I adore Valentine’s Day. For obvious reasons, but my most favorite reason is all the pink! Pink candies, pink roses, pink hearts. It’s heaven. And you have to know by now that I love pink! I kept my decor simple this year by using a lot of my lovely Silhouette Cameo’s designs to give my decor a little paper punch! First with the framed “Adored” phrase and with the cursive “love” phrases as well. I can’t tell you enough about how much I love my Silhouette. I didn’t want my decor to be overly pink or red. I wanted it to blend naturally and effortlessly. I used scrap fabric to wrap my heart wreath that I picked up at a rummage sale. Then I pinned some paper flowers to it with the love phrase. Overall it’s a simple touch of Valentine’s Day Decor that I can live with.
This Valentine’s Day we are writing love notes to each other & hand delivering them to our very own personal mailboxes. Love is such an essential part of our family life that it’s nice to have a special day dedicated purely to love. I think it’s in little actions too, not just words. Don’t get me wrong…I love notes and poems, they are essential. But I’m learning through my beautiful marriage and parenthood that love is a verb. I have to do something. I have to act in love, with love and for love.
“But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 NASB
