Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so take a minute to celebrate the ones you love!

A good old fashioned Valentine card is always appreciated, whether it’s from your partner/spouse or your mom, getting a card in the mail is always sure to brighten your day.

Writer’s block?  Don’t sweat it!  Don’t get too hung up on coming up with writing something deeply poetic, a simple “I love you” or “I appreciate all you do ” will go a long way.

If you have little kids, having them make Valentine’s for friends and family members is a great activity that is sure to bring a big smile to the recipient.

Even babies can get in on the fun!  Put ink or washable paint on their feet and position them in the shape of a heart on a piece of paper and voila!  You made a heart made out of baby’s feet.  Adorable!

You can also celebrate by sending cards to girlfriends or host a fun little Valentine gift exchange party (including chocolate and champagne, of course!)  Hey, who doesn’t need an excuse for a girls night?!

And of course, Valentine’s Day is a popular time for engagements!  If your special someone pops the big question over the holiday, be sure to come in and visit us when you’re ready to start planning your big day!

XOXO,

Maureen
