Valentine's Day


As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short but hey!

How was your Valentine's Day?

I love Valentine's Day, although I really hate the commercialism of it.  :0/

Valentine's Day was always my Grandmother's favorite holiday.  She always used to tell us about my Grandfather coming home from the war on February 14th.  I always thought that was the sweetest story.

When we were kids she used to always have plenty of supplies on hand for us to make Valentine's Day decorations and cards.  Even years later after I had married and had my own kids, she would take out those decorations and cards and display them every year!  

She is always on my mind this time of year. <3 center="">

This year the hubs and I spent a really nice day together.  We did a little shopping and had a nice dinner.

I thought I'd share with you a little gift that I put together for my daughter and her bestie.  I picked up some cute Valentine's Day flip flops at The Christmas Tree Shop, picked up pedicure gift certificates at our favorite nail salon and tied them together with a pretty bow.  Matching pedis!  They loved them!
