Love Filled Day

Valentine's day can get lost on me us sometimes. Sometimes I find myself hoping for flowers or an over the top romantic gesture. This Valentine's Day morning when I woke up and there wasn't a rose petal path to a puppy with a ribbon, I was disappointed. It took a bit and then I realized, this day isn't about rose petals that would eventually stain my carpet and a puppy that would do the same; it is about loving life. Loving the ones closest to you. Now I am the worst offender at this. Today I took a deep breath, and thought about:

Walking into work and realizing, I am so lucky. I love my co-workers. 

Kevin (after I got over the lack of puppies) is the best thing that has happened to me.

A text from my mom made me smile.

My dad who always made each one of his killers feel extra special on Valentine's Day.

My girlfriends far away and near.

A sweet comment from a new blog friend will always without a doubt makes me smile every time. 

I do love Valentine's Day and do think that it should be celebrated, and today I am glad that I reminded myself how else I can love on Valentine's Day. My entire mood is happier today. I hope you all have love filled day today and everyday!


  1. I'll admit I was kinda jealous seeing all the FB flower pics but its just being with Keith that's good for me :)

  3. This is how I need to start seeing V-Day. Usually I'm just blah because I see the "romantic" side of it and I'm not all about that. But you're right... there are so many other reasons to celebrate the day!

  4. Hope you had a lovely day! Happy weekend! xo

  5. This is a sweet post :) It's always wonderful to remember what we have to be thankful for!

  6. Happy V-Day, girl!! Hope it was wonderful! Glad you're feeling good about what you have. Although a puppy would be so fun! Get Kevin to get you a puppy so I can come over and play with it when I'm in Tucson :P

  7. You are soooo RIGHT! It's about EVERYONE we love in our lives! You are blessed to be surrounded by so many awesome people!


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
