Feeling Crafty l February 14

Pretty sure the last time I stared at my calendar, I was thinking to myself, 'wow, thanksgiving is coming up soon'....Is it just me or is the time just flying by? Not that I'm complaining, our wedding is now in 201 days. Tomorrow we're almost out of the 200's. That makes me happy. :)

I'm not really one of those girls who thinks guys should splurge on diamonds, flowers and chocolate for Valentines Day. (not that I would turn away nick handing me a bouquet of yellow tulips-what am I, stupid?) I think that we should show the same amount of compassion and kindness to each other on a day to day basis. Flowers on a random thursday are always delightful. I'm also not one of those girls who curses the day and repels the color red all day. I just think that February 14th should be a simple reminder to everyone you love, how much you appreciate them being in your life. It should be shown whatever way you know how.

Found these ideas while flipping through the Martha Stewart magazine over the weekend. It isn't too early to jot down ideas.

p.s. this kind of has to do with valentines day....since I love nick and we are getting married. We had originally planned to go to Ireland for our honeymoon. We had planned to fly out 8-8 and land in Dublin late that evening. With the cost of flights, cost of living and (to put it lightly) overall uneasy state of our country, we thought it best to stay here.

We will be taking a train to New York City and deciding our daily itinerary on a whim. Broadway musical? let's go! Sleep until 11am? why not? Skydive off the Empire State Building? thank you. Anyway-we are both free spirited and will have a wonderful time wherever God allows us to venture to. In honor of New York City, a tune for good measure.
