It's this vintage Valentine cute? And I sure would like to label my hubby "All Mine" so everyone who sees him tomorrow will know that he is ALL MINE! I mean he's pretty hot stuff so I feel pretty lucky to be the one he fell in love with.
I know there are a lot of people who don't like Valentine's Day, but I'm a fan. Not crazy go all out and buy new jewelry and go to a super-uber fancy dinner kind of fan, but little love notes, heart shaped pizza, flowers, and these cookies kind of fan.
I think it has to do with the fact that in elementary school I was ALWAYS sick on the day my class had their Valentine's party. 5th grade was the only year I went to school for it and I should have stayed home, but I lied about not being sick [yeahIwasoneofthosekids]. So I never really got to actually hand out the Valentine's I made with the candy heart taped on that I spent hours sorting to make sure they all said the right thing to the right person...[Matt shouldn't get one that said "Go Girl" on it duh!]. I guess I am a fan because I was deprived as a child [stupid flu].
But I am not sick this year! So bring on the pink pancakes with strawberries [he gave them to me because they are my favorite], sweet hidden love notes, "make-out" cookies and heart-shaped pizza!
Cheers to LOVE.

p.s. if it's just you this year with no sweetheart...give yourself a "love" gift of a pedicure, a day just for you, some flowers, or that cupcake that's calling your name in the window. Trust me, I've been there and sometimes you just have to take all the extra love floating around and claim it as your's.
Alright, I know I have been super MIA most of 2013 so far...don't hate me! I have some excuses:
first there was the holidays, I was in a blogger rut, there has been a lot of crazy happening at work...ok all lame I know, but the point is that I'm back.
Part of my blogging rut was my lack of inspiration and the question of why I keep this blog [all very existential I know]. The past few days, as I have been reading the blogs I regularly follow and discovering some new ones, I realized that I write this to share pieces of my [our] story and the stories of others around me. When I started writing here again shortly after moving to Flag, I had some big dreams for this site...however, I discovered I like simply sharing basic life musings, the occasional DIY, and photos from our adventures here. Those big super awesome dreams will have to be saved for a different site to come later.
That all being said, here is a site that is achieving some big awesome dreams and is working to inspire, encourage, and support women- both young and old- in the adventure called life.... check them out!
To those over at the Good Woman Project, thank you for doing what you're doing and for inspiring me to keep writing and sharing my story.
To all my readers, I'm back with some new stuff. I promise!
