Happy New Year!

As soon as Christmas is over, I cannot wait to pull out Valentine decorations! These are probably my most favorite ornaments. Just love them!

I seem to get giddy over Valentine's Day each year. Of course, it helps that we have a Valentine of our very own living here who'll be turning 7 this year!
I knew I was scheduled for a cesarean section on the 16th of February, 2001. Loving Valentine's Day as I did and knowing a day or two difference in my new baby's birth probably wouldn't be a huge thing, I asked (okay - begged) my doctor to schedule it for the 14th. He didn't answer me, just smiled. I was squealing with joy when I received a notice in the mail of my c-section schedule. Yippee!! A Valentine's Baby! I had so much fun picking out papers to make her announcements.
I'll admit, there have been a few times that I've had second thoughts about picking that particular day because I've missed out on having it to myself. But I'd have to say, it's all worth it!

I adore Valentine's Day too but I don't have many decorations. I think I need to get busy and make some!

I had never throught to decorate my home for valentines day! Perhaps I should. All our anniversaries are around then. On the 14th, of course, is valentines day, then exactly 2 weeks later, is my birthday, and then exactly 2 weeks after that is our anniversary of getting together (11 years this year! My husband says that anniversary should become obsolete after getting married, but I still like to celebrate it. ;) )

I wonder what your daughter will think when she grows up and has her birthday on valentines day? She and her future hubby should make an "I Love You Day" so they can have a seperate day for expressing their love in this manner. (We also have one of these. *ahem* Can you tell gifts and quality time are high on my love languages? *grin*)
