*A Day Of Love*

Happy Valentine's Day everyone....  I don't totally buy in to the whole idea of today, but I do appreciate a little token to make the day...  a card picked for me with love goes a very long way with me.  I hate how roses and chocolates are so much more expensive today than they will be tomorrow.

I do think that Valentine's Day is a good reminder to keep the people you love in your heart and in your thoughts...  sometimes our lives are so busy we forget to tell those important people how much they mean to us... and February 14th is hard to miss, thus making us all think of those we love.

It doesn't have to be a spouse or a partner or anyone romantic.... it's a day, in my mind, to make sure that the important people in your life (your spouse, your kids, your parents, your siblings, your friends) know that they are always in your heart.

With all that said, I don't make Valentine's cards...  I don't often make a card for Bruce as they are never "just right"....  so he gets a Hallmark greeting today.

So, here is my non-Valentine Valentine's Day card LOL
