Happy Heart Day!

Today at Kelly's Korner the "Show Us Your Life" topic is Valentine's Day-Dates and Ideas. I know many people don't like Valentine's Day for one reason or another but, I have always liked it for some reason. It isn't that I ever got a really special gift or had anything just wonderful happen to me. I just like it. I like all the hearts and flowers at the stores. I like all the candy. I like the idea of a day completely devoted to love. I don't feel like it has to be a holiday only celebrated between people in a romantic relationship. I like to use the day to let all the people I love know how much they mean to me.

This Valentine's Day, Matt and I are going to stay home. The boys are going to be with my momand dad . I plan on making a special dinner and for once being able to sit down and enjoy it. We are going to take our time eating. We will not have to tell anyone to sit down, to turn around or eat three more bites before you get up. I know it isn't much of a celebration but I am really excited. I know I won't get anything from him and I will not give him anything but, we will spend time together, which in the end is all I really want.

I hope that you and your special someone have a very happy Valentine's Day however you decide to spend it.


  1. You are the second person to bring up the fact that you don't have to be with someone on Valentine's. I never ever thought about it like that, so thank you for allowing me to see that. I, like you, won't be alone for Valentine's and I'm totally taking the time to soak up the simple things in life!

    Have fun!

  2. i think that sounds like a fabulous valentines day!

  3. We kind of skipped Valentines this year... due to the sick kids and parents. :) We will try next year to make it!
