Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! To those of you who celebrate it, anyway. I've always been rather disappointed in this day - in college, I refused to celebrate it - until my last senior year, when some friends refused to let me stay home by myself. They brought me flowers, and one of them - a dear Indian guy - fixed me real chicken curry. Ahhh, memories. :D

Anyway! This guy is now my valentine. He was playing a computer game Wednesday night, and I made him smile for me. :D

So, what are you doing today/tonight? Do you have a valentine? Do you even care? LOL!!!

To celebrate having over 1000 hits on my blog - and because why not give away something on Valentine's Day?? - I'm going to give away some BLOG CANDY! That's right, dear ones. I'll take entries - by leaving a comment on the blog - between now and Sunday night, Feb. 17. Then, we'll randomly draw. The prize, you ask? An assortment of hand-stamped and photography cards. You're looking at a prize with a retail value of over $20!

I love blessing people. :) Just be sure, if you leave a comment for it, that I know how to get in touch with you if you win!!!! I've given away blog candy on my other blog, and two of the six winners didn't leave me any way of getting in touch with them! :D

BE BLESSED, dear one. Know you are LOVED, each moment of every day. It doesn't matter what the calendar says; love is yours, each day, each moment, each SECOND. God loves you with an everlasting love!!!!!

Ohhh I loves candy.

But I especially wanted to comment on your view of Valentines Day. We never have celebrated it either. Its a jewelery and cardmakers holiday. But as of recent it IS nice to do extra little things for your significant other just to show them how much they mean to you-its nice knowing that you are together cause your are a part of a big plan. Wow! Like showing up for role call without any effort huh?

May your day be blessed and pickle free!!!!

Luv ya

I had to pop over and see what blog candy was. I was racking my brain. I'm very blog term challenged. Thanks for educating me and thanks for entering me in your contest. Sweet blessings!

My Valentine's day was fun yet miserable (but not for the reason you may think!) We had a field trip to a local town to see a lady that races in the ididarod. She had her lead dog with her and gave a wonderful presentation. The miserable part was that I had a light migraine headache ALL day long!!!! I had to miss part of the presentation because of the headache, but was able to catch part of it.
The kids and I went to another local town (remember, we live in a national park, far from everything!)and had pizza. The girls made a killing from selling girl Scout cookies!!! We had a wonderful night! Better than I have had in a VERY, VERY long time!!
Keep my family in your prayers as we are entering into a difficult phase of life!!

Scott and I don't normally celebrate Valentine's Day either. I would rather celebrate our love every day : ) But! He completely surprised me and it was a treat. I might have to rethink this holiday next year.

Thanks for hosting this blog. I don't reply often, but read almost every day.
