Hello, February + Valentine's Giveaway

valentines day giveaway
Oh February, you're finally here! For as long as I can remember, February has always been my favorite month...admittedly due to the arrival of Valentine's Day. As a hopeless romantic, my heart always lights up during the time of year when heart-shaped everything is everywhere and I have a viable excuse to celebrate  l o v e.

February makes me nostalgic for the days I would bring a shoe box to school to adorn with glitter and fill with sweet cards from my classmates. It takes me back the porch step of my first boyfriend's house where he gave me my very first real Valentine's gift, the sweetest little teddy bear that made my teenage heart skip a beat. It makes me think of the people I adore most. But most of all, it makes me excited to think of ways I can make their 14th of February a little sweeter.

Over the years, I've found most of us have strong feelings about Valentine's Day. Some allow this holiday to make them feel sad if they aren't in love while others make extravagant plans with their loved ones. I've come to realize the reason I adore Valentine's Day so much is because I've never associated it with an expectation of any kind. I love this day because it gives me an excuse to celebrate all kinds of love. 

That being said, I've been so enjoying browsing through Valentine's cards and picking out favorites for those I adore as well as the lovely people who have sent sweet notes to my P.O. Box! I can't wait to send them out, celebrate, and make memories this 14th of February.

What do you love most about Valentine's Day? Share your favorite thing about this holiday to be entered to win the adorable "P.S. I love you" trinket dish pictured above ❤️

  5. I can tend toward the mushy when it comes to loving my family, much to my more stoic husbands chagrin. As such, I often tone it down when showering my loves with love, except on Valentine's Day. This is the day I pull out all the stops: homemade Valentines, glitter, candy hearts, corny poems, and PINK. Lots and lots of pink. Everywhere!
