Valentine’s Day was never really that “special” to me until Matthew came along. You know when people say, “You just know” when you find the right one? Well, it was true for me and it is still hard to describe what that means. I teach a group of teenage girls every Sunday and they often ask me that question. The best way for me to break it down is that you have complete trust and know that he loves you beyond condition. You know that with every fiber of your being. That is the best way for me to describe “knowing”.
Once we were married Valentine’s Day sort of took a back seat to our anniversary. But, now I have two new reasons to make Valentine’s Day memorable and they have also stolen my heart. It is so much fun for me to make them homemade Valentine cards that express their personality to give to their friends, but I also love to give them cards that are unique for them. Every Valentine’s Day morning I generally make some sort of fun and special treat that let’s them know they are dear to my heart. I also like to pack a little something special in Graham’s lunch box. Hey, I’ve got to be sentimental and mushy before he starts telling me to stop!
I am one of those people that spends hours in the card section trying to find “the perfect” one for the person. That’s just me. This year I was able to do the browsing directly from the luxury of my own comfy bed. It didn’t take me long to find the perfect card for my honey this year from Cardstore.com. There were so many different chic choices that also expressed our sense of style and allowed me to personalize… oh how I LOVE to personalize!
The same was true for the card I created for the boys. I had cards created, verified and in the cart in about 5 minutes flat! Now, if I had been at our local gift shop browsing through the stacks of cards you would probably still find me there… browsing… and thinking… and not personalizing. This was the best option hands down!
