Be My Valentine

Bear with me here, this was meant to publish on Friday, but due to the impressive nature of Mega Bus's internet connection, did not make it to the internet. So, I'm publishing it now...

Another year, another Valentines day of unrealized projects. I swear, I had DIY's planned! We were gonna make stuff! It was gonna be awesome! Oh well, maybe next time.

I know people have varying opinions about Valentines day, but I've grown to like it over the years. I think it's a nice reminder to take some time- in the middle of cold, dark, seasonally depressing winter- to show the ones around us that we love them. Whether you have a significant other or not, it's not a bad thing to show a little love to your family, friends, coworkers, cats, whathaveyou.

Above are a few gift ideas, but you certainly don't need to spend money to show your feelings. Make something! Write a letter! Bake! I'm sure most of these gifts seem really cliche, you're probably thinking: Cologne? Jewelry? Lingerie for christsakes? But these are all items that you (I) might not purchase for my/yourself.

What are you doing for Valentines day? Any Special plans? Do you like to celebrate it, or forget about it?

Cute picks! I love Valentine's Day. I think it's fun and brightens winter a little bit.

I received that exact ring yesterday (with a pair of matching earrings)! I love it so much. :)

And my Valentine's Day consisted of takeout Greek, the Mortal Kombat movie, dark chocolate, and a good bit of cuddling.
