that just makes you feel so warm and fuzzy. I hope your Love holiday was filled with lots of warm fuzzies too!!
