Happy Friday! I hope you're all looking forward to a lovely weekend ahead.- I wanted to throw out a little idea for you, and just see what you think:
I happen to LOVE Valentine's Day! I think it's a holiday that has gotten such a cheesy rap - mainly thanks to commercialism and teenagers. But Valentine's Day is a wonderful excuse to celebrate love. If you're married - it's a wonderful day to spend with your soul mate - reminding him of why you married him, and making fun new memories together. In fact, we celebrate V-day for all 14 days of February leading up to it! - If you're not married, instead of feeling sorry for yourself (for not having a Valentine), why not focus on making the friends in your life feel loved? Make them a baked treat, hand craft some valentines - just like when you were in elementary school - it will make their day!
So here's my thought: I'm thinking of hijacking Living Graciously for the next two weeks leading up to Valentine's Day with all kinds of ideas to make it a very special time of year. BUT, only if you think it a good idea. Will you jump on the bandwagon with me? Will you contribute ideas to share with the class? Will you celebrate love in all its forms this year? You can respond via the poll on my right hand sidebar (because I know you're all a bit comment-shy ;-)). Talk to me over the weekend girls so I can decide which direction to head! -
Before I go, I don't know about you, but I was SO thankful for yesterday's quest! Did anybody else get their dishwasher all sparkly clean? I am so ashamed to show you these before pictures. I swear - there were almost mushrooms growing in there. YUK! But, now it is fresh as a flower and ready to go! AND - it took me 10 minutes. Um, why did I put that little chore off so long??? Here are my photos for your before and after viewing pleasure. Excuse me while I go hide in my closet from embarrassment...
