Valentine's in Style

I adore Valentine's Day. I always have. My love for this day goes all the way back to elementary school and the wonderful parties we would have in class. Oh, it was so much fun to make the bags and have classmates drop in the cards. I miss those days.

Every year, I celebrate the day. Many, many years I was single, but I never felt sad or alone. I always looked at the day as a day of loving myself. I would treat myself to something - candy or a novelty item. Now that I'm married, I get to spend it with the love of my life. This year, I wrote a poem for him and uploaded it to his Kindle. His deployment is Sunday, so I wanted to give him something very personal that is easy for him to have and carry. He gave me a beautiful bouquet of white roses; white roses are one of my favorites. They are my favorite type of rose.

 I like to create a feel and mood on Valentine's Day. With that in mind, I have some great finds for you to use to celebrate the day of love. Who says every day can't be Valentine's Day? It's all about love, and loving  yourself should be at the top of your list.
