Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, My Gorgeous Girls!
 I sure hope your day has been perfect so far, & that you truly feel...as loved as you are! Today I'm teaming with one of my very favorite beauties, Kori from Blonde Episodes & sharing all of our thoughts on what love means to us.

Wow. Where do I even begin? Well...since it is Valentine's Day & I am madly in love...I'll have to first & foremost...dedicate this post to my Beautiful, Amazing, Oh So Handsome, Makes me so proud every day, Kindest soul I know...my B. To say that I love him is THE BIGGEST UNDERSTATEMENT of all time! I adore him, and I could never imagine a day without him. He is my Husband, My Best Friend, My Family, My Roommate, My Partner in Business & in Life...he is my world & there's no other team I'd rather be on! I love this man...with all that lives inside of me...and everything else that doesn't fit! I just love him. I love him! Happy "forever" Valentine's Day, Baby!

I love my Family...so much more than love & so much more than any words could ever express. I could not have asked for a more wonderful Ohana & they really are...heaven sent. They've shown me more love in my lifetime...than any 4 people ever have, and more than any one person ever could dream of.

I love my Friends. They're as great as it gets & there's so much love between us! We really do...have each other's backs & to know this...is as priceless as it gets! I love you all. With every beat of my heart.

And of course...my precious D&G. The reason I can't wait to go home...the very second I leave. They are my babies & I love them with all of my heart. They're the best part of all of my days, and my very favorite cuddle-bugs. Mommy couldn't love you more...if I had two hearts!

Valentine's Day to me...is about love in every form, not just the love between couples. It's a day to celebrate everything & everyone who fills your life with love. If you are spending this day with someone/anyone special at all...it is a perfect day! And if you're spending it alone. YOU are as special as it gets, so it's even more perfect!

To ALL you single, gorgeous girls out there...don't listen to a SINGLE word about "still" being single or feel the least bit sad on this day! I got married at 33 (last year), & I have never been happier! The difference between 20 & 30 is huge (not in size, but in your wisdom/experience)...so don't rush! Just because other people have these self-made "time-lines"...don't fall for that BS! "I will be married by 30 with 3 kids"...Can you say Kim K! You see how well it worked for her! (God Bless Her. It's so sad. Take your time, Kim. You're enough...all by yourself.) Think about it...how many people do you know, your age...who were married, divorced & are single parents already? Don't let that happen to you. Take your time, live your life, and in God's time, not yours...it will happen. Let it happen. Just because you're taken, doesn't mean you're loved. NEVER forget that. One of my favorite quotes for you guys is..."Dear Girl, don't worry if you're single. God is looking at you right now saying..."I'm saving this girl for someone special". WAIT for the special one. ANYONE can meet someone & call him "the one", take your time & really LIVE it. Ok...sermon's over! HUGE hug to all of you & your AWESOME Single-ness! Now go out there & rule to world!

Happy, Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!
You are Loved & wished this absolute world!


With all my Love,

Show Him How Much You Love Him!

Hey Guys! 
Looking for something creative & cute to give your love for Valentine's Day? 
Look no further.
Here's a little something I made for B a few years ago, & I've loved...ever since.
A box full of all the reasons I love him. (More than 150 of them!)
Something they can read every day...or just when they need a little extra love. Also good for YOU to read...so you'll never forget the reasons you fell in love with him in the first place! 

I always refer to girls, only because I assume mostly girls read my posts, but if you are a guy reading this...your girl would DIE if you made this for her! Trust me! Anyone would love this & would LOVE to know they many ways you love them! 

Here's what you'll need...
1. Some sort of box/container to put everything in
2. Fun embellishments to make it extra cute (stickers, bling, pictures, etc.)
3. Strips of any kind of paper you want. I cut mine from a spiral notebook I had, filled with paper that was textured & kinda thick.
4. A heart stamp to add to each one...if you want, of course.
5. Tiny wood clothes pins. I got mine from Michael's.
6. A heart full of love...for the one you love.

Cut all your paper in strips, and think of all the many ways your love makes your heart smile. Mine is filled with sexy reasons, sentimental things, inside jokes, character favorites, ways he makes me feel loved, the man I see in him, his good in this world...

There's no right or wrong...just share your story...and your love. 

Enjoy for many years to come! 

If you make one...I'd LOVE to see it! 
Happy Creating! 

Love to all of you, 

Decorate With Love

Hi, Gorgeous Beauties!
Sure hope you're having a beautiful February so far!
I'm still out of town on a business trip, but wanted to share some of my Valentine's Day Decor...before it's Valentine's Day...next year! Good Lord time flies! It's kinda scary actually. I didn't take pictures of my craft room goodies before I left, but here's the rest of my house...just in case you wanna see. Have a beautiful night & I'll be back soon! Hopefully tomorrow. I have a cute V Day Gift Idea to share! Huge hugs from me to you! 

The beautiful wreaths are from The Privileged Door , the adorable "CUPID" letters are from Spell It With Style , & the oh so cute & glittery "LOVE" garland is from The Crepe Confectionary...all on ETSY. Not only do I love them...the sellers are just as wonderful! Stop by & show them some love! Adorable decor for all holidays/occasions! 

LOVE...in your home...& in your hearts,
