And today I share the love

It's Valentine's Day. Nothing reminds me more of those Valentine's Day parties at school as a kid more than conversation hearts. I still love the little bits of sugary goodness even though they really don't have much flavor. The sayings on them these days make me laugh, though. "Fax Me" and "E-mail Me" make me laugh because they are so modern on such an old-fashioned candy. This year, Necco went with weather related sayings. (from their website) The 10 new weather and nature-inspired sayings, such as “Melt My Heart,” “In A Fog,” and “Chill Out,” capture the day-to-day frenzy of forecasting changing weather patterns and pay tribute to Americans’ ever-evolving affections. Other new weather and nature-inspired sayings include: “Cloud Nine,” “Heat Wave,” “Sun Shine,” “Get My Drift,” “Wild Life,” “Nature Lover,” and “Do Good.” This Valentine’s Day, love’s in the forecast, come rain or shine, sleet or snow!

To be honest, I don't really do much for Valentine's Day. Okay, the being single probably has a bit to do with it, but even when I'm dating someone, I don't expect much for the day. Then again, it's been so long since I celebrated Valentine's Day with a boyfriend...

But since today is a day for sharing the love, I want to tell those who read my blog how much I appreciate you sharing little bits of my life. I hope you can take away something useful or a bit of a smile from my trials and adventures in life. Anyway, since this is a day to share the love, I want to do just that with my blogger friends. So, I created a bit of blog bling using the Acme Heart Maker. Yes, you can make your own conversation heart and share it with the one you love.

So, Julie at Causes Rats... I give you bling because I totally love your pictures. I do have to say, I'm jealous of your new camera!!

Moma, I give you bling because I would not be the person I am today without you!

Sis C, you are were my sister first and have become my friend. I know that sounds kind-of cliche, but it is true. I'm glad. (And Sis A, you too, but you don't have a blog for me to give you bling! hint, hint.)

So, you three, today I give you bling for your blog. For everyone else who reads my blog on a regular basis, or if you've just stumbled across it today. Thank you for reading.

Like I really have anything to write about or the creative ability to do it. Moma and Carrie have both said the same thing to me. Maybe I will try someday.

Amy, you can be a "Mom Blogger" --start slapping some pictures of your kids and telling what they do that's funny/witty/mundane. If nothing else, the aunts and grandmothers would love it.
