L Is For Love

And Mary had a little lamb that followed her everywhere... even school! I wonder if this is the same lamb.....
Another mystery I suppose.
Here is what is not a mystery, well, I suppose it sometimes can be, but it's much more than that.... it's love.

I am always a hopeless romantic. Especially during the month of February... the month of love.
Each day in February I give the hubster a valentine. This is a tradition I have done for years. Each year I spend hours trying to find enough Valentines to fill each day, and with just the right words to say. (If you are my friend, or follow me publicly on Facebook, you may have seen these Valentines. I have shared them with everyone else this year too!)
What I also did for the hubster, that Facebook won't be getting from me, is purchasing the tie... yeah a boring tie.... for our wedding day. We decided on Tiffany Blue as the color of the theme, to go with the white & black, so I purchased a silk tie in Tiffany blue for the big day. Hard to believe we have been together going on 14 years and still not married legally, but we will be, no rush.... lol...
This is a photo from the shop where I bought it.
Check them out on Etsy!
It is the exact color that his tie, his best man's boutonniere, and my maid-of-honor's dress will be. There won't be any other party members to worry about coordinating with.
I also got the hubster a lovey-dovey box of Lindt chocolates. It is one of the things I always request, so I figured I would return the favor.
Lastly, I made his card.
Yup. It's not that I am cheap, but you can't find what I wanted to say on ANY Hallmark card. You won't find it on any card for that matter..... except mine!
If you know what MILF means than you can figure out DILF. If you don't, sorry, but I'm not saying it on here so Google it.  :-)
Lastly, when it gets closer to the big V-Day, I'm going to go and get my hubster one long stem red rose. Yup. Believe or not some men appreciate roses too.
Anyway, that's the hopeless romantic at work..... I may leave a love poem or sing a song and send to his text.... you just never know what I may do with love hangin' in the air.

What about you? Are you the romantic and do crazy-in-love things, or do you prefer to be spoiled?? Any plans???

  1. Wow, you guys have been together 14-years and you're now getting hitched? That's amazing news! Well...congrats! This is really exciting. Our wedding color was a soft blue. You know the color blue you would find in the late 70s. lol This year we will kick off our 35th anniversary. The years really have a way of getting away from you. Now, I just love the idea of giving a Valentine's each day and home-made ones are the best. I may have to try to do this next year, since I pretty much can't do that this year. Of course, I did make hand-create one for DH using one of my many rubber-stamps. I probably will share that on my blog soon. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Valentine's Day is a double whammy in this house, because it is also my husband's birthday!! We always give each other cards, but he gets two or three (depending on what our dog children come up with). We always have a nice dinner out that night (his Valentine's gift to me).

  3. I like your lovely L post! Sometimes testing the waters is the thing to do. My hubby and I waited about 8 years before we finally said I do!

  4. Homemade cards are often best. I have (great) trouble finding an already-made that I like. I usually make a card out of a photo I've taken of a favorite place we've traveled to.
    February is the month of our wedding anniversary (and my birthday and our first born's).

  7. I like the little things that Mr. Jenny and I do for each other...

    Sometimes I will leave little notes laying on his desk, so when he looks at them he knows I love him!

    Lovely post for the letter "L".

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
