I think Valentine's Day gets a bad rap. What's not to love about a holiday filled with snail mail and punchy pops of red and pink hearts? Cynics say it's an over-commercialized holiday created by the card companies, while the unattached have coined February 14th as Singles Awareness Day. Boo, I say to the pessimists out there! Who would turn down a reason to celebrate love and life? I know this post has gone all glitter and rainbows quickly, but I'm taking this opportunity to remind you to love your life. Every detail of it. Acknowledge the love you give and get from your family and friends. Become smitten with the life you've been given and grateful for daily blessings. While I believe we should treat every day in such a manner, it's easy to let the drab details of everyday life cloud our vision. Instead, let's use today to reflect on the good. Now go on and cut your sandwich in a cheesy heart shape, and carpe the heck out of the diem!
While you scarf down that sandwich, here are a few things that make my heart content...
He(art) It! / You're A Gem / Precious in Pink
The Fine 2012 Valentine / A Manicure / Classic Chick Flicks / Why I Love You... / Bow Belt / Snazzy Sequin Heart / Strawberry Cupcakes / Sassy Sunglasses Holder
What do YOU love most about life?
Do tell. I can't wait to hear!
Have an a-mazing Tuesday!
P.S. It's not too late to send a Valentine to the ones you love! Check out these links...
