I really did have the best intentions of sharing a few Valentine’s Day greetings with all of you. After all Valentine’s Day is truly one of my favorite holidays. It always has been. I remember one year getting a heart shaped jewelry dish from my Mom. It had the cutest little cherub lying on its belly on the corner and love written in bright red. It was one of my favorite items I had ever received. I had it up until a few years ago. Unfortunately the little cherub broke off into a million little bits thanks to my own little child and it was unable to be repaired. None the less I still can picture it as vivid as ever. I always look at the thrift stores for one to replace it but I haven’t had any luck so far.
This year though I was given some new heart shaped items. Ok they were not actually given to me. I did what I do every year. I went and picked out my own gift. I know it may sound strange to some but for my dear hubby and me it is nearly as traditional as eggs at Easter. It is his way of saying I love you. That way I am never disappointed. It works the same way for every holiday and while surprise might be nice I know too many people who have been surprised with ice cube trays and new vacuums over the years. So this year I purchased a couple of vintage items from one of my favorite junkin’ spots.
Always remember that every day is a good day to be in love with the idea of love and never forget to tell those you love that you love them. Your heart and time is the greatest give you can ever give and theirs is the best gift to receive.
