If you are anything like me, holidays zip by without so much as a nod in my direction. I mean, I am lucky to catch big days, like Christmas, Easter, and my kid’s birthdays.
The little holidays get caught up in the mix of everyday. They are here and gone before I can wrap my head around the word celebrate.
I jump into full panic mode if my son comes home from school and tells me he wants to wear a green t-shirt the next day for St. Patty’s day. I’m not Irish, but I have nothing against Leprechauns and my husband happens to love corned beef and cabbage. If I miss St. Patty’s day, I miss the sales on one of my husband’s favorite meals. Not smart.
So this year, I am determined to stay on top of the holidays, big and small.
I kinda love February. I mean, it’s smack in the middle of the dreariest part of winter, and I look at all the red and pink hearts as a smidgeon of hope. There is life after winter.
Not only do I get to celebrate my birthday in February, but it’s also Valentine’s Day.
Like I said, I’m not so great with holidays, so my family is lucky to get a kiss from me, but I have been learning something. Celebrations are important, even on a spiritual level, and while Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly Biblical, the principal of celebrating is all over the Bible.
That’s another post though. Today is all about inspiration and I am getting way too wordy.
So without further ado, here’s some inspiration.
This heart wreath, by Nest of Posies, is my absolute favorite. It’s gorgeous and I’d love one just like it.
This year, I am going to do some Valentine’s Day decorating, so expect a DIY post or two filled with hearts.
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
