My family only had one Valentine's Day tradition; my dad always bought a Valentine for everyone else in my family and wrote them a note about the ways they are special and how much he loves them. Getting a card from my dad in the mail is still one of the things I love most about Valentine's Day.
I realized that I don't really have any Valentine's Day decorations, and I think it's really hard to find something that's not too cutesy or cheesy, but I needed something around the house to put me in a festive mood. I decided on something to hang around our candelier so I bought this garland on sale ar JoAnn's. Then I cut it up and strung the hearts on plain fishing line. Yes, it is still pretty cheesy, but I can't resist red glitter.
And if you're thinking that I have too much free time on my hands, yes, I really do! Larry is really busy this month so I'm trying to entertain myself. I also made a few more baby shower invitations, watched the Gilmore Girls, went on a walk, and fixed one of our toilets (my dad, who celebrates Thomas Crapper's birthday (the inventor of the toilet) would be so proud).
