12 Days of Valentines Day

Today marks Day One, of the 12 Days of Valentines Day. For the next 12 days we will be celebrating love and friendship with color and creativity.

Here are some suggestions that might help you celebrate:
  1. Gestures can be as big or small as you like
  2. Recipients can be anyone you know - bake for a neighbor, leave a treat for the mailman, send a card to your college roommate. See what I mean?
  3. Lots of food items look cute in a heart shape.
  4. Wearing red & pink "counts" as celebrating. So does digging a heart necklace out of your jewelry box and wearing it.
  5. Celebrating this way should make YOU (and everyone around you) feel good and light-hearted.
I will give you a suggestion here each day, but it is just to give you a nudge.
Won't you celebrate with me? The more you talk about it, the more others will be intrigued. "What was today?" they'll ask.

Day 1: Hang something Valentines-y on your front door.

I'm with you! I started yesterday by giving a history of Valentine's and Yikes it was kind of yucky (the part about the guy sending his beating heart?) the rest was interesting though...
I showed a picture of my Valentine's tablescape and took a Chocolate cake to my son's company for them to share!
Hope your day is great!

Valentine's is only half-heartedly (sorry) celebrated here but we've decided to go to the beachside for dinner. We spent a lovely evening there two years ago on Valentine's Day so we're going back to repeat it.
It has been great catching up with all of your posts Anne. Thank you for reintroducing me to the blogging world and all of my lovely cyber friends.
