A Valentine’s Day Thought 

February 14, 2018

As mentioned in the past, even as a little kid I adored this day. The way I look at it, it is a day to shower people with love. By smiling, by saying hello, by holding open a door for someone, by saying “Happy Valentine’s Day!” By baking something for someone, by picking up the phone and calling someone, by sitting in a chair and cherishing memories of someone. As you have probably gathered if you are a regular reader, steadfast rules around holiday traditions is not my thing. Make up your own rules. I have had several folks over the last few weeks at the shops tell me they don’t have a special someone so the holiday is not really for them. Totally fine to feel that way, but I look at this day as so much more. It is a day to embrace loving people. I feel at this time in the world where there is so much division, this is even more paramount. This day of LOVE can be a reminder of spreading the love each and every day. The above heart strand made out of vintage papers presented to me by a longtime customer on Saturday completely made my day. I wanted to share it with you all. Happy Valentine’s Day each and every one of you, from me… X, T
