5 Reasons To Decorate For Valentine's Day

My husband and I were friends for about three years before we started dating.
I knew that he wanted to take our relationship to the next level when he called me on Valentine's Day in 1982.
I will never forget that call.
I was at home taking apart a quilt.

That Valentine's Day craft was busy work to keep me distracted on what could have been a pity party day because I wasn't with someone.
The quilt was eventually re-made and
we got married a little over a year later.

I've been sprinkling a few Valentine's Day decorations around since my children were little.

Here are 5 good reasons to decorate for Valentine's Day. 

#1. The holiday decorations are put away and the house looks a little barren.

#2. It's winter so not much is going on and life is a little boring. Brighten it up with a little decor.

#3. Pink and red are fun pops of color.

#4. Hearts are a sweet and classic motif.

#5. We all need a little more love in our life.

Even if you aren't with a special someone, there are always those in our sphere that need a little encouragement and extra love.

Have a wonderful Monday.
Let's Keep In Touch tomorrow for a link party.
