Oh my gosh, it's so hard to believe that its 2013 and I'm making Valentine's cards already! Ya know, I really love the idea of Valentine's Day, but the ex and I never, ever celebrated it. I'm not really sure why we didn't. I vaguely remember a conversation 18 years ago when we met about how it was a commercialized holiday blah blah blah...so I guess it has something to do with that conversation. Funny how we do things because its what we've always done, huh?
Anyway, I like the idea of setting aside some time to let the person you're with know that they are special to you, but in a private kinda way if that makes sense. I don't buy into the whole idea that you have to go out to dinner, or hire a sitter and sneak away somewhere. I think I'd be happy with an acknowledgement that I'm special to someone...just because I'm me. Maybe a nice quiet dinner after the kids are in bed. Nothing fancy. No flowers or chocolates necessary, a hug will do.
What really makes me happy about this card is that I was able to use some paper that I had leftover from last year, and I used an MS punch that hasn't seen daylight in a long time. The stamp set is the new Lovey Dovey Sentiments from MFT Stamps.
So tell me...do you like Valentine's Day or not?
