Montage Monday – Valentine’s Blitz February 2, 2010
Do you love the feeling in the weeks before Valentines day? Do you love strolling through the shopping mall and seeing all the reds, pinks, word of love? It makes me happy, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
I also wonder why we need a holiday to show everyone our love of one another. Shouldn’t we show them every day? Give them special kisses and make sure they know? My daughter’s preschool is doing special Valentine’s day activities this week, they are making mailboxes out of tissue boxes and making valentines for one another. Next week they have their special Valentine’s day party. This brings back memories of Valentine’s day in elementary & high school – it was always a very exciting day for certain girls and boys who received lots of valentines, but also made others feel horrible and left out. It makes me sad to think of little sensitive souls feeling sad and unloved.
Today’s Montage Monday will be another exciting blitz of love, hearts and Valentines special items – for yourself or that someone special in your life:
Montage Monday – Love is in the air January 25, 2010
Call me silly – naïve and a slave to cultural money-making holidays but I LOVE VALENTINES DAY! I’m not crazy decorate my whole house in pink & red streamers and book a table at the most expensive restaurants. However, I do love the idea of doing something small and personalized for my hubby and have a special day.
Things get a little crazier when you have two kids, babysitters are hard to find on the day itself, but really, you can celebrate on any night. This year is going to be a little low-key, finances aren’t all that hot and my babysitters are dealing with their own issues, busy globetrotting, afraid to drive in the dark, etc. I’m thinking special night at home with a unique adult dinner menu (no chicken fingers here) with a delectable desert.
Here are a few things from various Indie sources to inspire you:
