Happy Valentines Day From Me To You.

I thought I would just pen a little post today and send some love out into the Universe 💖

Lovers of Jane Austen will know that the above quote comes from her novel, Pride and Prejudice. 

Do you believe in Valentines Day?  Do you celebrate it or do you just studiously ignore it?!  Even if you’re on your own, you can still spoil YOURSELF a little on this day of love.  I’m sure many people will say that they don’t need a special day to mark their love, but for those still going through what seems like a very long Winter, surely it’s lovely to have an excuse to celebrate. I thought I would include some famous love quotes..  In this digital age, I’m sure actually sitting down and writing a love letter seems positively prehistoric!  Well, it works for me!

Does anyone enjoy vintage cards as much as I do?  Here are just a few vintage Valentines cards, courtesy of Pinterest 

So wherever you are reading this, I hope you will all have a lovely day.  One thing I think is really good these days,  is that female friends, if they’re not seeing anyone,  get together on this day and maybe go to watch a movie and have a bite to eat, or just simply cook a meal at home.  Love between friends is very important as we go through our lives. Certainly, I am so thankful for the female friends in my life.  As they say, love is love, and amen to that.

Hope you had a fabulous day. These vintage cards are so pretty and speak to me. I babysat my little sweethearts, so my big sweetheart and I will celebrate Saturday.

Happy belated Valentine's Day to you, Thisisme! I have to admit that it was just a busy day for me as I spent a big part of the morning at school, watching Scootie's science project. The students made volcanoes, and set them off in the parking lot at the school (there were about 30 volcanoes). It was pretty cold, but I wore a warm coat, and, I got a few pictures. Thursday nite was the school's Valentine Dance, and I actually got Shawn to go and stay for most of it. It is usually a fund raiser event and we bring socks and under clothing to donate to the homeless and needy. I always enjoy visiting with the teachers and listening to the music.

I like all of your quotes today, and most of all the quote by Mark Anthony. It's true for a lot of us to wait half our lives to find the best love...I was almost 50 when I met Karo, and I got the last of the best with him.

I apologize for not coming by more often, but your beautiful quotes and England are always in my mind. Have a great week, Thisisme! ♥

Hi there Suzanne, my Texan friend. Don’t worry about being a bit quiet. I know that you are very busy over there. We can’t do everything! That’s amazing that you met Karo when you were almost 50. It was obviously meant to be. It’s a pity that you couldn’t have had a little longer with him, but I’m sure you have many happy memories. That Valentines Dance sounds good and I love how you donate items for the needy. Eli is not so keen on the dances either, but Miss Ruby loves them, of course! 💖. Look after yourself my friend and take care xx
