Today is sunny and beautiful and the birds are chirping and my friend made biscuits for brunch.

Your love Should never be offered to the mouth of a Stranger, Only to someone Who has the valor and daring To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife Then weave them into a blanket To protect you.

I’m not sure exactly where my love of Valentine’s Day came from but if I were to guess, based on this present she gave me, I’d say it was from my mother. ❤ (Taken with instagram)

yes. this. 
i love valentine’s day. 
when we were really little my mom would always give us valentines and/or chocolate. later, when my step-dad would get my mom flowers or chocolate or both or jewelry or whatever, he would also get something for each of us kiddos too. just a little chocolate heart or a flower, something that made us feel special. 
i used to have this belt; it was a thick white elastic band with rainbow colored hearts all over. the clasp was to halves of a red heart that clasped together. i loved it. if i ever find it again, in one of the boxes in my sister’s basement, i will totally sport that sheet. 

i loved making valentines growing up, and i still do, even if i didn’t find the time this year. i keep telling myself maybe i still will…just surprise, who cares about the date, cards. we’ll see…
