Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! What are your plans tonight?
As a child I thought Valentine's Day was pretty cool and celebrated it.
Ah, I loved to give the paper Valentine's card to my friends, but as I grew older I started to care less and less about it.
(I think we women love the romance, chocolates, flowers, Valentine's Day, even if we pretend we don't!)

Some of us may be jaded about this holiday, but Valentine's Day is all about love, so let's embrace it, give it, and celebrate it every day of the year, not just today!

On this day, if you are alone or single, spend the day treating yourself to something special. You do deserve it!
Use this day to do what you enjoy doing most and feel good about yourself, and celebrate love in every form it comes.

Who says that people need a companion for this one day of the year?
Hope you all have a wonderful day today.

My sweets, I just want to reach through the screen and hug you all! xx

Sandy said...

Hello sweet Betty, so nice to meet you! I love your blog and your photo's are so pretty. I was trying to figure out where you out but gave up LOL, I know you are in snow somewhere though.

I went down to the end of this page and loved what you wrote:

"I get attached to things. Holding on some things from the past-old letters, photos, decorative items, mementos of past delightful events- it is important to my sanity. When I lose something that was special to me I get sad for days..."

I'm the same way, so sentimental me lol also I love what you wrote about friends, (goes the same with family).

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Thank you for your sweet comments ♥
