L O V E • it’s the simple things in life

As some of you already know, we are on a family vacation in the good ole state of Texas. Yay! We are enjoying the Great Wolf Lodge which means lots of swimming and running around until we are truly exhausted and lots of memories being made.

I do have to admit that I’m a vacation junky. Life can get so busy and seem so programmatic at times so getting away from the norm is just nice.

We explored a little bit of Main Street yesterday which was just dreamy. And, today, we get to spend time with one of my favorite bloggers, Bethany {@bma_21}, and her hubby. Can’t wait.

As I was watching my kids interact with each other and then start to create new friendships while at the water park, it dawned on me in a heartwarming way that relationships are truly a gift from God. Some are momentary, some are for a season, and some are for a lifetime.

“FRIENDSHIP… is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”

C.S. Lewis 

With February being the month to express love and appreciation for your special someone, it’s also the month to express your love and admiration for your other loves: your close friends, your siblings, your kids, your parents, your neighbors. It doesn’t have to be a gift. Just a simple love note will always do.

To be honest, I don’t give my husband a wishlist, and he doesn’t give me one either. He usually just buys me my favorite perfume {which I listed my top favorites in the “shop my post” below}. It’s practical and VERY much needed.. Perfume does’t last long in my world!! To tell you the truth, I seriously just want to spend time with the peeps that I deeply LOVE. Hello… my top love language is quality time.

BUT, What I do enjoy MOST about Valentine’s Day is making OTHERS  feel special. Ahhh, I love mailing cards, passing out love notes, making special “Pinterest style” gifts.. Just letting others know how much value that they add to my life. I think expressing it in a simple way is just as much appreciated. It’s the thought and effort that means the most. 

“You’re pretty much my favorite of all time in the history of ever.”

“Let ALL that you do be done in LOVE.”
1 Corinthians 16:14

So, I don’t have a wishlist to share with you, or a list of places that we might possibly go or anything else that is cool other than two simple outfit inspirations made with items already in my closet. AND, a little extra inspiration to encourage you tell those around you how valuable that they truly are to you today and everyday.

“Do small things with GREAT LOVE.”
Mother Theresa

Inspiration ideas:
•Mail Valentine cards to far away friends.
•Leave heartfelt, homemade cards on your coworkers desk.
•Put sticky notes on doors, windows, and windshields with sweet words.
•Invite other couples or your single girlfriends over for a fun night and have cheesy, love quotes all over the house.

  • Hoy en dia la primera experiencia en computadores se proyecta hacia los correos, mensajes, chatas y facebook. Al inicio de los noventa estas primeras experiencias tenían que ver con el manejo de los sistema operativos, los procesadores de palabras y el Lotus 123 (Antecesor de Excel).Puede ser que en navidad le devuelvan el dinero que pagó por el curso virtual. La esperanza es lo último que se pierde.
