It is amazing to me how much I look forward to holidays especially when I decorate for them. I recently brought out our Valentine decor and it just puts me in a mood of anticipation and joy.

It will be here before you know it!!
And just so you know, even if you don't have a husband or a boyfriend there are a TON of ways to celebrate Valentine's Day and have a GREAT time!! One of my favorite Valentine's was when Blake was living in Canada and we had a GIRLS ONLY Valentine's Day. We started with dinner together at my house, then we went and visited a couple of local florists after store hours. Why? Because we wanted to collect some flowers they were throwing away. We wanted to deliver them to people we knew who needed some joy that holiday. We thought if we came home empty handed, at least we had fun together. However, I will NEVER forget the BUCKETS and BUCKETS of absolutely AMAZING flowers we brought home because the florists weren't able to sell all of them. They told us they were just going to have toss them. Then, we took those flowers and delivered them to people we wanted to bless. It truly is a Valentine's I will NEVER forget!
